    Great people, learned a lot, highly professional organization There's a benefit to working for a large organization, great support, but working within small teams at Marsh allows for more specialization


    Pace was slow at times A lot of bureaucracy that can come with the territory at a large organization Compensation was ok

    Advice to Management

    Things are greatly improved since all the legal issues, keep up the good work, remain focused on customers, employees and shareholders.

    Very friendly employees giving behavioral interviews. Managers in 4 of Marsh's departments and the head of HR will interview every candidate for roughly 30 minutes each. They do a good job of making it seem like there are fewer candidates trying for the position you want than there actually are. Very few technical questions were asked, they just want to see what engine you are working with. My future manager interviewed me and he was very friendly.
