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

Pros

Largest broker in the world. Segmented groups allow for greater focus and expertise. The majority of employees have positive attitudes and enjoy what they do. Numerous employees that left the firm have come back proving that the grass isn't always greener.

Cons

Corporate structure can be slow at times. Not necessarily a con, but you will need to be patient to see large pay increase.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at Marsh within an IT leadership position and found it very rewarding to be a part of a team that wanted to make a difference. The people and senior leaders at Marsh are very organized and genuinely care about the internal and external impacts of decisions made. Huge opportunity for growth within a large corporation.

    Cons

    Analysis Paralysis. The teams need to get out of their own way so tasks can get finished. Death by meeting also marred the experience a bit. Process perfection was touted even at the expense of project completion which is not good.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need to step aside and let your leaders lead. Micromanagement does not have a place when there is so much work to be done.

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

    Pros

    Upbeat, professional environment. Leadership tends to let middle management run the show. Charitable focus. Competitive salary.

    Cons

    Senior management can lose focus, allowing for some bad decisions to be made at the operational level. Commitment to employees, teamwork and winning seems to have been lost within MMA.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to doing the things that worked in the past. Such as incenting employees at all levels, encouraging employees and teamwork, and guiding middle management.
