Pros

Largest 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.

Cons

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

    Pros

    Worked at Marsh within an IT leadership position and found it very rewarding to be a part of a team that wanted to make a difference. The people and senior leaders at Marsh are very organized and genuinely care about the internal and external impacts of decisions made. Huge opportunity for growth within a large corporation.

    Cons

    Analysis Paralysis. The teams need to get out of their own way so tasks can get finished. Death by meeting also marred the experience a bit. Process perfection was touted even at the expense of project completion which is not good.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need to step aside and let your leaders lead. Micromanagement does not have a place when there is so much work to be done.

    Pros

    Corporate Structure
    On Site Cafe
    Broad locations worldwide

    Cons

    Pay/Rewards
    Politics - For success you must join in with the fake management onboard. I refused to play on the team.
    Too much red tape, very management heavy. It takes 5 weeks to get anything done
    Lots of waste- management, processes, system
    Systems and programs are from 1990 or earlier

    Advice to Management

    Maybe work to remove some of the inefficient management from the top and things will shift in the right direction.
    Invest in your technology, 1990 systems should be long gone if you want to become an winning organization.
