Marsh & McLennan Companies offers many perks for employees, including a "full nurse's office," "lots of great lunch options at the cafeteria, "car service home if you become ill at work," and "free dinner from local delivery restaurants if you work past 7 on any day."

Employees find that management at the company is "extremely supportive," and there are "many opportunities to work with other teams on projects." However, Marsh & McLennan Companies is "a large organization," and "while this brings opportunities, it can also make it difficult to move to different positions." – Weniger
