    Pros

    - Senior management are accessible and approachable - Co-workers easy to work with - Friendly and nice culture, relaxed, with work/life balance

    Cons

    - Scores of good people I worked with were regularly let go in the MMC Corporate Center, mostly due to tight budgets, falsely cloaked as a "reduction in force" or the "position was eliminated" (when it was not) - Work environment gets stale because there is no investment in new programs, even inexpensive ones - There is no COO (the position doesn't exist) to drive excellence or set expectations for people to deliver; lots of people supporting you are nice but unmotivated

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Marsh brand is a big name in insurance and carries a lot of weight with clients, carriers, and others in the industry. There are lots of resources available to you if you know where to find them. You will have access to many talented and experienced colleagues.

    Cons

    Change comes slowly in a large organization like this. There is little thought given to the size or makeup of the book assigned to you. Work/life balance issues. Management ranges from excellent to incompetent (and everything in between).

    Pros

    Its a good company. Top in its field. Upper management knows to be profitable it has to retain its people. They do this by giving competitive salaries and good employee benefits. Periodically they send surveys to better understand the morale of the employees but also to see if there is anything they should add or change in the benefits to the employees. They care and they show it.

    Cons

    Due to restructuring in the department there was no work/life balance. Long hours were required with little or no compensation for them.
