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

    Pros

    Diversified company with significant opportunities to move around. If one is dissatisfied with one's job, one can switch to another until one finds the right fit.

    Cons

    Salary is not necessarily competitive because the know they can get away with it because of their good reputation as they are a global company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff can compensated better.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Poor technology
    Not all departments supported
    Lay people off easily!
    Unimpressive salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees. These employees put in so much and you just kick them at the drop of a dime!

    Pros

    Nice people
    Great benefits
    Varied work available

    Cons

    Don't expect to be paid well
    No raise in 3 years - despite consistent "above expectation" performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop internal staff instead of constantly looking outside the company for people who were developed by their previous employers.

    Pros

    The company is one of the few left with a pension plan if you work at least 5 years. Generally, good benefits, but copays seem higher than the case with my prior employer and some of the limits on benefits seem low. Good place, however, if you want to get out the door before 5 PM. Few seem to stay after that in the office. Many positions allow you to work remotely, at least part of the time.

    Cons

    Lack of loyalty...company has no problem sacrificing employees even if revenues have long been known to be off the mark. Company lacks good systems to track basic details of who and how much business is done with which carrier in some business units.

    Pros

    Some good people but they cant grow in the firm because of other low grade colleagues.

    Cons

    If you like politics and politics and dont want to do any work.. then please join that place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to listen to the colleagues rather than just listening to their golf buddies.

    Pros

    The view of Hoboken, NJ office is just gorgeous, this is probably one of the season that I decide to stay in this company. You will meet a lot of nice and friendly colleagues in the company, which is a big plus.

    Cons

    The managers are the experts at what we are doing, but they lack the necessary management skills in general. In case of any organization changes or instructions to be distributed, you are literally sitting in the dark.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think appreciation and trust are the keys to keep the talents in your company. There are tons of talented ones in this organization, but I find the appreciation and trust somewhat lacking. For most of the time, only the upper level managers are aware of what is going on, the rest of the crew are kept in the dark, which discourage the engagement within the organization.

    Pros

    Leader in industry. Strong relationships with the markets.

    Cons

    Layoffs and outsourcing over the last few years have created poor morale. Less people doing more work.

    Flow of communication from management downward is deficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When outsourcing, formulate a wise transition plan. They have been too short in the past, creating huge gaps that create more work on the back end to remediate.

    Pros

    Great for a career in insurance brokerage. Benefits are pretty solid. Tuition reimbursement. Great work and life balance. International opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is poor. Growth opportunities are also limited. Management is always changing, so there is obviously much transition through out the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some stability at management level. Not much respect for employees who are not in brokerage. Not a good place to work
