    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. I get along with everyone in the office and the option to work some from home is wonderful for my schedule.

    Cons

    The training culture is a bit of "sink or swim" as you are thrown into a full desk following a few weeks of desk ridealongs

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are NOT any pros. Quite frankly the worst company on the planet. Shame on them for actually accepting the Ethics award, they should be ashamed of the way they treat their employees!!

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible raises, benefits are minimal at best. No possibly way to advance. Sneaky, terrible management, what ever you do don't go over the bosses head to the CEO or they WILL fire you! They are governed by their clients and don't care one bit about their employees. Toxic place to work!!!
    STAY AWAY!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Think more about your employees, they're the people keeping your company going. Give the people who have put their lives into the company some appreciation not just Management!

    Pros

    Great people I work with.

    Cons

    No movement for women to progress their career. Men make up more than 75% of producers. Women are looked over and made to process, amongst, sell, and service clients. There is no work life balance for women, and are paid MUCH less than male counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. When they bring you an issue discuss with them, and possible fixes. Talk to your women employees. They do more than most of the work for Producers and are not compensated.
