    Pros

    To get the basis fundamentals of insurance and risk managment.

    Cons

    Moral is low, upper management cuts expenses (ie cheaper office supplies, holiday potlucks) but the higher level positions are still allowed to spend enormous amounts of money for traveling. People are promoted not based on merit or hard work but instead of how connected you are in the company. Too many politics and egos that trickles down to the cr's who are left with all the work.

    Advice to Management

    I would say hire more innovative fresh minds that challenge the normal functions.

    Pros

    some good talent still there.....not for long though

    Cons

    way to many to list

    Advice to Management

    back to the drawing board....might want to pay closer attention to keeping colleagues who actually create revenue on the team. Middle Management and tenuered MDs are a joke....everyone on the outside is laughing at you.

    Pros

    Well if your lucky to get a bonus then that is one of the best reason to work at Marsh USA inc.

    Cons

    Lack of communitcation, leadership, ownership of responsability. Micromanagement... i.e. what did you do yesterday , why did it take you an hour to complete a project that should have only taken u 15 mins. Having supervisors walk around to ensure your at your desk. Losing best talent because no money, yet Marsh had one of the best years in 2009.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth and maybe they will stick around longer.

    Pros

    they treat people baddly so they are forced to pay better than average wages. I would rather take a much lower paying job than stay there, which is what I did.

    Cons

    Management is horrible, no leadership at all.
    You are a resource to be consumed then disposed of. I worked there for 2 years in that time my location had a turnover rate (voluntary) of ~ 40%

    Advice to Management

    learn how to treat people with respect. we do not exist only to serve the company. there is no work life balance. managemant plays favorites all the time.

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

    Pros

    Benefits were some of the best in the business

    Cons

    They are constantly saying 'they're the good guys, we care about our people'
    Blame game is the entire culture - blame the newest on the team
    Review process is brutal - they keep harping at you until you say what they want to hear
    It's never the culture, your boss or the team, it's you and if you don't 'admit' it, you're 'not a team player'
    The consultants treat everyone else in the company like dogs
    They want other types of professional expertise, then hire you and treat you like a canker sore until you leave
    They over-promise clients, take on projects they know nothing about - it's all bravado and BS

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. seriously. Treat 'professional hires' and non-consultant staff like human beings. Realize that not everyone is 'drinking the MMC Koolaid' and actually sees how full of BS you all are

    Pros

    Money was alright. Cafeteria on site was usually very good.

    Cons

    Again,not family friendly at all. Don't know their insurance supplement plans like they should. Could take over 30 days to answer a customers question. Non-Caring management!
