    Pros

    Great leadership. The location and overall benefit package is great. Dan Glaser has done a great job of turning this company around.

    Cons

    The performance review process needs to be improved. Hard to determine how colleague progress is being measured. There needs to be more objectivity in evaluating performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some key leaders are out of touch.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Worked at Marsh within an IT leadership position and found it very rewarding to be a part of a team that wanted to make a difference. The people and senior leaders at Marsh are very organized and genuinely care about the internal and external impacts of decisions made. Huge opportunity for growth within a large corporation.

    Cons

    Analysis Paralysis. The teams need to get out of their own way so tasks can get finished. Death by meeting also marred the experience a bit. Process perfection was touted even at the expense of project completion which is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you need to step aside and let your leaders lead. Micromanagement does not have a place when there is so much work to be done.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, polished environment, overall great place for your next career move. I would recommend more training for current roles so employees after several years do not become more stagnated.

    Cons

    After several years you can become stagnated if you do not seek other career avenues within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say more training to develop skills so the employee can expand his role and be a better contributor. Have senior management build more communication avenues to better understand the role there employees need to fulfill there job expectations.

    The two areas that Marsh U.S. Consumer needs to improve the most is in communications and limiting the abuse of cross-functioning teams.
