    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time

    Pros

    1. It was a great place to learn about the investment consultant business.
    2. There was opportunity to do what you want.
    3. Hours were flexible and you could almost do anything you want.
    4. Most of the people there were really knowledgeable.

    Cons

    1. Turnover among the analysts seems to be high.
    2. The total compensation is significantly below market, bonus isn't that great either
    3. Some people tend to say inappropriate things (in a non-joking manner)
    4. Very negative environment
    5. One of the supervisors, lead analysts just passes off work and supervisory duties, doesn't really provide training, demands tons of spreadsheets and meetings, really not sure what value she adds because nothing became more efficient.
    6. A lot of opportunity goes to senior people first, then to new people overloading the best people and giving none of the interesting opportunities to newer people.

    Advice to Management

    1. Fire / Push the couple of dead weights out of the office or demote them and promote people who will get things done. Need to address the root of the problems.
    2. Spread work evenly among everyone
    3. Give more opportunity to new people
    4. Increase compensation to match the market.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Newer work space with friendly cleaning staff.

    Cons

    Low salary, complete disarray of organization, no opportunities for professional growth/development, only care about production/numbers, no incentive to work hard/perform.

    On top of the abovementioned, management is passive, vindictive, and cannot be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Whole organization needs to be restructured. High turnover rate and no work life balance is encouraged. Instead staff is given a lecutre on time efficency with an example of not taking a lunch break or eating shorter lunches.
