    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Terrific colleagues in AM, PA and IT departments.

    Cons

    Happiness of the Plan Analyst depends on happiness of the Account Director or as they're now called, VPs. That dependence on how ADs interpret the quality of work from the PA is not psychologically healthy. Furthermore, at least at the Troy, MI location, they propagate a culture of backstabbing and snitching. Corporate literally encourages ADs to keep track of every single thing that PAs do wrong and then promptly report it to the management, who then writes up a PA. Simultaneously, all the things that the a PA does right, are ignored. It is the norm for ADs to request last second changes on the client presentations and that will more often than not lead to a PA making a mistake. When a PA brings this up to the management, the management will just simply brush it off and say, "this is normal and happens all the time and you are still responsible for accuracy". Words cannot begin to express the backwards mentality of such a statement. Recently this organization has a mass exodus of employees and while they say they are going to look inwards, I doubt they'll find anything wrong. The adult defensive way is always going to be to double down on bad decisions. I doubt they will start encouraging ADs to abstain from asking for last second changes, I doubt they will get rid of the flawed PA review system that encourages snitching your own teammate! It is abundantly clear to me, that this approach creates distrust, dislike and paranoia. I would not advice anyone to go and work there as a PA or an AM. They have Prima Donna salesmen and women and management has a 100% bias in bending over backwards to keep them happy. Very disappointed in my stay at MMA-MI.
