    I have been working at JLT Group for more than 3 years

    Pros

    work life balance. good salary

    Cons

    poor management. no futuristic planning. no career path defined

    Advice to Management

    Management should normalize the hierarchy. there is no proper policy for promotion and career path. promotions are given based on the dependency not based on the talent.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at JLT Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have previous relationships with upper management, then be confident you will be paid very handsomely. For others that do not, you will have to fight just to stay moderately competitive in the market. Or, if you are so bold to threaten your departure or play teacher's pet, perhaps that will provide you an increase (at your own risk).

    Cons

    Very poor work-life balance for some who want to excel at their job - be highly careful of exhausting politics. Great deal of change occurring in the workplace that neither is transparent in their motives, not organized, and leaves everyone who has no pre-existing relationship with upper management in total free fall. Nepotism, politics, terrible combination of strong personalities to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Friends aren't necessarily the best employees - especially when you remove valuable and low-ranking individuals just to retain the ridiculously high salaries promised from luring executive-friends from other companies.

    I worked at JLT Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. CEO, is the only driving force sustaining the organization. A absolute role-model for people who want to learn to move up the ladder 2. Good facilities provided to employees 3. Good work-life balance

    Cons

    1. No long term career 2. Unfriendly Employee policies (notice period, recovery of all travel,accommodation,flight, training costs if a employee wants to leave within a yr of travel) 3. Excessive 'Management' layers that has little or no worthwhile contribution

    Advice to Management

    Be a process oriented company rather than people-dependent. Revisit relieving policies (practice what you preach, know an employee who has decided to leave just creates a greater mess if forced to work (in an off-shoring company), make people not want to leave due to the culture rather than enforcing a absurd mandate, Employees are asked to travel for the benefit of the company and not for a 'employee requested... leisure' trip so asking for a full cost refund is absurd, Stop threatening people with legal action which in any case is not sustainable in Indian court of law )
