Overall great company to work at, but beware of OpCo specificities
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 19, 2017
Things are very different depending where you work: at MMC Corporate or in the Operating Companies. Each Operating Company has a different culture and its own pros and cons. I've worked both at Mercer (one of the OpCos) and at MMC. I learned a ton, I had great managers all along. But life was definitely easier at MMC Corporate (more balance, fun and a higher pay) than it was at Mercer (long work hours and a lot of stress for a lower pay). Learning was fantastic as I said, both at Mercer and MMC. Plenty of intellectual stimulation. I've had so many opportunities to change businesses and geographies, I'm still amazed by it. Met great people.

It was fine
Finance Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 3, 2017
It's fine if you're okay with cultures resistant to change. The promotions process is straight forward so it's easy to get promoted as long as you put your head down and get your work done.

Extremely inefficient. Extremely stressful
Senior Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYSeptember 25, 2017
Constantly understaffed. The "do more with less" approach is pushed to a point of extreme inefficiency. Quality is constantly disregarded for quantity, so things are rarely done right the first time. Reporting and metrics are manipulated to make it appear that things are better than they actually are.
Pros
Average pay and benefits for a company of its size
Cons
People are spread too thin, Extremely stressful environment, Advancment based upon politics rather than performance

Not Worth It
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 10, 2017
Chaotic - Stressful - No Training - No Managerial Feedback - Office fosters a culture of territorial, back biting, and untrustworthy 'colleagues' and managers. Colleagues and managers are approached for their input on your progress, but appraisals are secretive and therefore are often personally motivated and not professional.
Good pay and benefits, but definitely not worth the trouble if you are working on a career in health benefits.
Pros
Pay, Benefits.
Cons
Secretive Management. No Feedback. No Training!!

Not a place I would want to work again.
Property & Casualty Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAAugust 7, 2017
Marsh is not a company that I would personally want to work for again. The people are nice, middle management at the time I worked there, which was long ago, were pretty clueless.

Dont Come Here
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  GeorgiaJuly 20, 2017
You can be happier elsewhere. Work life balance is not an option - unless you are already an MD/SVP. Morale is horrible at all levels. Be ready to play the political game with managers who have no empathy and no backbone. Sorority life was easier to manage.

Great place to work but could be very stressful and overwhelming. Some supervisors are micro managers and some are not very helpful. Cultural environment is very mixed, which is a benefit.
