    Pros

    Good money, not a super high-pressure environment. You can stay there forever. On a bad day, it's like a pretty cool purgatory.

    Cons

    Unsexy, lots of cold calls, insurance industry is not that exciting. My boss looks like a greasy quaalude dealer from Long Island in the 1970s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dress better.

    Nothing really bad about this company. I really love working here. the benefits and the pension programs here are really good and they really take a care of you as their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think team work is really important and it is where you learn most of the professional skills from. Team work never hurt.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Marsh really is an insurance industry leader and the employees do a great job on focusing on the clients and risk assessment. The Producers of the company are really second to none and they do an excellent job with all their work.

    Cons

    Being a brokerage firm the benefits and perks are really focused on the sales/ client facing colleagues while pay remains incredibly low for those in administration or support roles. Senior management and policy makers still struggle with connecting thier minds with their hearts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better pay rates and opportunities for colleagues to grow. Taking on additional job duties/responsibilities should also translate into more pay/benefits. Also, work on connecting the head to the heart. Constantly being cerebral about our work hinders true innovation and excitement.
