    One of the great international companies to work for with it's best asset being its intellectual capital.

    Operations Specialist (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsYou are working with true professionals who teach by example and are the leaders in industry knowledge and service.

    ConsDue to the rapid and constant change in senior leadership in NY Corp Office, there was constant upheaval and reduction in force that was very distracting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to the values of the original MMC before the impact of 2001, Eliot Spitzer (2004) and the constant revolving door of senior leadership. The core of MMC is its employees and its strength.

    Very poor, no integrity, management stealing the family silver

    MGTI (Former Employee) Hoboken, NJ

    ProsA paycheck (but not very big...all the money goes to the top and to the shareholders)

    ConsNo mobility, Leadership Team croneyism (they regularly lie for each other and circle the wagons if threatened by the outcomes of their own incompetence), no respect for NLD (next Level Down). The firm's codes of conduct (Greater Good) are routinely trampled.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the MGTI Leadership Team before they destroy the franchise

    Call Center (Former Employee) Norwood, MA

    ProsNONE absolutely none whatsoever at this company

    ConsRude management, favoritism, condescending employees and managers, long hours, not enough compensation for what is being done-horrible company horrible people, horrible horrible horrible-ANYWHERE is better than MMC

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that people are not know it-alls-and that they dont' like to be condescneded and told that they are doing EVERYTHING wrong!!! give a little credit where credit is due and don't be so critical of EVERYTHING-they are trying their best

    Intense learning experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAbility to learn quickly and also move up the ladder quickly by putting in the right effort and attitude.

    ConsCompensation did not match effort, atleast during initial years, and probably only for the country I worked in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAim for consistency of policies, procedures and work style across all branches.

    A great learning experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou are exposed to a lot of intelligent people and high level risk management clients. You can learn a lot from the people around you and there are plenty of opportunities for growth. The company culture is positive and management seems to truly care about the employees.

    ConsYou can be expected to work long hours at times.

    NO RAISES AT THIS COMPANY FOR YEARS. Very little upward mobility. Low employee morale.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood work/life balance. Decent benefits. Good office location.

    ConsThis company fails to tell you when they hire you that they have "frozen" raises for the past 5 years. They mislead you by saying that annual raises are given, when that is not the case. Nobody except for senior management gets a raise at this company, and they are handsomely paid. The company's excuse is the economic situation yet the company is doing very well financially. Upward mobility is hard to achieve, and you need to be extremely political and internally connected in order to move up. This company remains an old boys club and the few women that do get to senior leadership positions are even worse then the men. Employee morale is extremely low. Everyone is exasperated about the "raise freeze" and the apparent hiring freeze on much-needed administrative assistants.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your employees raises and make them feel valued rather than disposable. Put people who actually know how to "manage" in managerial positions.

    Very political

    Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe managing directors and SVP are very thorough in what they know. They believe in their team of employees.

    ConsYou should tell people when you are hiring them as an consultant vs. full time employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time having belief in your employees. This firm could do so much better in their marketing efforts if they knew how to market ideas to their employees instead thinking of them as second rate citizens.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
