No opinion of CEO

I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lunch with vendors, and other misc perks from vendors

Cons

Outdated computer systems; constantly freezing or shutting down. Very unmanageable workload. Major micro-managing, totally out of control with no Supv support. Allegedly paperless, but without any uniform process; a real nightmare. Overabundance of emails from mgmt were a major distraction to completing work. Client/customer satisfaction no longer the focus, just a numbers game. Very low morale, lack of communication, no team atmosphere, more like CYOA. A lot of pressure to work OT, no personal life (I worked over 70 hrs/wk). Frozen pay...unless you were an office pet. Very unprofessional office manager; i.e. if you were not related or hand-picked, your life was made miserable to the point of forcing you to quit or be fired. No job security...the overall tone was you could easily be replaced...and many were.

Advice to Management

Look in the mirror, listen to yourselves
