    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have a great culture. Open door policy, colleagues are supportive of one another, great teamwork, caring supervisor. We have great benefits, generous vacation, can work from home one day per week; we get a day off for our annual trip to Myrtle beach for a three day week end. Our clients love the work we do; there is room for advancement; good work life balance; insurance is a great career. Whenever I have been laid off I never had a hard time finding a job. I plan to retire from this company

    Cons

    open enrollment season/4th Q in employee health benefits can be very stressful and busy. some OT is needed to get all the work done

    Advice to Management

    Have PTO rather than vacation and sick days. Combine them. Allow working from home two days per week rather than one. budget for turnover; have a floater who knows several jobs who can fill in for the maternity leaves; sick leaves , turnover that is going to occur without a doubt each year

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time

    Pros

    Great people and overall culture. They offer a ton of flexibility and a great work/life balance. The employees are treated like adults and trusted to get their jobs done without someone micromanaging them. Senior leadership team in Boston is incredibly down to earth and very approachable.

    Cons

    Due to certain technologies coming from the corporate office (laptops and cell phones for example) it can cause a delay in start dates for new hires. Leadership at the corporate level needs to take a look at a better way to provide the various regions with the technologies needed to hire someone in a quicker manner.

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

    Pros

    Good for entry level benefit folks looking to get a foot in the broker/consulting door. Casual dress environment.

    Cons

    Expect to work very long hours for little to no bonuses for the account staff. Management is not flexible with work from home. Monotonous, lack of creativity, producers/ex-owners very self-centered and focused on themselves. Little to no room for growth or advancement. Training is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating all levels of employees as equals. Increase pay, offer flexible work arrangements, training programs, selling incentives to account staff, advancement opportunities and clear guidlines on how to achieve each step in career goal.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leadership is their strongest point - they simply "get it." They seem to have visionaries that are looking beyond day to day issues and more so toward the bigger picture. They also ask and legitimately care what each and every one of us as employees think about decisions regarding the organization and are constantly asked for input and new ideas.

    Cons

    If you are looking for just another job, then this place isn't for you. We are expected to wear multiple hats and be an ultimate contributor to the company's success far beyond what is included on a job description. Don't expect for big and unreasonable salary $$'s to be thrown at you in comparison to many others across the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to explore the talents of your internal colleagues while taking risks on others from the outside. The diversity of personalities is what makes the organization unique.

    Pros

    Management is at least trying to be forward thinking in an aging industry.

    Cons

    Lots of Initial Promises of Growth

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Talent Retention, and perhaps on why you keep losing people, instead of perpetually hiring more people.
