small but nice professional office with friendly staff; independent work supervision with assistant; expectations of 100% closure ratios for liability claims. Some stress associated when time taken off for holidays etc. due to continual work assignments and targets while outside of office.
Good work culture, excellent people, Good profile. The management is excellent. The team is one and work together for the betterment of the company. You also get excellent support from your colleagues.
The culture at AJG would be easily summarized with 'The beatings will continue until morale improves'. Compensation for work performed did not match promised or described prior to joining. The dirty internal politics played by coworkers is learned is fostered from management. The company is keen on acquiring offices followed by cutting the resulting redundant personnel. Despite suggestions of consulting expertise in the area of compensation, in Canada, the company does not conduct or deliver appropriate compensation by role for staff in the company. Negotiations for salary is a free for all. The strategy for Canada seems driven by new western directors who lack competence themselves to do anything well other than throw employees who do not fit down the stairs or under a bus. The coffee was decent and most coworkers are nice.
Lessons in company politics were delivered constantly
This is a massive international company so each office will have its own feel but overall this a strong growing brokerage with lots of room to move up. They look after their employees and reward performance.
Arthur J. Gallagher gave me many opportunities to grow and expand my I.T knowledge. A typical day at work was either good or fast paced with lots of tasks to complete. I learned how to properly manage time, how to troubleshoot many user issues properly and much more. My management was a dream, both of my bosses were very pleasant and professional. The hardest part of the job was learning new technologies and overcoming the obstacles that they might bring, however it was also the most enjoyable part.
Excellent place to work, with management and team members. Enjoyed providing the best possible client service. Hardest Part of the job, was dealing with difficult clients, but through internal seminars, became better equipped with dealing with difficult clients. The most enjoyable part of the job was reaching personal goals along with management goals.
