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

Pros

Benefits were good. Lots of networking opportunities - I think it is still true that at the top levels we have some of the best minds in the business.

Cons

Constant restructuring. Communication between levels not always transparent. Very little thought given to providing any sort of work/life balance to employees. 24/7 expected. Even in 2013, with smartphones and a paperless environment, they require you to live in a major city in order to have any advancement opportunities. Smart people live in places other than Manhattan.

Advice to Management

Stop applying the one size fits all approach across industries and geographies.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    zero expectations or account ability for mistakes, I never saw anyone penalized for making a mistake there, but people were continually criticized for doing their jobs

    Cons

    culture of fear and belittling, the angriest management team I've ever seen, much more interested in scoring points off of each other, than in contributing to the business

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to grow your career. Good people to work with. Flexible company and good benefits.

    Cons

    We do not have adequate technology to perform our jobs. Constantly changing things - consolidating, moving departments, outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing just to change.
