    Fantastic potential squashed by politics and an environment that reeks of fear.

    I worked at Trion Group, a Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many of the people at the company are absolutely wonderful to interact with.

    The hours are very flexible, including the opportunity to work from home on a regular basis.

    There's always free food around (usually snacks and such).

    Employees get a lot of PTO.

    The holiday party at the end of the year is a blast.

    Cons

    Management is often conflicted, creating a constant flow of misdirection.

    Management often pushes all responsibility for mistakes onto those on the floor (in most cases the Tech Analyst).

    Management is quick to discipline employees without any provision of extra help or coaching. In other words, it's a sink or swim culture.

    Many team members constantly throw each other "under the bus" to avoid the previously mentioned discipline. In other words, most employees are working out of a place of fear.

    Little to no praise is given to employees for doing well.

    There's very little job specific training, or support for that matter. Most employees are left to fend for themselves.

    Expectations during the "busy season" are unrealistic. Expect to put life on hold from September through February, meaning expect to be working around the clock most of that time. Expect to be dinged for making mistakes or missing deadlines even when you are working around the clock.

    No bonuses are offered, even after enduring a lengthy busy season as previously described.

    The Tech Analyst turnover is quite high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It all comes down to how you treat your employees. Show them that you actually care by building them up, training them well, praising them, and showing them empathy. People are loyal when they feel valued, and loyalty equals talent retention and dedication. You've got a culture based on fear at the moment, and it kills morale. Until that's fixed, it's likely that the busy season will always be a mess and that experienced workers will continue to leave the company.

    The end of the year is a crazy time.

    Pros

    Nice people, nice office. They sometimes have fun little events. Very flexible hours, including a generous work from home policy. It's rapidly growing and is still able to maintain the perks of being a small company even though it's technically under Marsh & McLennan. You get a PTO day for your birthday, eight hours of PTO to use over the summer, and eight hours of PTO to use as volunteer time along with a decent vacation package. There's a decent holiday party at the end of the year. There's lots of random free food.

    Cons

    People are incredibly stressed in the busy season at the end of the year. During this time, the workload far exceeds the amount of resources and employees. It's not unusual to have work assigned to you at 3 pm that has an end of day deadline because the person who was supposed to complete it is too busy. New hires who start during this time are thrown in with little to no training and are expected to complete tasks with strict deadlines. Senior employees are often unavailable to help new hires and answer questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great culture! The fun events are great and make the employees feel appreciated. Devise a strategy to better manage the busy season workload.

    Incompetence of management to plan projects.

    Don't set employees up for failure by having unrealistic plans. Provide career development for your employees and provide feedback in a timely fashion.

    I worked at Trion Group, a Marsh & McLennan Agency

    Pros

    Loved my boss, co-workers. Overall they make you feel welcome, lots of events and that sort of thing. The work was as I expected and communication with my direct supervisor was very good.

    Cons

    Disconnect between departments and different branches of the company. A lot of pressure during certain seasons of the year, and a lot of bending to meet client requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall keep going as you were. I was pleased with my time at Trion and would have stayed had my personal life stayed the same.
