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

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Client Representative in Milwaukee, WI
    Former Employee - Client Representative in Milwaukee, WI

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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