    Pros

    70% 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.

    Cons

    too 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 ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to work not beauty of girls.

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

    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

    Pros

    The reasons to work there: a large company with tons of helpful resources, each branch office maintains it's own cultural identity.

    Cons

    Cons: San Francisco location is not in the financial district, its hard to get too. Little or no reward for hard work and dedication. Management suffers from lack of management training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though AJG is a sales organization, it behooves management to recognize the hard work and dedication of the non sales team.

    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great earnings potential. Autonomous branch operations. Flexibility. Exposure to a great deal of high level risk management strategies.

    Cons

    Fragmented culture. Constant acquisitions by Corporate. Lack of resources provided to branch. No clear direction by management. Bottom line driven. Constant training of tech resources that do little to improve product or customer relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adhere to the philosophy of putting your people first, not your profits. Develop an "acquisition game plan" in regards to expectations, training, and how to access AJG's global resources. Develop a centralized marketing hub or regional marketing position to assist in account placement.
