    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.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you like to be busy, this is the place to be. Constant change = constant (and often crazy) work. Work schedule is typically flexible and there are allowances for working from home.

    Cons

    If you don't play politics, don't expect to get ahead here. There is somewhat of a 'group think' mentality here. Because of this, no one wants to make tough decisions and projects tend to drag out.

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Up until this year benefits were above average. Some of the technology team are driven and well supported. It really depends on you immediate boos.

    Cons

    In 8 years I have had a max of 2% raise every year. Salaries are below par and there is no training or room for advancement. Leadership lives in NYC or London in big towers. They are insular and out of touch with their employees. Mercer, the 'HR' company is a joke. Marsh is full of wannabes. Guy Carpenter is full or bloated egos. Oliver Wyman is full of egos that might give Guy Carpenter are run for it money. If your LGBT you'll never get fired for any drama. Discriminates against people who are not politically correct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the drive to the bottom and stop outsourcing your staff to India.
