good for starter but too much of politics

Process Associate (Current Employee)
Pune

I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time for more than a year

Pros70% of the staff is beautiful girls.

no dress code.

rotational shift so you get a chance to experience all.

pay good for overtime infact best in the market.

Constoo much politics.

beautiful girls get a advance over hardworking employee.

if you can make the manager happy with girls stuffs u get promotion and trasitions within a year no matter ur talented or not.

talent and hardwork doesnt pay at all but polishing butter to tl will

no sick leave direct lop

they dont pay a day for 550 rs but cut that as 1 day lop.

canteen suck no option available....

Advice to Senior Managementpay attention to work not beauty of girls.

have a dress code for girls after all it a place to work not show off.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Probably above average for large US broker/consultants

Consulting/Compliance (Current Employee)

I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time for more than 8 years

ProsOpportunities exist for self-starters. Don't wait for management or anyone else show your career path. If you go to work there, take time to learn how the company operates, really before starting out on your own career path. The extent to which you succeed will be largely based on your ability to see a need and fill it, while doing what is expected of you. The company is large, geographically dispersed and it's regions are led by very different people. In many ways, your success will depend on your location and the division. Definitely not a place to be nurtured.

ConsOverall, the cons of this organization really depend on your division and your location. Being the right gender doesn't hurt either. The biggest con is the lack of management accountability.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of your bubble and start finding out what's really going on in some areas of the company, significant areas. Every once in a while acknowledge the flaws and what the company is doing to address them. No companies perfect, and trying to pretend that you are only makes the employees skeptical about what they're being told.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Insurance broker

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

Proslarge, multinational firm with access to many carriers and programs

ConsGrown through acquisition, but offices run independently, not much collaboration. Disparate, poorly managed, slow to adopt and culturally lacking. People stay due to lack of other opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire and support personnel who think outside box. Brokers do not know how to pick up phone, search for new business. Will not change until management is removed

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
