    Assistant Vice President in Boston, MA
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is good. The local office in Boston had some of the best people to work with, both intelligent and professional, but always stayed grounded.

    Cons

    Although locally the communication was decent, senior management in the NY headquarters was not in touch with the employees that actually dealt with vendors and the high expectations of clients. In the worst of times, the best we got was a series of buzz words, and MBA/Executive level cliche phrases that meant nothing. Completely out of touch with what was going on locally. Could not keep a hold of young talent.

    Pros

    Great people, comprehensive benefits package, pension plan, decent vacation and personal days allowance, nice cafeteria

    Cons

    Senior management in the group was very overpaid for their skill level and ability to manage. Luckily, most of the dead weight in the upper ranks was let go shortly after I left. I hear positive things from colleagues who are still there.
