    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time

    Pros

    Working at MMC has allowed me to stretch my wings and grow my career. I have moved through the company into so many different roles. Additionally, I have made life long friends and colleagues here.

    Cons

    Technology infrastructure is really dated and limits opportunities for business growth.

    Pros

    90% of the coworkers are fantastic and supportive

    Cons

    Management told me I was too old to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really think I need to say more. If you're over the age of 40 and get in the door expecting to be rewarded for hard work, forget about it. They may let you clean the kitchen as an added job task...Management doesn't understand employment laws and they dote on their favorites (who are generally young): exclaiming excitement when hiring new people: "she's young and ..." oops was that a Freudian slip? Career Opportunities if you're 20 something: the sky is the limit! over a certain age: unless you want to serve as their maid, don't bother.

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

    Pros

    Great people (for the most part), lots of divisions to work in, good benefits.

    Cons

    I've consistently received good reviews the last 5 years and each year they've refused to give me a raise "because the company didn't meet its budget". I haven't even received a standard of living increase .I'm basically making less than when I started, and I'm currently looking for a job after 7 years there. I'd hate to leave, but I know I"m underpaid. There's been a lot of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Marsh needs to compensate it's employees fairly, period.

    The worklife balance is amazing with this company. Granted you will always have the instances where things need to get done however, they truly do understand that life happens.

    The ability to work remotely also has it's advantages.

    The pay at times in that compatible to what other organizations in the same industry are offering.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of the talent you have internally and allow them to grow.
