    I have been working at Gallagher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits, non-management staff are friendly.

    Cons

    For IT, UK is a drone site only. The US is where all the skills, training and investment is focused

    Senior Management filter too much upwards to leadership, they will take the praise for anything positive and shout and bang the desk for anything negative.

    Lacking in career development or investment in careers and training. There’s a lot of lip service, although in reality very little happens (apart from a few CBT’s if you lucky enough to get them).

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your biggest asset - You should care and look after them.

    Pros

    great place to work if you enjoy gossiping and free coffee

    Cons

    to summarise, managers are a bunch of nobodies, with no degrees and proper education somehow made it to the positions they're currently at. also, the company is all about who you know and what you know so be prepared to "kiss the ring"

    Advice to Management

    learn more about ethics and morality
