    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with GB for over 10 years and it has been a great experience. I was hired as a Claims Adjuster/Resolution Manager, then was promoted to a Senior, and then a Supervisor. GB is very invested in their employees and will do their best to promote their employees. There are flexible work schedules. You can dress casual to work. Great team/unit environment.

    Cons

    Some clients can be demanding.

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time

    Pros

    I had a good manager and team and enjoyed the group of people I worked with, which made it an overall good work experience.

    Cons

    There is little room for career growth, especially if you are not part of the intern/extern program. Good workers don't see adequate raises as they aren't on the fixed raise schedule the externs are on which can result in high turnover.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, ability to work from home, supplies equipment to work from home, paid licensing

    Cons

    Work life balance, low salary with lower annual increases

    Advice to Management

    Pay current employees as much as you pay to recruit new hires, lower health insurance premiums would also be nice particularly when annual increases barely cover the increased yearly cost for same

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

    Pros

    Benefits offered were good, considering todays job world. Not much overtime necessary.
    The new exit ramp from the highway makes it easier to get to work.

    Cons

    If your not in the "Crowd" your not going to go anywhere. No casual Friday, no Summer hours, assigned lunch times and management is completely inflexible in regard to allowing you to change your start time or end time to attend an appointment or child's function.

    Advice to Management

    Step into the current century as it will not bend the "Gallagher Way".

    Pros

    Gallagher is huge which allows for many growth possibilities. They are large enough to invest in many different support departments which allow you to concentrate on the claims handling. There as so many supportive knowledgeable employees who have been here for years. Our office is very hard working and dedicated but has laughter, helpfulness and support.

    Cons

    This is a very fast paced environment. This can be considered a con for some but your day goes by quickly and you leave with a real sense of accomplishment.
