    Pros

    Outstanding benefits with leaders that truly care about the team, our clients, and go the extra mile to ensure we ALWAYS deliver quality! I know I have been blessed to be working for MMC!

    Cons

    I feel we have an opportunity to move towards the 21st century more regarding flexibility and enabling more roles to be mobile / work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Continue celebrating your colleagues and the phenomenal (internal & external) things they do every day!

    Pros

    Marsh has established itself as a powerhouse in the marketplace. People recognize that and they can use that leverage to their benefit. The culture and company values are great. The company really cares about their people, and it is always priority number one. Leadership is the best in the business, and they are always looking to better the company, their employees, and grow. There is also lots of potential to move laterally into many different sectors of the company if you do your due diligence.

    Cons

    If you are in an entry-level position, the compensation and time off are not ideal. However, you know what you are getting into. It takes a little longer than expected to move into a promotion or another role in the company. Everything at this company takes awhile to gain movement, as in they are slow to make decisions.

    Pros

    Great Colleagues. The benefits are amazing and the leadership is the best in the industry. The company is worldwide and has more of a partnership philosophy. The colleagues in my office have an average of 25 years experience in the industry and take pride in their job. The knowledge among the colleagues and teams are a huge asset and a great resource.

    Cons

    The challenges are the company is large and there a several processes to work through get a simple task completed. This in result makes it very difficult to manage a task or project in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who are out there actually working with the clients. Those individuals know what the clients want and how they want the services delivered.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is a great place to work. Fantastic benefits and a great work-life balance. Smart people and not too political. Tons of vacation time and separate sick days makes it very accommodating. Subsidized cafeteria makes lunch cheap, and in-building gym is super convenient. Super stable environment and company. Great for someone not looking for a crazy lifestyle.

    Cons

    I didn't find any cons, except for the slow pace - at times it can be inert. Bonuses didn't increase, nor did salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Help create more projects for everyone to keep people busy. Give them real goals. And deadlines. Create more cross-department interaction and training programs - anything to bring more visibility between departments.
