Former Employee - Senior Vice President in Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at Marsh full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Professional firm with unlimited resources and excellant growth potential for young employees willing to learn the Insurance brokerage business. Company is constantly in the restructure mode to become more efficient.

Cons

Unfortunately there is a culture of nepotism and patronage among senior executives. Compensation has gone to a sales culture which includes a base salary and discretionary bonus structure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

look in the glass mirror and treat your senior employees with more respect since you will lose your competitve advantage through the loss of intellectual human capital.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues in the field truly focus on what is right for the clients and work hard for them. Not always easy as employee count shrinks and constant new iniatives.

    Great coworkers. Very good people in the trenches. A lot of loyalty.

    Cons

    Having employees go through 4 years of no raises while people were coming on making HUGE >$300k salaries was demoralizing. Appeared top executives were really taken advantage of countries economics woes for the masses. You're lucky to have a job etc.

    Huge organization. You don't get the sense you matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize very few are in support of current executives and no one is going to follow you into battle.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fair compensation. Quite a few knowledgeable and friendly colleagues. Nice, modern offices in Tower Place, London.

    Cons

    Very political environment. Few career development opportunities. Need to constantly fight for yourself / what you believe in. Poor team spirit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assess and reward people based on their actual performance, not solely what their manager thinks. Do not allow / support bullying practices in the workplace.
