Pros

Decent benefits comparable with market place.

Cons

Very political environment
Senior mgmt in region is incompetent
Finger pointing is the name of the game although at the surface people try to be nice, but there is a lot of back stabbing and layig of blames. The buck does not stop at who's accountable as they would like to sell
Zero transparency mgmt style
Do not believe in staff and staff development and retention.Prefers to look outside rather then develop internally
Very underhanded in managing people
Fire fighting mode at all times because managment is very shortsighted in what needs to be done to resolve issues in the long term.
Senior mgmt expects to know everytime u sneeze. Micro mgmt and Mgmt likes to mangage all the way down to the lowest level resulting in constant firefighting or daily incidents, but conveniently ignore the larger picture for long term sustainability
All lot of talk, but dont believe them cos they chage everyday
The IT organisation needs to deperate overhaul of its senior mgmt if they ever want to be successful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not micro manage

    Pros

    Marsh & McLennann has provided some great opportunities to work with some very experienced brokers. MMC Clients are very interesting.

    Cons

    Management lack of recognition that staff are performing. There are some really great employees but the lack of recognition has a negative effect on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management to actually interact and talk to staff about concerns. Management to action the concerns of employees versus saying we have listened to your concerns and nothing evolves.

    Pros

    -There are many very intelligent people that you can learn a lot from.
    - Lots of resources and different positions/roles available (if your willing to move around).
    - Interesting clients to work for.

    Cons

    -a few complete idiots in senior level positions and I have no idea how they have stuck around.
    -Insurance
    - Everything is about growth, if you want to be successful you need to be able to sell. Servicing employees are not valued as much as they once were. In fairness, it is a strong company which makes selling a good opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new sales focus is quickly killing the collaboration at this company.
