    Pros

    If you like to be busy, this is the place to be. Constant change = constant (and often crazy) work. Work schedule is typically flexible and there are allowances for working from home.

    Cons

    If you don't play politics, don't expect to get ahead here. There is somewhat of a 'group think' mentality here. Because of this, no one wants to make tough decisions and projects tend to drag out.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of PTO, good salary (except raises) no micro management, great teamwork and nice office.

    Cons

    My position was "eliminated". In reality it went to India. Job is paperless so the only thing the company was looking to do was save a few bucks in wages. A company with 14+ billion revenue would rather have cheap labor than keep good loyal employees. I have seen so many good employees laid off. I was hoping to retire from Marsh in a few years. Now I am looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees for what they know and not how cheap they can be paid. The end result will be clients will go elsewhere costing the company more.

    Pros

    Largest broker in the world. Segmented groups allow for greater focus and expertise. The majority of employees have positive attitudes and enjoy what they do. Numerous employees that left the firm have come back proving that the grass isn't always greener.

    Cons

    Corporate structure can be slow at times. Not necessarily a con, but you will need to be patient to see large pay increase.
