    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 (more than a year)

    Pros

    Marsh has established itself as a powerhouse in the marketplace. People recognize that and they can use that leverage to their benefit. The culture and company values are great. The company really cares about their people, and it is always priority number one. Leadership is the best in the business, and they are always looking to better the company, their employees, and grow. There is also lots of potential to move laterally into many different sectors of the company if you do your due diligence.

    Cons

    If you are in an entry-level position, the compensation and time off are not ideal. However, you know what you are getting into. It takes a little longer than expected to move into a promotion or another role in the company. Everything at this company takes awhile to gain movement, as in they are slow to make decisions.

    Pros

    Sharp Colleagues
    Great Clients
    Resource specialists
    Unique and engaging projects

    Cons

    Work life balance is a joke - consultants often on road 75% of time
    Lots of quality staff leaving
    Dated technology
    Arrogant senior leadership
    Poor or zero raises past 6 years
    Last year have seen a palpable shift from management whereby share price outweighs employee morale/satisfaction/burnout

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are overlooking the contributions of your client facing staff for the sake of analytics.
