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

    Pros

    Travel (if very lucky) Holiday is better than average (26 days + bank holidays)

    Cons

    They recruit younger staff on higher salaries however there is zero progression. If you want to relocate you are expected to stay on the same salaries. Obnoxious management, people are obliged to stay there past 5.30pm, extremely poor communication, top to bottom approach, things only improved since the acquisition of JLT (they honored JLT's benefits but they'll be gone next year), men's culture, the MD is unprofessional and gossipy, no work life balance, £450 pay rise after three years as each year they would say that there's no money in the pot (and then after no bonuses and budgets) would release a statement about what a great financial year they've had.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees - younger people won't stay.
