I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies

Pros

Great quality of coworkers.Good teamwork and camaraderie among peers. Nice working environment with an easy commute. It's in Iowa.

Cons

Revolving door of senior executives. For example, at least 6 different CEO s in 10 years making it impossible to chart a strategic course then sail there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more inclusive and really look around you at the talent available. You're missing it by not involving capable people in our leadership team.

    Compensate employees fairly and accordingly compared to competition.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package, relaxed office environment, interesting colleagues. Local roles are limited but there are many opportunities to advance or move around in the company if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    It is really up to the individual to push the envelope and get noticed in order to be given the opportunity to grow. The tools are available but a lot of personal effort is required in order to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage colleagues to become involved. When hiring new colleagues, highlight the growth opportunities that are available and be sure to state plainly that most opportunities for advancement outside of supervisor/manager roles will require relocation. Figure out how to reduce the high turnover.
