    Bad for operational roles but good for sales roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent managment means trying to save talented older guys in the system. Older colleagues leaving is talent leakage and needs to be saved for progress of employement.

    Low staff morale

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies

    Pros

    - Great staff and lots of intelligent people to work with
    - Large company with excellent global resources
    - Strategic and sophisticated client service methodology
    - Excellent and challenging clients

    Cons

    - No recognition given to top performing employees
    - Senior management with fat pay checks while lower level employees are run to the ground and extremely underpaid
    - Company is all about the clients at the expense of staff well being and morale
     - Salary review process a joke. Constant internal memos about year on year double digit growth while non-management staff who really deliver the services to clients receive salary adjustments lower than inflation
    - too much unnecessary bureaucracy
    - CEO gets a lot of kudos from shareholders for cutting costs while staff are burnt out due to ridiculous work load and lack of support staff
    - low employee morale
    - everything has to be approved by New York

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest back in the business or you will lose your top performers which in turn will cost you a hell of a lot more than just recognising and doing the right thing by your staff

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Hoboken, NJ (US)

    I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is relatively good here and there's lots of room for growth and advancement (if you fight for it). Most of the people here are exceptionally smart, friendly, and pleasant to work with. There's no formal training given in most departments but teammates are always willing to teach or help you if you ask. I would say the corporate culture here is pretty laidback. There's casual Fridays, occasional team luncheons, and celebratory happy hours. Can't say much regarding time-off policy but it seems to be fairly standard. Diversity of employees and corporate discounts are nice too here.

    Cons

    Lots of work and long days (sometimes even weekends). You are worked to the bone here, but I think most companies are like that nowadays. Processes are slow to change, sometimes unnecessarily convoluted, and often difficult to follow closely. Leadership here seems to be a little narrow-minded to me but the company does make their numbers every quarter. Benefit packages seem to be OK but I think more incentives could be offered to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain your employees and keep them working hard, you need to offer more money or better incentives. Also, I would encourage you to offer more opportunities for team-building, creativity, and fun. It could go a long way with your employees.

    Pros

    The purpose of my review is mostly to focus on salary increases at Marsh. I will preface my comments by saying that I enjoy my job, mostly because of the people I work with. I've also been given opportunities to advance in the company, which has made it worth my while to stay here. Marsh employees will know that meeting expectations is associated with obtaining a "3" performance rating at the end of year review. In my time working for a subsidiary of this company, I have rated between 3 and 5, regularly meeting and exceeding expectations. In any given year, the highest salary increase I've had was 2%, and in every instance, was well below the national average. Although it is possible to start off with a salary that is competitive at Marsh, over time, one is at a disadvantage salary-wise.

    Cons

    To reiterate, salaries can be competitive and opportunities available if you with hard. However, salary increases tend to be very small year to year.
