    I have been working at Gallagher full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company as a whole is a great place to work - the culture is very strong and supportive. The communication - especially from management - during COVID-19 has been very good. It's a unique place to work in that it is a publically traded; but run by the Gallagher family - which makes the culture that much stronger. Another unique aspect is that Gallagher is very entrepreneurial in that they are always striving to find new ways to address issues; which allows for people to be creative and launch new initiatives. One of the biggest initiatives and I would say unexpected benefits is the Internship Program - where 5-600 interns descend on Gallagher offices and it makes the work environment very exciting. The service to the community component is also an unexpected benefit in that Gallagher invests in communities and programs in which we live. The company has launched many national and regional partnerships and sponsorships (Special Olympics, Sports teams and Leagues (UK).

    Cons

    As with any company, there are downsides; however, in my opinion, the good outweighs the bad. The benefits offered need an upgrade in general - they could offer more creative and relevant benefits to younger people (college debt programs, etc.) Medical plans are expensive and are all high deductible plans. The company does contribute to the high deductible plans - which helps, but is not substantial.
