    Pros

    nice people who want to do the right thing always

    Cons

    convoluted processes and procedures which alone account for a significant chunk of the costs and time associated with any initiative. All of this results in IT teams not being efficient or nimble to react to changing business needs and making it very difficult to quickly align to corporate strategies

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and drop the walls between opcos esp. IT

    Great people and challenging work
    Excellent benefits and perks

    Cons

    Too many organizational changes

    Multiple redundant efforts
    Some lines of business seem to be more successful than others

    Advice to Management

    Action speak louder than words. When you say employees are important then show it by sincere action. Distributed teams makes it hard to stand out in front of leadership.

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity for challenging work to grow your skills and make a contribution with high impact to the firm. Very professional work environment. Good career mobility with many different operating companies under the MMC brand. Good benefits with flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    Big complex organization can take a lot of time to assimilate and become known. Base salary growth barely keeps up with inflation. High workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate investment in technology and process improvements.

    Pros

    Work from home is common and allowed, opportunities for exposure exist but you do have to pursue yourself, great benefits, senior management have regular skip-level meetings and take feedback to heart

    Cons

    When they say your career is in your hands, they really mean it. There is NO help in advancement or mentoring or learning.

    Advice to Management

    This company has very long tenure employees, so the loyalty is there. You need to cultivate the ambition in eager employees because they are leaving to find it elsewhere and you are left with the long-term, lazy, coasting people that don't learn new skills.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good large company environment, with good structure.
    The technology is up to date, you can work remote and can get done all in short time.
    People are there mostly for many years and they know what they're doing.
    I love the large cafeteria, free large parking lots, beautiful walk around areas where people use to go out at lunch and walk. They have great volunteering options and networking, support groups.
    Great benefits, very difficult to match anywhere else.
    People that I work with are very talented at what they do and I learnt a lot from them. They are

    Cons

    Very little opportunities to grow. Once you get to certain senior level, it's getting more and more difficult to move around. People are there for a very long time and they are not moving anywhere.
