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

Pros

Great benefits, awesome health plan, smart, fun co-workers, many opportunities to learn subject matter very well

Cons

Value external candidates over internal candidates, everyone is overworked and stressed, you can only get the salary for your peer-group if you threaten to leave, poor performers are not fired, just starved out.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to 100% de-risk your business. It sends a message to clients that you aren't willing to stand by your work and puts you in a vulnerable position. Clients will start to think "Gee, if I am constantly being told I have to check my broker's work, why shouldn't an online quote service do this same thing?? I thought I was paying for expertise??"

Stop burning out your best people, they are the product you are selling.

Give some actual power to give promotions, make compensation decisions, and fire people etc. to office heads, zone leaders, or even managers. Its very clear their hands are 100% tied to do right by their best people.

    Pros

    Nothing was good, except compensating time when working oncall

    Cons

    Horrible hours, worked you like a slave driver, niche jobs (no moving up from within) and bad pay

    Advice to Management

    Could have had better compensations/pay and lay off the fear based management

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

    Pros

    There are no positive things to say about working here!

    Cons

    No raises, focused more on rewarding management than those actually doing the work

    Advice to Management

    You need to realize who is actually doing the work and stop rewarding those who aren't!
