    Pros

    Great opportunities to do technical work

    Cons

    No strategic direction and vision

    Advice to Management

    Keep the direction set from previous management and build on top of it, rather than reinventing the wheel

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. You are working for an industry leader. My managers were quality people.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Scrooges in New York looked over the numbers and decided that a large group needed to go to meet the "numbers." This seems to happen regularly at Marsh.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on stability and growth. You have great people, great brand and the opportunity to remain a leader. But, continued downsizing and changes in strategy are going to wear down the employees.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for if you're in the business of selling insurance.

    Cons

    If you work for one of the non-insurance related practices, you might feel like the red-headed step-child.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your opinions on gay, lesbian and transgender issues to yourselves.

    Pros

    Provided a valuable service to clients; worked among esteemed colleagues; gained valuable on-the-job experience

    Cons

    Poor communication from management to subordinates; no room for career advancement

    Advice to Management

    I would have suggested that communication is vital in moving things forward and that listening to input and ideas from employees can actually add value to the growth of an organization

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k, easy job, quarterly bonus if you meet your numbers. If you like a routine schedule and don't mind doing the same thing every day with little change, then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Monotonous, not very exciting. There is opportunity to advance to team lead and supervisor positions and to other departments within the Austin area but if you want to move into broker positions or other avenues of insurance you'll have to be willing to move.

    Advice to Management

    Give more of an incentive to do well and work harder, outside of a quarterly bonus. Have group outings and fun team building activities outside of work. This is a multibillion dollar company, you can probably afford to pay this department a little bit more.

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Lots of networking opportunities - I think it is still true that at the top levels we have some of the best minds in the business.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring. Communication between levels not always transparent. Very little thought given to providing any sort of work/life balance to employees. 24/7 expected. Even in 2013, with smartphones and a paperless environment, they require you to live in a major city in order to have any advancement opportunities. Smart people live in places other than Manhattan.

    Advice to Management

    Stop applying the one size fits all approach across industries and geographies.

    Pros

    Generous time off (can choose 3x12, 4x10, or 5x8 work schedule). Good pay.

    Cons

    Boring, repetitive work. Frustrating bureaucracy. No path for upward mobility. No training.

    Advice to Management

    Management would neither solicit nor heed advice.

    Pros

    Marsh McLennan was very welcoming when I started. I was excited to get benefits after 30 days. The people were nice and the Austin office is cool.

    Cons

    After 2 weeks of in class training, they give a test. I scored very close to the passing grade but they let me go. No wonder they are always looking for people. High turnover is what I gathered when I was working there. The pay is not good at all for the amount of stress.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems really nice. I think the Certificate Specialist tests should be a bit easier. The actual cases are less hard than the actual tests given.
