Absolutely NO raises given in this company for years. Employees at all levels are treated as disposable.

I worked at Marsh full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Midtown location of the NYC headquarter office. Name recognition of this large international company in the brokerage industry.

Cons

No raises. Low (if any) bonuses. No room for career advancement. Terrible management and abysmal leadership especially in FINPRO. Employee morale and motivation are extremely low. Diversity is dismal. Marsh has many corporate initiatives and programs in place but it is all just "form over substance" and a means to check the box from a compliance standpoint. Upper Management is an exclusively white old boys (and girls) club, consisting for the most part of people who are far from brilliant but who have mastered the game of politics. No one in management has a shred of humanity, empathy or compassion. Nor is anyone interested in cultivating the large numbers of under-utilized and under-appreciated talent in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

PAY your people. Give them raises. Give them Bonuses. Make them feel valued rather than disposable.

Start valuing the people who work hard and work well, rather than the ones who play politics.

Place people who know how to manage in managerial positions and provide ongoing training for managers. Instead of wasting time and resources on bi-annual reviews that are merely form over substance, engage in 360 reviews and be open to constructive criticism from employees.

    I worked at Marsh full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the brokers were very helpful and I did learn a fair bit. Benefits were decent, vacation time was plentiful.

    Cons

    It was impossible to get a day off. My supervisor was unwilling to let me get one morning off to buy a house, but took two weeks off to go to Europe after half of our team quit. Often, he would swing by my desk before he left on for the weekend and pressure me to work weekends (just like the manager in "Office Space"). Training is terrible, and because the workload is so heavy new employees are given trial by fire. No one is happy at Marsh in Austin, and the work environment is miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation for the little guys, create a real training program and put a bit of thought into who you promote as a supervisor or team lead.

    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
