    Pros

    Company has a good reputation

    Cons

    Employee growth and career development not a priority here.

    Advice to Management

    Company has become centralized to the point where local management has no authority. Allow management to manage their functional areas and monitor developments. Micromanaging of local offices by Home office undermines authority.

    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

    TL:DR

    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.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    Retire soon please

    Pros

    Good for the summer you are actually kept busy and assigned entities. You get to have responsibility and you actually feel like you're doing something.

    Cons

    Boring there after, don't really do much. The training before filling out the 5471s weren't that helpful either they could've been more helpful. The people could've been more willing to help too.
