Former Employee - Data Analyst in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Willis full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent tools available for servicing your clients needs. Team oriented and solutions driven.

Cons

Large broker. Unnecessary fees for small clients. Difficult to cater/service non-standard clients due to company standards and regulations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be flexible to allow better servicing of large and non-standard clients. Example - Having to use the certificate center to process COI's doesn't always make sense for every client. It can be more efficient to use the account service team to process the certs.

    Competitive salary doesn't make up for micromanaging and lack of training

    I have been working at Willis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Competitive salary
    -Some flexibility in schedule worked
    -Good name to have on your resume

    Cons

    -No training or mentorship whatsoever. They are very dismissive when you express interest in further training
    -'Big brother' is in full effect here. Micromanaging your comings and goings, reading your emails, monitoring your instant messages.
    -Terrible and expensive benefits
    -Extremely conservative environment (dress code, etc.)
    -Those promoted to management rolls have little to no experience managing others and it's evident.
    -No team environment between producers and service staff. 'Us against them' mentality. You are disregarded if you're not selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Invest and show some interest in training and developing new employees. The 'on-boarding' process is a mess and it goes downhill from there.
    -Spend less time micromanaging and more time on developing trust and good working relationships with employees
    -Promote a team approach
    -Management structure changed 3 times in 3 months; doesn't send a message of stability to your employees

    I worked at Willis full-time

    Pros

    Wide variety of projects with diverse clients
    Good group of people
    Large company with well-known name

    Cons

    Pay is ridiculously low
    Terrible benefits
    CEO can't seem to stop looking at himself (he puts his picture everywhere)
    CEO doesn't seem to be taking the company in the correct direction - business seems to come solely from being able to undercut the competition's price

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain top talent with better pay and benefits.
