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

    Pros

    Good Pay. Good opportunities. Good canteen. Good Bonuses. Listening Leadership. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    In former JLT India teams are structured more or less in an independent island manner. And that island is managed by the local Leader. The only thing that is taken care of in electing the local leaders is their ability to say yes to management only. Some of these leaders turn out to be undeserving people running the crowd on an island like Kings. They have powers like taking care of Leave applications (overriding them whenever required), Communication to clients about individuals, Decisions regarding the distribution of various facilities/resources among individuals. Now as we all know that with power there should always come responsibilities to manage out a balance. However too much and almost unchecked power in the wrong hands can lead to corruption and immoral indulgences. If you carefully go through earlier reviews on JLT India, you would have seen certain reviews about a Manager in Law team and his indulgences. Unfortunately, he is not the only case where a manager of an island has taken an individual of a particular gender for a ride. It is a disease that had spread itself into many teams. You can frequently notice managers moving along only with few selected female individuals. And then out of nowhere, those selected female individuals start getting almost out of turn facilities / Promotions, etc. This kind of behavior starts making team environments toxic and puts other female members of the team in an uncomfortable position, as they keep wondering if there is a fair way for them to grow professionally or not. JLT India on its part has always avoided this matter; otherwise so many reviews pointing to a possible conflict of interest must have triggered at least a fair internal investigation. And this neglect has acted as a boost for the kings/managers of other teams. JLT India has always been a paymaster taking extra care of its employees. However, a small act of taking conferences of Managers and explaining to them the importance of spending their money out of bounds of office to fulfill their desires might lead to a healthy environment inside the teams that may produce great results. In case Managers may not be interested in spending their money, offering them reimbursement for their unfulfilled desires might be helpful too. JLT India used to have many good things; however, this one negligence can impact its foundation.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Marsh & McLennan Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good opportunity to build capability and exposure.

    Cons

    Very bad culture and the department is being run like a family business. Ex CEO of jlt India had personally set up the department as the knowledge power house in India but now it's a laughing stock. Because of Marsh and Mercer affiliation, the leader is always fighting with the business heads and they are fighting with each other. All this internal politics and negativity leads to favouritism and targeting of employees who are seen aligned with rival camps. If you are close to management, you get away with anything including harassing fellow colleagues and everyone maintains a blind eye. But if you have no political affiliation, then there is no one to stand for you.

    Pros

    Possibility of better culture and future in the company due to MMC Acquisition

    Cons

    Numerous unethical and wrongful practices are followed within the HR department. Especially the senior management hound and harass their subordinates. This creates extremely bad culture within the company. Marginalization of female employees is done constantly. There is hardly any empathy towards employees left in this department. Someone really needs to do something about it before it worsens.

    Pros

    Great work environment, challenging work, good HR team, pro employee policies and practices which are better than industry standards. More often than not, we see evidences of a good work culture through empathy and compassion shown towards employees including ones who exit! It's the leaders at JLT India who make a difference..

    Cons

    Delayed decision making, ambiguous India structure which should get resolved by 2020..

    Pros

    I have been a part of the Legal team for almost 2 years now. There is immense exposure and growth opportunities in this team, especially for Lawyers. The management for Legal India is extremely knowledgeable and transparent with their team members, which is a boon for everyone in the team. Recently, there have been some changes within the legal team, which has led everyone to work on all the regions which India supports on. I have been a part of various cross border transactions and legal contracts, which have helped me in gaining enormous knowledge on multiple legal aspects.

    Cons

    Must work upon secondment opportunities for the legal team members.
