The worklife balance is amazing with this company. Granted you will always have the instances where things need to get done however, they truly do understand that life happens.

The ability to work remotely also has it's advantages.

Cons

The pay at times in that compatible to what other organizations in the same industry are offering.

Advice to Management

Be mindful of the talent you have internally and allow them to grow.

    Pros

    - Pay is OK
    - Work isn't too difficult

    Cons

    - Some of the managers are absolutely terrible and will micro-manage you every step of the way. If you get a good manager then it's not too bad. My manager watched every move you made to the point you were afraid to get up to take a break. About 6 of us quit in a period of 2 months because he was basically harassing us and upper management did absolutely nothing about it as the employees on the team dwindled down to nothing, so that way the ones that remained were completely stressed and overworked. There are at least 1-2 other managers like this but if you have a good manager then this job isn't bad to get your foot in the door of the insurance business.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can’t think of one pro except it being a paycheck.

    Cons

    Toxic culture rampant in one large group in Chicago, as described see another person’s post from 12/12. Two managers drove out almost two entire teams with their micromanagement, intimidation, gaslighting and harassment, while upper management and HR stood idly by. Against all logic, said managers are still employed. Who would want to work in this stressful environment? Who wants to go to work in fear every day?

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that can check egos at door. Get rid of bullies.
