      Not Worth the Jump to MMC...

      Aug 11, 2008 - Assistant Vice President in Boston, MA

      Pros

      Work/Life Balance is good. The local office in Boston had some of the best people to work with, both intelligent and professional, but always stayed grounded.

      Cons

      Although locally the communication was decent, senior management in the NY headquarters was not in touch with the employees that actually dealt with vendors and the high expectations of clients. In the worst of times, the best we got was a series of buzz words, and MBA/Executive level cliche phrases that meant nothing. Completely out of touch with what was going on locally. Could not keep a hold of young talent.

      Not the best company for minorities and working mothers!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It is the flagship company of MMC - the parent company. Aside from that, can't think of any other reason why I would want to work for the company. Some of the people that work there are nice, but it would be better if the company were more diversified and structured

      Cons

      The company is not very accepting of minorities, particularly blacks. The ration is something like 1:50. Very hard to find a lot of minorities in office positions. Also not very accepting or considerate of working mothers. You create your own career advancement. There is no structure surrounding that. The company o is also going through a lot of senior management changes and organizational changes. You have to be a fast learner and find your way around issues. A lot of help is not given to help you to understand how the company works. Very individualized, an every man for himself spirit exists there. You also have to know the right people to get promoted.

      Benefit from our "Upside"!

      Pros

      Interesting time to work for MMC. You could be at the beginning of something great, or at the end of something great. I truly hope that we are in the midst of a turnaround.

      Cons

      Uncertainty of future due to inept management. I'm constantly being reminded of the "good old days" at MMC. I'm ready for the new " good old days". I hope that we can expect some senior management to stay beyond their appointment date. There has been a series of people that have worked at MMC less than 6 months, but managed to take with them a hefty retirement package. For absolutely no benefit to the company. They got their positions becuse of who they knew, they cashed in, now they're gone.

      A great place to work so long as you sell, but don't expect a lot of support developing other skills.

      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.

      Pros

      Great people, comprehensive benefits package, pension plan, decent vacation and personal days allowance, nice cafeteria

      Cons

      Senior management in the group was very overpaid for their skill level and ability to manage. Luckily, most of the dead weight in the upper ranks was let go shortly after I left. I hear positive things from colleagues who are still there.
