    Disappointed. Talent Acquisition team doesn't interact with staff so they really don't know what talent is in house.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice cafeteria, some very nice staff members who seem to be in a rut since there is no career advancement.

    Cons

    Talent Acquisition team or what other worlds might call HR do not interact with staff and when you engage them regarding your career aspirations or looking for another opportunity to work somewhere else with the organization they are a bunch of robots and tell you to look at the website. There is no interaction with people via verbal communications with this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing. Interaction with employees and temps. Engaging your staff with human contact would be nice. Talent Acquisition Team needs to be overhauled, they don't follow thru at all.

    Very large company with great benefits. Top insurance brokerage firm.

    Many changes going on within the company.

    If you are in sales you are valued! If not, the promotions and raises are minimum for the other roles.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Accumulated a decent amount of time off. Could switch shifts if you needed to and colleagues were willing. Lots of support during training. Could pick up overtime for extra pay, offered 401k.

    Cons

    Just about very move I made was being watched, every phone call listened to. Too much pressure put on employees. Phone reviews were often ridiculous. For example, I would be given points off for not saying a clients name three times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put so much pressure on employees answering the phones and say how much time they can be given to answer a question, all while having to remember little things like repeating a clients name or how long they can put someone on hold. I am sure the client on the phone would much rather an employee take their time and get the correct information by waiting a little longer than having their representative worry about minor details such as their name being repeated or waiting on hold longer than a minute. Management should also be more available and open to employee questions when employees need guidance on the phones.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large company with great benefits. The holiday schedule is great. The amount of vacation, sick and floating holidays is great.

    Cons

    Management stinks. Working for a large company leaves some of us falling through the cracks.
    The company advocates transparency but there are things going on the department I work in that if higher ups were to find out they would probably blow a gasket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to who you hire and what they bring to the table. If all they bring is drama and problems perhaps you shouldn't hire them. Someone with some college or a college degree should only be considered for this job.
