    Former Employee - Senior Client Representative

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to high profile Fortune 100 clients. Great co-workers with wide range of experience. Good benefits and paid time off is generous.

    Cons

    Outsourcing duties such as Accounts Payable to INDIA. Constant changes to software. Trying to produce an invoice and get it turned around within a day is almost impossible. Too much red tape! Below average raises for mid-tier employees. Communication from top to bottom is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop re-inventing systems Mdoc's etc...every 3-4 yrs. A new platfort/system will roll out but still has kinks that need to be fixed and little support to fix it in a timely fashion. Bring back jobs to the US so that when you do need to speak to someone in accounts payable that you can understand their English. Reward those employees that go above and beyond (more then a 3% raise!).

    Pros

    Stable organization. Clean and safe facilities.

    Focus on market performance is obsessive.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
