Marsh

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies

ProsThey seem to make strides to listen to their employees, We get to work someone close to the suits. It's a top risk management company found around the world.

ConsMy supervisor is terrible and makes me hate going to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf there is a lot of turnover in a specific department. Take a look in the mirror, as it's likely one of your present staff members that is scaring people away.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Salary Good, but too internally focused

Client Advisor (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSalary is good, local management is great, but corporate focus on internal processes and procedures makes client service a secondary goal, if that. Driven to automate to drive down costs and increase shareholder value.

ConsInternal focus, lack of support, systems that do not work but employees are encouraged and rewarded for saying that they do. Spin machine in full use at all times.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to what Marsh was known for. Superior people, superior service, and work-life balance for colleagues.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Pay, Poor Management

Policy Analyst (Former Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

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

ProsWorked for Marsh Inc. as a Policy Reviewer for a new hub opening in Austin. Attention to detail demanding, okay folks, benefits and pay were great.

ConsUnfortunate power plays and politics between departments and hubs, their inability to communicate caused a failing and closure of the hub.

Advice to Senior ManagementSolidify policies and practices before instituting a new department and foster communication and compliance between QA and review departments.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

OK, but insane amount of concurrent projects in flight at once

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsPay and benefits pretty good, reasonable flexible working policy, superb immediate management

ConsExpectation of project deliverables just crazy. Too many things on the go at once, no quality control, too many "A1" priority tasks handed to you. Cost cutting affecting personal development, if you want to learn, best to do it in your own time at your own expense.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop penny pinching and do some better long term forecasting of projects to stop ramming everything through at the drop of a hat.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

The operating companies have gotten their act together while Corporate is political and poorly managed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsGreat CEO, good benefits, reasonable work life balance. High collaboration across departments. Some of the operating companies increasingly reward talent.

ConsCorporate is full of politicians, who don't care about talent. Too many empty suits in important positions in Finance and HR.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview the heads of all functions at corporate and get rid of the clueless ones. Base assessment of employees on achievement of outcomes, and not apearances.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
