    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    "OK to get your foot in the door of the insurance business but not to stay long term"

    Pros

    - Pay is OK
    - Work isn't too difficult

    Cons

    - Some of the managers are absolutely terrible and will micro-manage you every step of the way. If you get a good manager then it's not too bad. My manager watched every move you made to the point you were afraid to get up to take a break. About 6 of us quit in a period of 2 months because he was basically harassing us and upper management did absolutely nothing about it as the employees on the team dwindled down to nothing, so that way the ones that remained were completely stressed and overworked. There are at least 1-2 other managers like this but if you have a good manager then this job isn't bad to get your foot in the door of the insurance business.

    Pros

    Employees make it tolerable to go to work. They are the only positive.

    Cons

    Promises are never fulfilled. They try to sell you this place as one of the best places to work at, it is all lies. You are over worked under paid and not appreciated. Management only cares about themselves and will try to make you cover up their faults.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more, and stop trying to cover up corporate will know the truth when they decide to look.

    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.

    Pros

    Semi-flexible hours and accommodating with time off requests.

    Cons

    Tasks that you are given are well beyond the insurance specialist role and more like the associate vice president and vice president role. Compensation does not equate to the work that is required. Old school management. Raises are almost foreign.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees or they will continue to leave in droves.
