    Great people; lackluster pay

    Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI think the people at Marsh are great. It's generally a good environment where people work hard but have a sense of humor and are socially fun.

    ConsThe salaries seem average at best. Definitely not known to be high payers. Try to get in at a high salary because even the merit raises are weak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your top rated employees better pay. The recognition in this area is poor.
