    I worked at Gallagher full-time

    Pros

    Good location in central Toronto.

    Cons

    They made decisions based on gossip and treated clients and colleagues with utter disdain. It was not unusual to hear outrageous insults at the office for no apparent reason. One of their teams even got moved to a different floor in the building because they didn't get along with the other team.

    Poor office management which bring morale down. Not consistent with messaging regards hours, home-office or vacation. Seemed like some staff were treated better than others.
