Making an Impact: Working at Marsh & McLennan Companies

What we offer

How would we describe the company culture?

2f687399e5277550a674.jpg

As individuals, and as an enterprise, we are here to do work that matters. Our purpose is to make a distinctly positive impact on the businesses, people, and societies we serve by providing guidance and support during critical moments.

At Marsh & McLennan Companies, we bring together the most talented people across disciplines — and across the world.
Together, we unite under four core commitments:

ENABLING CLIENT SUCCESS

We anticipate the needs of our clients and act as their trusted advisors.

FINDING THE SMARTER WAY

We never stop searching for a better solution. Every day we ask: What will our clients need tomorrow? What more can we do today? What can we do better? Is there anything we’ve missed?

WORKING SIDE-BY-SIDE

Our entire enterprise rests upon the quality, commitment, and goodwill of the people we work with. We collaborate to harness our collective intelligence. 

LIVING THE GREATER GOOD

Clients trust us with their most pressing challenges and ardent goals. We act with integrity and strive to improve our communities around the world.

What else should applicants know about us?

OUR PEOPLE

Our greatest resource is the people who choose to give us their career.— Dan Glaser, President and CEO

The Marsh & McLennan way of working is to bring extraordinary people together in an environment where it’s safe to speak up. That’s how innovation happens in a big organization, when people are willing to tell their boss, “Here’s a smarter way.”

Marsh & McLennan welcomes people from all walks of life. The more diverse the backgrounds and experiences of our colleagues, the more opportunity we have as a company.   f98557741238753566c5.jpg

Employee resource groups help make big companies like ours feel smaller. Our Resource Groups provide more than support and a bigger voice. They have become potent professional development networks, connecting colleagues to opportunities for our company and themselves.

Support from management

direct call center management would rather discuss weekend plans instead of helping with tough callers, upper management are great to work with especially in the different diverse groups you can join.

Gender Equality

gender equality really is an issue here considering all the supervisors for most of their call centers are female not a single male in a supervisor role that I knew of.

Attitude towards older colleagues

they seem to think they are slower because they are older. but the age doesn't mean anything it just means more experience in life to work off of.

Career Development

This is one area they really need to grow and expand on. I tried while I was there to learn more about the job and if it wasn't in my job description I wasn't going to be able to.

Overall compensation for your work

I worked there for 2 years making less than $30k/yr and then someone in a temp to hire position gets hired on and gets a salary of $35k/yr their first day. Makes no sense they really don't pay you what you are worth and expect you to take 30-50 sometimes more calls a day.

Work-Life Balance

hard to get time off when needed, they make it seem like it is a huge hassle for one day.

Company Image

Never heard of them before I got contacted by a recruiter

Job Security

If your stats are not up to par.....Goodbye.

Workplace Safety

The building is on complete lock down if you do not have a badge or are there for something scheduled that the front door knows about you are not getting in.

Challenging Work

There are very few things that are challenging about this job, other than the obnoxious, whiny customers calling from New York who are teachers and should already know a few things about their policies or what are we teaching our children these days. I mean seriously.

Inclusive / Diverse

they say they are a diverse building but they really aren't in the natural sense of the word.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have better management that is actually willing to help their team members when they are asked and not shove them off because they have other things to discuss.

What I like about the company

I liked the different groups you can be a part of while you work for them, helps you network with different people and learn something new about the world around you.

What I dislike about the company

The hours I was given were crap, not recognition was ever given, and they have a suggestion board to help make things easier but nobody ever looks at it so what is the point in having it anyways.
