    Former Employee - Processing Specialist in Las Vegas, NV
    Former Employee - Processing Specialist in Las Vegas, NV

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

    Pros

    The starting pay for individuals without any experience in a brokerage firm is competitive.

    Cons

    They DO NOT offer annual raises or cost of living adjustments, despite what they say in the interview process. It is extremely difficult to advance and they, again despite what they claim, DO NOT value education or pay more for higher education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs to unite. There is a "us versus them" attitude between the client advisers (sales) and the operations community. The sales side receives bonuses, raises, and a higher base pay, whereas the operations side is told that they are lucky to have a position and do not merit additional pay.

    Employees are asked to do more and more, for the same salary.

    Salary Good, but too internally focused

    Current Employee - Client Advisor in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Client Advisor in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good, local management is great, but corporate focus on internal processes and procedures makes client service a secondary goal, if that. Driven to automate to drive down costs and increase shareholder value.

    Cons

    Internal focus, lack of support, systems that do not work but employees are encouraged and rewarded for saying that they do. Spin machine in full use at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what Marsh was known for. Superior people, superior service, and work-life balance for colleagues.

    Former Employee - Policy Analyst in Austin, TX

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked for Marsh Inc. as a Policy Reviewer for a new hub opening in Austin. Attention to detail demanding, okay folks, benefits and pay were great.

    Cons

    Unfortunate power plays and politics between departments and hubs, their inability to communicate caused a failing and closure of the hub.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solidify policies and practices before instituting a new department and foster communication and compliance between QA and review departments.

    The operating companies have gotten their act together while Corporate is political and poorly managed

    Pros

    Great CEO, good benefits, reasonable work life balance. High collaboration across departments. Some of the operating companies increasingly reward talent.

    Cons

    Corporate is full of politicians, who don't care about talent. Too many empty suits in important positions in Finance and HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the heads of all functions at corporate and get rid of the clueless ones. Base assessment of employees on achievement of outcomes, and not apearances.
