    Pros

    Structured and developed company, seeking individuals
    that are willing to learn and grow with the company. They place no limitations on how far you can go, it’s actually encouraged. I’m excited.

    Cons

    Being a newcomer, I’m confident and nervous about exceeding expectations... I just want to excel in my new position. Don’t know if any cons as of yet, but I know there is some mandatory overtime, which can be a good thing, when you’re new to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to be involved, and states “ open door policy” to discuss any concerns you may have.

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

    Pros

    Benefits package is "alright", paid vacation is solid, many holidays

    Cons

    No appreciation for employees, no upward mobility in a tired traditional corporate environment, ancient tech standards, not moving with the times, zero wage growth year after year

    Advice to Management

    Get people in IT that understand technology, your MBA degrees mean nothing to folks who could run circles around your tech skills. Give raises to folks who spend years at your company, and lose money to inflation if they are given no raises. The cost of living does not pause for your lack of fairness
