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

    Pros

    Marsh has treated me well - they let me work on what I want and provide every possible benefit. The culture is OK as well - it is virtually unheard of for anyone to raise their voice or be rude to anyone. You get every benefit known to mankind, and late night/weekend work is rare these days

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs, endless pay freezes, senior management gets large bonuses but other employees get nothing unless you know someone. The company wastes money on endless fashionable management initiatives and rebranding but will not spend a penny on infrastructure applications. The bureaucracy can make you crazy. Women and minorities do not get promoted. There is absolutely no training and virtually no career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved with day to day activity - I have never seen any of the current "C" level management in person. Enough with rebranding and internal marketing initiatives -- the core systems are rotting and costing a fortune. Outsourcing IT is not saving money - you are getting less work for more money and have no ongoing knowledge of systems.

    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

    I have been working at Marsh

    Pros

    work with a group of friendly co-workers

    Cons

    job security is always behind one's mind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obsession in cost cutting will ultimately have an adverse effect on company's performance. Having satisfied employees is equally important as pleasing stock holders.

    Integrity is not of the words I would describe Marsh - lacks serious true leadership....

    I worked at Marsh

    Pros

    There once was a time where it was fun working at Marsh, people were respected, career path was clear and results from an IT delivery perspective were recognized.

    Cons

    It has become a cost savings environment. IT is not seen as competitive advantage - more as a necessary evil to keep up with Aon, Willis, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT leadership is POOR! No one respects the existing leadership under Williams - make the necessary changes and bring back the fun!
