    Pros

    Professionalism and expertise locally here in Australia in the Construction realm is second to none. Working environment is social and professional.

    Cons

    Commitment to clients is great, but career development for employees i.e. wanting to move overseas has been hit with continue barriers. I would think that career development and a global perspective would be sought after, however it has proved hard to come by when choosing to move OS.

    Pros

    Marsh & McLennann has provided some great opportunities to work with some very experienced brokers. MMC Clients are very interesting.

    Cons

    Management lack of recognition that staff are performing. There are some really great employees but the lack of recognition has a negative effect on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management to actually interact and talk to staff about concerns. Management to action the concerns of employees versus saying we have listened to your concerns and nothing evolves.

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

    Pros

    Large company with great benefits. The holiday schedule is great. The amount of vacation, sick and floating holidays is great.

    Cons

    Management stinks. Working for a large company leaves some of us falling through the cracks.
    The company advocates transparency but there are things going on the department I work in that if higher ups were to find out they would probably blow a gasket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to who you hire and what they bring to the table. If all they bring is drama and problems perhaps you shouldn't hire them. Someone with some college or a college degree should only be considered for this job.
