    I worked at Trion Group, a Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very few; over the years I watched the environment erode and deteriorate.

    Cons

    In my multi-year experience, employees came and went at a very high rate. It really was troubling to watch. The atmosphere is depressing and politically charged.

    Advice to Management

    This will fall on deaf ears; The issues are top down. A new system to allow employees to talk with an independent HR firm is needed.

    I worked at Trion Group, a Marsh & McLennan Agency (More than a year)

    Pros

    The brokerage side of the company is the cash cow.

    Cons

    The Ben Admin side of the company is held together with band-aides and makes little contribution to the bottom line. Most brokerage accounts expect the service for free so as part of the commissions paid so literally nothing to invest in fully staffing or state of the art software. Nepotism is blatant in the few mgt. roles they have, forget about trying to advance in the company. They demand 60+ hour weeks through December only to lay-off staff every year because they don't have the funds to pay bonuses. Annual turnover exceeded 30% - so bad they don't even put their name on their ads on CareerBuilder anymore. Don't waste your time!

    Pros

    Trion is a fast-growing company and has a large number of opportunities.
    They truly try not to terminate employees without giving them every opportunity imaginable to correct identified issues.
    The group is striving to embrace diversity (gender and age)
    They have an engaging and energetic front-facing lead that is good at getting teams fired up for success (Robert P.)

    Cons

    Although a part of MMC, this group does not offer the generous benefits available under the MMC umbrella. Coverage is not near the level of most benefit consulting firms who lead by example, for their clients.

    Leadership is in continuous conflict. While there is a great front-facing leader, once you get past the facade, decisions are being made by one leader, but not communicated to the next and irregularly communicated to staff so there are countless duplicate efforts and any given time and each effort is extremely possessive of their own version.

    Team members are not fairly rewarded. Tenure and connections are your best bet for growth in this company. Although they embrace new technology, the overall attitude is to treat those employees hired to implement that technology as the enemy

    This company has two separate entities. Business Administration Consulting. These two groups truly vilify one another at every opportunity. Even when there is a simple business solution that partner companies across the country embrace, the internal team refuses to support the same efforts. This starts at the leadership level leading to hostility throughout the organization.

    The culture resembles a giant game of chess with the employees serving as the game pieces in a huge power struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to one another. Support your team members.Listen to your team members, they are living through this daily. Identify a unified approach, communicate it clearly to all groups, work together to be a better company instead of against one another for the benefit of individual egos.

    Pros

    Training and knowledge of clients was upmost to make sure their needs were met.

    Cons

    The unchecked lack of professionalism by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Standards and Protocol are to be followed starting from the top and equal treatment should be accross the board.

    great people doing the day to day work

    Cons

    Executive management treats employees like cattle and has laid off employees in late December to save on paying out bonus. The company has had a clear attitude change with Dave Oberkirker's illness.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you're only there because the employees of the company

    Pros

    Great employee relations. They seemed to care about employees happiness.

    Cons

    Management turnover was unreal. There were so many different ideas and strategies that it never felt like the same people were ever in the same room. It was like being on a school bus with no driver.

    Advice to Management

    Try to stick around long enough to make a difference. If you can't hack it, why do you think that your tech and benefit analysts can't?
