    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of PTO, good salary (except raises) no micro management, great teamwork and nice office.

    Cons

    My position was "eliminated". In reality it went to India. Job is paperless so the only thing the company was looking to do was save a few bucks in wages. A company with 14+ billion revenue would rather have cheap labor than keep good loyal employees. I have seen so many good employees laid off. I was hoping to retire from Marsh in a few years. Now I am looking for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees for what they know and not how cheap they can be paid. The end result will be clients will go elsewhere costing the company more.

    Pros

    Met plenty of hardworking, decent people. Unfortunately, they are not appreciated.

    Cons

    Unhappy place to work. Mobbing and bullying is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and show your appreciation once in a while. Overhaul management.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is a great place to work. Fantastic benefits and a great work-life balance. Smart people and not too political. Tons of vacation time and separate sick days makes it very accommodating. Subsidized cafeteria makes lunch cheap, and in-building gym is super convenient. Super stable environment and company. Great for someone not looking for a crazy lifestyle.

    Cons

    I didn't find any cons, except for the slow pace - at times it can be inert. Bonuses didn't increase, nor did salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Help create more projects for everyone to keep people busy. Give them real goals. And deadlines. Create more cross-department interaction and training programs - anything to bring more visibility between departments.

    Pros

    Complex work experience with large fortune 100 clients

    Cons

    Pay and performance metric controllability

    Advice to Management

    Use a true balance scorecard approach that is actually tied to performance level of the employee and adjust pay when they are successful.

    Employees are asked to do more and more, for the same salary.

    Pros

    The starting pay for individuals without any experience in a brokerage firm is competitive.

    Cons

    They DO NOT offer annual raises or cost of living adjustments, despite what they say in the interview process. It is extremely difficult to advance and they, again despite what they claim, DO NOT value education or pay more for higher education.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to unite. There is a "us versus them" attitude between the client advisers (sales) and the operations community. The sales side receives bonuses, raises, and a higher base pay, whereas the operations side is told that they are lucky to have a position and do not merit additional pay.
