I have been working at Gallagher full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Hard to think of any

Cons

Not sure how a publicly traded company could have so much nepotism. Only way to get anywhere here is if your last name starts with a G and ends with an R. You do have a chance if your a cousin, but if your reading this and looking for advice, your probably not a Family member. Intern program is a joke, more of the same nepotism. One of these days Wall Street will figure this out. Perhaps then something will change. Good employees are leaving rapidly and morale is at an all time low. Ask them they did an employee survey that shows those results. The Gallagher way they talk about is not the document they claim. The Gallagher way is to take advantage of good hard working employees and reward the family with big pay while they do nothing.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work in hiring and promoting family. Before long only family will work for the company and nothing will get done. Start hiring and promoting qualified employees and the company might grow into the national company it could be.

    I worked at Gallagher as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    none here, stay away if you are a REAL software engineer.

    Cons

    if you love SharePoint, work here.

    If you know SharePoint is a pile of shiza, don't. SharePoint is their bread and butter. Consultants make millions off of supporting their sharepoint systems that crash all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real developers and get the f rid of ShareSh**. (SharePoint)
