    Pros

    Despite everything, there are still some really great people to work with left in the company.
    Work/life balance is good, vacation times and so on are adequate.
    Recent management seems more disciplined than in the past.

    Cons

    No long-term strategy for anything - management by slogans.
    Top-level management is on up to par with what you would expect in a major corporation.
    Stagnation was an option before the Spitzer lawsuite - it is no longer, but management doesn't know how to do anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Get into details - do not just set theoretical goals, but figure out the plan of attack. Do it yourself - whoever you delegate it to will likely be too incompetent to do it well.


  2. "Good Entry Level Position"

    Pros

    MMC is a great place to get good quality commercial insurance brokerage experience. Experience at MMC (especially the Risk Analyst program if you're entry level) and a good personality should make you a viable candidate at any other insurance company or commercial insurance firm.

    Cons

    The downsides differ depending on what department you work for. The best income potential would come in the property and casualty departments. Sometimes people in these departments get a big head and can be a pain in the ass to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    The management at Marsh & McLennan can be a bit impersonal at times, as it's like any other commercial brokerage staunch corporate environment and everybody's looking after their own ass... on the other hand, there are some great managers. It all depends.
