    Pros

    Great experience and a way to get your feet wet in the retirement and health/benefits fields.

    Cons

    The "imrpovements" come from top down and middle management does a great job of pushing the disconnect from upper management to the front lines. Tools needed to complete the job are often works in progress themselves.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great hours. ok pay. Ok location. Great cafe. People seemed nice there. Bathrooms were nice. You get to dress casual.

    Cons

    Too quiet. Too boring. I didn't last long. I needed speed and momentum. The training class was a joke. I fell asleep countless times. Power point training ALL day on a projector screen. Need more hands on. They expect you to take a test after two weeks in a classroom of nothing but ridiculous PowerPoints and expect to know everything and how to do everything by then and if you don't pass you apparently get let go. Have someone more motivating for training classrooms at least to keep everyone awake. The quietness of the place is what got me. I like noise. I like movement. Fast pace. I was depressed seeing everyone boxed in cubicles all day looking miserable. Per the other reviews I'm glad I did not stay long as apparently it is difficult to move up the ladder work wise. If you like quiet and sitting at a desk all day this job is perfect for you.

    Advice to Management

    Need better training. Hands on. You're putting everyone to sleep with PowerPoints

    Pros

    Good salary and good people.

    Cons

    MMC MGTI is very interested in doing more with less. Teams are are typically very lean and salaried workers are expected to be be on call 24/7.

    Your people are your best asset. Start treating them as such.

    Pros

    Marsh offers great benefits. Good starting salary.

    Cons

    Raises are rarely given if ever. Staff is kept very lean, pressure to do more with less is a constant. Regional offices and Corporate results overweigh any accomplishments of small offices. ZonalRegional Heads either don't care about personnel or do not understand the business or workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your greatest asset, show them respect. Too many stress related health issues in this company, you better change the model.

    Pros

    Bonuses are usually pretty good.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Blame culture where many people spend most of their time avoiding work and thinking up ways to throw other people under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Retire soon please
