Former Employee - Senior Vice President in Hoboken, NJ
Former Employee - Senior Vice President in Hoboken, NJ

I worked at Marsh full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Nothing that can invite the top talent but good for pedestrian and mediocre talent. The place can really become nice to work if the current top management is fired and new set of leadership is brought that has hands on knowledge and are technical and also respect the IT resources.

Cons

Very weak IT management, no vision, top management laced with insecurity, mantra applied "award the mediocrity and suppress the meritocracy", filled with "yes sir" culture. Highly disorganized with the leaders having no clue how to run and IT organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the top IT management and flatten the organization of hierarchy. Top management pay and bonus should be directly linked to the performance and they should be held responsible

    If your department's NOI isn't stellar, your severance package may be on it's way from HR!

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

    Pros

    PTO and Company Benefits for officers are very good - equal or better than industry standard. IT department and support does excellent job with keeping pace with change.

    Cons

    Upper Management changes what they want from their workforce as often as they change their wardrobe - with each season! Employees need some stability - constant upheaval at management level creates stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top Management is more worried about image and how Marsh looks from the outside instead of providing a nurturing environment for their workforce. Get back to the basics of providing excellent service to the client by retaining the devoted, long-term employees

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

    Pros

    - Some of the best people in the industry work here
    - Leverage in the marketplace - great financial results for clients
    - Lots of opportunities to move departments/offices (as long as you are OK being responsible for your own career path)
    - Global network

    Cons

    - Internally focused vs client focused (and yes, clients are noticing)
    - So many procedures, forms, processes that getting actual work done is difficult - especially at the Client Rep level
    - Morale at an all-time low (and it's been low for years) as Marsh changes systems/processes AGAIN
    - Many of the best people are also the lowest paid. Being a long-time employee guarantees you will not be paid the same as someone who is hired fresh at the same level.
    - Local management cannot get anything done without NY approval
    - Continually claim that people are the best asset of the company but employees are overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated (and if you are exempt expected to work overtime in order to be recognized; or if non-exempt looked down upon for not being able to get all your work done within an 8.5 hour day)
    - Diversity initiative is laughable as it's all surface talk
    - Middle Market at Marsh is especially challenging as Marsh does not value mid-size clients the same as the Fortune 500's or the people that work on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Marsh should be the best company in the business given the talent of the people that work there, but the procedures and processes that take so much time away from actual broking for clients needs to be simplified and/or eliminated
    - Trust the employees - so many of the things pushed down on them has to do with the fact that Marsh does not trust employees to do the right thing
    - Staff up! Marsh is finally trying to fix the issue of being severely understaffed, but it may be too little too late
    - Too many things changing all at once right now - people are burned out and it's pushing people out the door
