    I worked at Gallagher full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind, in 3 years working their only 6 months was good.

    Cons

    Account executives fear letting anyone getting close to the accounts, some executive's cant even do the basics and then pass the blame onto anyone else such as report writing or even simply turning up, lies told by account executives to cover up their inadequacies, management then don't look into and take their word as gospel. Line management micro manage. So many changes there is no stability, 4 heads of office... in 3 years says it all, there is still a division between former oval, heath lambert, oxygen and giles staff. Awful company, talks about being a ethical company but treats hardworking staff like something you would scrape off your shoe

    Advice to Management

    Have some consistency. Stop blaming account handlers, stop the in fighting, to many people trying to protect their position and hiding behind others
