    I have been working at Gallagher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Gallagher is one of the best in the country, which is one of the reasons we merged our organization with them. The opportunities to grow and become better at what we do are available to everyone. There is also great flexibility in work-life balance. Management is supportive and provides coaching and mentoring.

    Cons

    As an extension of a larger office on the other side of the state, sometimes it feels like we're left out of things. Though that's only due to geographical distances.

    Advice to Management

    Small and Mid-Sized Market offices feel more exposed to competition than that of larger markets, and need to feel supported more during transitions after an acquisition. They chose to merge with Gallagher because of the capabilities and culture, but sometimes they don't quite understand all of the capabilities that come with being part of the Gallagher family.

    I have been working at Gallagher full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I currently work in the affinity division, so this might not pertain to other divisions within Gallagher. I work from home full time and absolutely love it. Gallagher provides you with company equipment to work off of and provides great benefits. Coming from a smaller creative agency that didn't provide very much of anything I'm very grateful. The first 5 years you get 10 paid vacation days with 2 floating holidays. After 5 years you get an additional 5 days to add on to your vacation time. After 1 year of working with the company they will match up to 3% for your 401K. There is a lot of room for growth as Gallagher is continuously expanding. I enjoy everyone that I work with. There's a reason why Gallagher is named best places to work, and best global company for this year!

    Cons

    I honestly don't have any

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great outlook in a secure industry. I think management is guiding the company in the right direction compared to its peers.

    Benefits could be better considering the company is an insurance broker, long 401k vesting period compared to others, low pay compared to elsewhere.
