Marsh India - A Good and Bad place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mumbai

I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 3 years

Tax Attorney

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis company is a great place to work. Fantastic benefits and a great work-life balance. Smart people and not too political. Tons of vacation time and separate sick days makes it very accommodating. Subsidized cafeteria makes lunch cheap, and in-building gym is super convenient. Super stable environment and company. Great for someone not looking for a crazy lifestyle.

ConsI didn't find any cons, except for the slow pace - at times it can be inert. Bonuses didn't increase, nor did salaries.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp create more projects for everyone to keep people busy. Give them real goals. And deadlines. Create more cross-department interaction and training programs - anything to bring more visibility between departments.

Overall positive, but with an odd new annoyance policy popping up every far-too-often

IT Professional (Current Employee)
Milton Keynes, England (UK)

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

ProsHigh pay, professional environment, opportunities available for those who want them

ConsWhile you can move up, it certainly seems to be a long wait at the moment, with little to no growth in higher teams at the moment.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the decisions filtering down to the lower ranks seem thoroughly misguided, nothing hugely significant, just things that should have never been signed off on, including certain program updates, particular goals and targets (and the repercussions of not hitting them) and aspects of the security and validation policy. There is a culture of keeping all the boxes green on a spreadsheet, rather than looking with any detail into what they mean or why they are there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
