    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working arrangements in place

    Cons

    Historically, the claims team in Sydney was a really nice place to work. However, since the merger with JLT and the influx of JLT managers into senior positions within Client Advisory Services (CAS) it has increasingly become a toxic place to work. This stems from the senior management team treating staff awfully and this is clearly coming from the top down. The approach of senior managers appears to be if you don’t like it you know where the door is. Senior managers running the claims team do not have any understanding of claims and the day to day operation, leading to increasingly questionable changes. One of the things I used to like about Marsh was the collaboration management had with its employees and providing a transparent forum when making changes to the business. Unfortunately, this is now non-existent as decisions are made without consultation with the people it has the biggest impact on. Monetizing claims has become the biggest priority and the interests of employees and clients is no longer a motivating factor. It is truly a sorry state of affairs.

    Thank you for providing feedback. However, I believe your review may be for a different unit. Marsh & McLennan Agency only has offices in the United States and Canada.

    Pros

    They work really hard to cultivate a great culture. They support designations which is great if you have the time. They encourage growth. They are very flexible with scheduling which is great.

    Cons

    They encourage promotion but not with regards to pay. Going from one position to the next comes with a greater responsibility but a joke of a pay raise.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - work from home one day a week (if manager approves) - lots of free food YUM - new office - completely renovated - most of the people are really pleasant and great friends - wants to improve culture and is trying

    Cons

    - everything depends on your manager, if you have a manager that has high turnover, which is most open positions, you will probably have a bad time - slow to change, there is a lack of adaption to a newer generation, they are trying but it takes forever to get anything approved - slow to promote, takes about 2-3 years to get promotes with minimal pay increases - low pay for the amount of work you have - lack of training - lack of consistency between departments - very old school, work your way up and get treated poorly until you can work your way up 10 years later - culture lacks transparency - It doesn't matter how many times you go to HR, they aren't there for you. They are there to protect the company and those that are mistreating employees - pays low and unequally ( This did not affect me, however, it did affect my colleagues) - harassment can happen, document everything. This happened to not only me, but also multiple employees in similar roles. Seems like the "bottom line" is not appreciated
