    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Its a good company. Top in its field. Upper management knows to be profitable it has to retain its people. They do this by giving competitive salaries and good employee benefits. Periodically they send surveys to better understand the morale of the employees but also to see if there is anything they should add or change in the benefits to the employees. They care and they show it.

    Cons

    Due to restructuring in the department there was no work/life balance. Long hours were required with little or no compensation for them.

    Advice to Management

    Finish the restructuring soon or you will lose good people that just can't or don't want to do that kind of overtime. It's the nature of the business to do some overtime, but when you get to the point where you don't see your family for long stretches of time then its too much.
