    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    nice people who want to do the right thing always

    Cons

    convoluted processes and procedures which alone account for a significant chunk of the costs and time associated with any initiative. All of this results in IT teams not being efficient or nimble to react to changing business needs and making it very difficult to quickly align to corporate strategies

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and drop the walls between opcos esp. IT

    Former Employee - IT Project Manager 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generous vacation and work from home policy.

    Cons

    Expect to work very long hours and weekends and sacrifice all personal/family time for this company. 80-90 hours is the normal range and overnight hours were very common. I worked on a project that lasted two years and we worked every weekend. Management and executive leadership did nothing to compensate any team member and barely even noticed the commitment it's IT team made to firm initiatives. This resulted... in high turnover and low morale.

    Advice to Management

    If I could give you zero stars I would. Respect your employees and provide a work/life balance. No one can work 24 hours a day/7 days a week and you certainly don't compensate for it.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team environment and decent vacation.

    Cons

    If you work for Marketlink, expect to work 40+ hours per week and weekends to meet expectations. Because it is a newer platform within the Marsh brand, processes and procedures are very disjointed and unorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Realistically consider the time involved to perform a never ending list of "core job requirements". Or, be upfront and set the expectation with employees that to be successful requires 50+ hours per week.
