Certificate Specialist II (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – April 27, 2016
At the Marsh Austin office, the hard workers eventually get frustrated and go elsewhere. The just-okay employees that stick around long enough will eventually get promoted to supervisors. The terrible ones get away with being terrible for far too long. Compensation is low and those in New York think it is just fine. But sometimes there is a chance to win a $10 gift card! Benefits, like medical and 401(k) and vacation time, are pretty good. Lots of annoying people as co-workers and a mix of great and terrible people in the offices we work with around the company.
All in all - would not recommend unless you need something between finding what you really want.
Senior Casualty Claims Consultant - Vice President (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 30, 2016
- a typical day at work there was no "typical day". working at Marsh and Sears. With the number of clients I managed and the responsibilities I was charged with, it was not easy to predict what my day would look like. In addition, while assisting clients with their day to day claims management I was at times working on team projects that would require my contribution.
-What I learned: to be able to change directions and mindset on a dime; be open change my focus to take on new challenges; no two clients and their issues are the same
-management: very open door policy; regular feedback on work performed and client feedback; always gave opportunities to work on new opportunities and with new and larger clients once I proved my capabilities
-my co-workers for the most part, we shared ideas, worked well together, discussed problems we were having, etc.
Travel; encouraged and funded continuing education
Health Care & Benefit Specials (Current Employee) – Norwood, MA – September 10, 2016
I worked from 8 am to 5 pm, five days a week. There were multiple computer systems I had to use simultaneously, while assisting employees with there complicated issues within the companies they worked for. We did all the Human Resource work for over 268 fortune 500 companies. Following up on their cases on a timely matter was imperative.
Mercier had a diverse environment, and we all worked as a team. Learning how to be a team player to get the job done made me much closer to my co-workers. .Meeting the deadlines could be tough, but it was a good challenge, but without my co-workers close to impossible.
The hardest part of the job for me was the very sad situations employees may have been in. Though it was hard, the job was very rewarding. I was constantly reminded I was making a difference in their lives, helping them find solutions to their problems.
Working for Mercier was very enjoyable. The company provided a lot of incentives through out the week, i.e; food, contests, volunteer work, and functions. It was sad saying goodbye to a lot of them
A great company to work for that strives for excellence. I help colleagues, manage risk by complying with insurance laws & regulation.
I work closely with Licensing Coordinators, producers & compliance personnel to ensure licensing compliance & confidentiality. I perform corporate licensing functions, including obtaining/maintaining licenses, handling corporate appointments with insurance carriers, filing of required state reports & troubleshoot complex licensing matters with state licensing bureaus, carriers & licensing vendor. Additionally, frequently communicates with state licensing bureaus regarding licensing requirements & issues. I’m an advocate for continually improving & creating solutions to licensing issues & ways to improve workflow.

Credit Service Analyst - Contract Role (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – March 23, 2016
I really enjoyed the contract role I had at Marsh and McLennan. Lots of work and not micro managed. My contract was extended for one month. Right before the end of the contract though things with management got sketchy. One employee terminated, one out on short term disability. two veterans quickly up and left, one position eliminated. There was so much work to do and only about five employees left to cover the load. I do not have a clear understanding as to what is going on with management and the team.
MMC Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 20, 2016
There is not a lot of growth opporuntunity or interanl movement.Your experience is really shaped by your team and manager - though I don't know many people that are happy working at this company. It really needs a cultural over haul.
Catastrophe Risk Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 22, 2016
There is a great atmosphere at MMC, there are very fun, goal oriented people that work there. The comp and benefits are great, best dental far I've seen yet. The architecture and systems is modern and updated. Only drawback is the work/life balance, not much flexibility there.
Great company with good benefits and work environment
Security Coordinator / General Motors Company (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – February 18, 2016
A typical day would include processing invoices, fulfilling software and website requests. I learned a lot of different computer programs, GRIT, SAP and OPRA. Management treated their employees fairly and supported their ideas and training. My co-workers were team players and we all supported each other's workloads. I really like the variety of tasks I was responsible for and I was always learning something new. Never a dull day.
Meeting Planner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 25, 2016
Mercer is overall a good place to work. They value work/life balance and understand not all colleagues would like to work a traditional M-F 9-5. I love working on events and wish to continue to do that in some capacity throughout my career.
corporate finance (Former Employee) – New Jersey – January 11, 2016
Bad culture where politics and saving a buck rules. They do not care about their employees unless they are very senior executives or someone generating a lot of revenue. Have a lot of good people who work hard for the company but they do not get the respect they deserve.
Insurance Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 9, 2015
I personally felt as if management was purposely holding me back from advancement because the department was brand new. They wanted to become established and prove their worth even if it meant holding someone back. Also, The department that I worked in was made up of entirely of kids straight out of college - first job EVER! Because of that, we were ALL treated like children and micromanaged. It was difficult to work with people who didn't know what professionalism really means. I've paid my dues in the corporate world and have a lot of industry experience. My skills can be put to better use.
