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

    Pros

    They offer great opportunities to learn and grow. My coworkers are helpful and easy to work with. I feel like local management really cares and wants to make our office an even better place to work. With only 40 people in the office, it's a great combo of a tight knit workplace with the benefits of a major corporation at the same time.

    Cons

    We are a small office in a large corporation- so sometimes we have to go by corporate decisions and procedures that are more complicated than they used to be. (Accounting, technology updates, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    I think we are on the right path, so keep it up .

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to learn and get industry exposure.

    Cons

    Poor management and people are treated like commodities. Only focus is the bottom line without any career growth opportunities. Annual performance reviews are non-existent.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, Integrity, Knowledgeable, Promotes Designations, Facility, Caring Co-Workers

    Cons

    Management - All Levels, Favoritism - Not All Employees Treated Equally (NOT Due to Race, Religion, Gender, etc.), Lack of Solving Problems, Below Market Pay, Minimal Salary Increases (If Lucky); High School Drama Atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    There should be at least a few members of management that don't spend most of their time working on clients or prospects. There should be positions that tend to the management responsibilities. Also, make sure you can actually see the negative comments on the employee survey and make changes instead of talking about making changes.

    Pros

    You may meet some nice people here that make the day bearable.

    Cons

    This company is a cluster poorly integrated acquisitions and nepotism. Sales are king in this company all the way through to the hiring process. They will sell you on the package of opportunity for growth and a great environment but there is not an ounce of truth in it. You have a lot of employees from different agencies that have made management their enemy. If you don’t “join” them you become their enemy as well....

    Advice to Management

    Your approach to management should not be the path of least resistance. Do not target employees who stand up for themselves against employees who have a history of disruptive and malicious behavior. All this does is alienate people and encourage an environment where bullying is rewarded by management. Employees dedicate 80% of their time to this company. You do have a responsibility towards the happiness of your employees....

    I enjoyed my time at Marsh & McLennan and comparitive to other workplaces I have no outright cons. As a recent college grad at the time.

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Agency full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good experience to take with you to a much better job. Pay "ok". Benefits "ok".

    Cons

    There are people who have worked there forever and this causes some issues. One being, opportunity to advance in certain areas is nonexistent. Two, this means some people who don't treat others well are never let go and they cause high employee turnaround, especially when they have no business being in a supervisor position. Favoritism abounds and HR couldn't care less. Three, causes low morale. Some positions are paid...

    Advice to Management

    Just because there is not an HR discipline for certain things, doesn't mean it's ok. If you get numerous complaints about someone, and employees go in and out like a revolving door, that means a change is necessary. This should not favor the fact the person has been with the company forever and they show their superiors a different side. It must be dealt with. Stop sweeping things under the rug. No one person is so important...
