Culture can vary wildly from operating company to operating company
IT leader (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYMarch 22, 2017
MMC jobs can be worlds different based on the opco and department. Some areas have people with 20+ year satisfying careers and great work-life balance. Other areas have very high stress and turnover. Look to the tenure of people around a role before considering as it may well reflect the culture of that department.

Great place to work
Associate Placement Specialist, AVP (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 21, 2017
Marsh is a great place for someone just starting out. Opportunities are available if you're ambitious and have the ability to work well with others. The hardest part of the job may be the workload.
Pros
Free lunches, carrier events, team members
Cons
Workload, management styles

Low Morale? High Turnover rate
Shared Services Rep (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYMarch 20, 2017
Company seems to try really hard at being a great place to work but in my opinion fails miserably. If you are not a part of the inner circle then you pretty much get no where fast. Management does not encourage individual thinking but rewards a follow the leader style employee. As with most companies minorities in a position of leadership are very few if any.
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
You have to pay for parking, Advancing is all about who you know instead of what you know, Too cliquish

I worked for M&M for 8 years and it was a great experience. Collegues are hard working and very supportive of one another. You gain relationships that last a lifetime.
Pros
Great Support
Cons
Outsourced alot of jobs, hopefully they do not support that anymore.

The atmosphere is courteous but not fun.

The most ambitious and promising talent always leaves due to low pay and no opportunity for advancement.
Pros
The work doesn't follow you home, courteous colleagues
Cons
low pay, no opportunities for advancement leading to a drain of younger talent, friendly but not fun work atmosphere

Heavy workload for most with below average compensation for industry
AVP (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 23, 2017
Many employees appear to be overworked with a heavy schedule of travel. Internal culture varies drastically by office between laid back and formal. Compensation stagnates after initial hire with extremely regimented advancement schedule. Firm viewpoint to be turnover resilient so that each person who leaves can be easily replaced creates atmosphere of low individual value.

There are a lot of wastes in talent and duplicate work that is going on between teams. Process can be streamlined that will make things run better between one group to the next.

Good pay, poor culture
Senior Private Client Advisor (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 15, 2016
Relatively good pay but very poor work culture.
Toxic work environment.
Bullying and gossiping very much prevalent.

Company is okay but the quality of the employees management hires is very poor with some having having less than a year insurance experience and are given a big book of business that they obviously won't be able to handle because of lack of insurance knowledge, skills and experience.

What a big disappointment.
