    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.
