    In the beginning of my career at Marsh - Enjoyable job and nice people at Marsh.

    Client Representative II (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat Benefits and pay. Many holidays. Working with large accounts and good people.

    ConsPoor Management and lots of favoritism. You are a just a number at Marsh as no job security. They lay off good employees and keep others for no good reason. I worked hard and received great reviews and praise but got laid off with other people. I thought my job was secure and was shocked about getting the axe.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your most valuable asset - Your employees.

    POOR LEADERSHIP IN FINPRO

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood benefits, colleagues and collaboration across departments.

    ConsFINPRO leadership is detached and focused on "managing up" and taking care of their friends, rather than those colleagues that actually do the work. Performance reviews and bonuses are determined by a "beauty contest" under the corporate guise of "curve ranking", which does nothing but serves the purpose of leadership that punishes and retaliates against dissenters. I agree with the other commenter who noted that Marsh lies about giving raises. They do not…unless, of course, you are well-connected, OR you complain and they want to use you until they can find someone else to replace you!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice The Greater Good, and especially the Integrity portion of IGNITE!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    FINPRO

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat management, tools and process flow. Ability to learn a great deal. Supportive mangers etc.

    ConsIf talent is your biggest assets, why not invest in them? Lack of raises, bonuses and adjustments for promotions shows managements mentality only higher ups get taken care of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your intellectual capital. Show you care for employees, cause right now you don't!
