    Pros

    Positive team members Good Benefits Trying hard to keep the local feel of a hometown agency

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, all markets aren't meant to be treated the same. Don't assume that just because you have a big name that people really know who you are and beat a path to your door.

    Some talented and caring leaders. Excellent benefits with extensive technology platform for employees that enable access to information and benefits..

    IT department is not always responsive. They need a better IT request tracking process to make improvements in response. Security corrupted some files that could not be restored.

    Improve inter-department and inter-company cooperation to improve responsiveness to requests and resolution of issues.

    Pros

    Stability, opportunities, some promotion from within, multiple locations, various roles, global, broad benefits and pension, 401k, various leaves. Multiple companies make up MMC. Stock is on the rebound

    Cons

    little bit of a boys club. benefits are expensive. clickish. need to have more diversity in senior roles. Very few women in top tier as well as minorities. Suffers from identity issues within corporate unit.

    listen to your people. Include them in decisions. Communicate down to lower levels. increase movement between companies

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending which OpCo you work in there is good work life balance and laid back culture.

    Cons

    I have been consistently told the pay is not up to market and there are always budget cuts effecting salaries, work load and hiring freezes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your colleagues so they stay and pass along their work experience and build upon it.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the company was a good company with a positive reputation. They hired good, hard-working people who are goal-oriented.

    Cons

    I don't think all of management appreciated their employees fully. They seem to go through a period of laying off people every year, which questions why they hire additional people in the first place. Usually, it's due to budget cuts and not job performance.

    Pros

    Smart people. Creative minds. Excellent project management. Well developed marketing strategy. Supportive of significant research. A high degree of mutual professional respect

    Cons

    Lots of snob-oriented status activities. A strong bias toward individuals' schooling, even after 30 years after graduation. Heaven help you if your creative idea is not considered to be a top priority. There is a great deal of politics and cronyism at senior levels, often undermining meaningful relationships and priorities.
