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

    Pros

    Role is challenging but rewarding. Truly feel that my direct Manager values my input and ideas and is dedicated to improving our department.

    Office Perks - Corporate Office has a free gym on site with great work out classes offered. Coffee bar and sushi bar in cafeteria. Nice outdoor work spaces and either a treadmill or bike desk on every floor.

    Cons

    For corporate headquarters, you will need to live in the suburbs or have a car. It's difficult to get to from downtown.

    I worked at Gallagher full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome management structure, great company with a good culture. They really care about their employees.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of structured training- definitely not a job for people that don't have self-starter personalities.


  5. "Potential to be great"

    Current Employee - Account Coordinator in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Gallagher full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The right people could really move up. Starting pay was good for the job it was. During most of the year the hours were reasonable and being insurance industry there was always a vendor bringing in some kind of food or buying concert tickets or other perks for the staff.

    Cons

    The work could be very boring a lot of the time. Hours during 4th quarter busy season could get crazy. Rampant nepotism was a major problem, and adult children of senior staff could get away with murder and have no consequences. Very cliquey atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your good-for-nothing kids.

    Pros

    They do not micro manage as long as work gets done. For a large company they have a family company feel.

    Cons

    The work load can get pretty large. Assistants are assigned by account not to Client Service Manager
