    Glass ceiling - Can be a great place to work but treatment can be inconsistent.

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many great individuals as colleagues, interesting work, decent benefits, stock purchase opportunity, growth focus, diversified business

    Cons

    Old boys' network; very tight and almost always late on salary increases, if any; no synergy between regions; nepotism that is unwarranted - incompetence tolerated from "family" members - but not others, producer comp not competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and keep valuable employees, address inconsistencies, create synergies, address compensation timely and pay competitively.

    Pros

    civic. - minded, ethical. Decent work - life balance

    Cons

    No training, little job security, no career path, no pension, poor 401K (annual contribution 12/31, sucks!), subpar income opportunity, poor management, everthing is about the shareholder and the nepotistic select . They'll present an attractive carrot to attract you and then change the game !'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits and compensation not competitive with competition. Poor support demonstrated my retention. Poor sales management. Excessive and unfair nepotism. obvious extreamist focus of the shareholder over the treatment of the employee effectives moral. Corporate greed is obvious

    Current Employee - Summer Intern

    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    They are very dedicated to their internship program and invest a lot in interns with hopes that they will start a career at Gallagher. First and second year interns have a chance to travel to the home office in Itasca, just outside of Chicago. I actually had the chance to meet executive officers and even the CEO of an international company. There was a lot of hands on learning and group oriented work during the internship

    Cons

    The second summer that I interned there, there was some repetitive work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe create a more specified track for interns that come back for a second summer to eliminate the repetition
