I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time

Pros

Good work/life balance. Decent benefits. Good office location.

Cons

This company fails to tell you when they hire you that they have "frozen" raises for the past 5 years. They mislead you by saying that annual raises are given, when that is not the case. Nobody except for senior management gets a raise at this company, and they are handsomely paid. The company's excuse is the economic situation yet the company is doing very well financially. Upward mobility is hard to achieve, and you need to be extremely political and internally connected in order to move up. This company remains an old boys club and the few women that do get to senior leadership positions are even worse then the men. Employee morale is extremely low. Everyone is exasperated about the "raise freeze" and the apparent hiring freeze on much-needed administrative assistants.

Advice to Management

Give your employees raises and make them feel valued rather than disposable. Put people who actually know how to "manage" in managerial positions.

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

    Pros

    The managing directors and SVP are very thorough in what they know. They believe in their team of employees.

    Cons

    You should tell people when you are hiring them as an consultant vs. full time employee.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time having belief in your employees. This firm could do so much better in their marketing efforts if they knew how to market ideas to their employees instead thinking of them as second rate citizens.
