    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Heavy on procedures and policies. Leadership partnership was great, laid out expectation, big on transformation

    Cons

    Decided to outsource their HR Operations team over to India and Kentucky for cost savings when the former team quality was above average. Restructuring Ops ended up being back some of their resources in house again.

    Paper driven environment. Medical benefits were high.

    Pros

    Good broker, good people. Employee benefits were among the best in the industry. Good business training provided a good environment for learning

    Became to "corporate" and has been cutting benefits for employees lately. Does not care about their employees, too bad they are losing a lot of talented people.

    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.
