    Fantastic Employer, with great colleagues

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Colleagues. The benefits are amazing and the leadership is the best in the industry. The company is worldwide and has more of a partnership philosophy. The colleagues in my office have an average of 25 years experience in the industry and take pride in their job. The knowledge among the colleagues and teams are a huge asset and a great resource.

    ConsThe challenges are the company is large and there a several processes to work through get a simple task completed. This in result makes it very difficult to manage a task or project in a timely manner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to those who are out there actually working with the clients. Those individuals know what the clients want and how they want the services delivered.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It is a great company, but the department I work in needs to be evaluated for efficiency.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLarge company who had withstood the down economy with very little layoffs.

    ConsLarge company that means you and your work doesn't get easily noticed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward the employees - loosen up the purse strings for the broking staff.

    Very satisfied with my job, then it went offshore

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, plenty of PTO, good salary (except raises) no micro management, great teamwork and nice office.

    ConsMy position was "eliminated". In reality it went to India. Job is paperless so the only thing the company was looking to do was save a few bucks in wages. A company with 14+ billion revenue would rather have cheap labor than keep good loyal employees. I have seen so many good employees laid off. I was hoping to retire from Marsh in a few years. Now I am looking for another job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees for what they know and not how cheap they can be paid. The end result will be clients will go elsewhere costing the company more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employees are asked to do more and more, for the same salary.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and working hours

    ConsWork overload, too much to do, not enough time

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember those who perform the "grunt work"

    Be patient

    Placement Specialist (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsLargest broker in the world. Segmented groups allow for greater focus and expertise. The majority of employees have positive attitudes and enjoy what they do. Numerous employees that left the firm have come back proving that the grass isn't always greener.

    ConsCorporate structure can be slow at times. Not necessarily a con, but you will need to be patient to see large pay increase.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Salary Good, but too internally focused

    Client Advisor (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsSalary is good, local management is great, but corporate focus on internal processes and procedures makes client service a secondary goal, if that. Driven to automate to drive down costs and increase shareholder value.

    ConsInternal focus, lack of support, systems that do not work but employees are encouraged and rewarded for saying that they do. Spin machine in full use at all times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to what Marsh was known for. Superior people, superior service, and work-life balance for colleagues.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
