    Pros

    Very stable company. Good atmosphere, with a sincere non-assuming feeling.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on metrics and the actual time taken to complete a task, in the use of Siebel time management program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the emphasis back on what is actually accomplished daily by an employee and less on the metrics of the time it took to accomplish that task. Less micromanaging and more seeing the big picture would improve the bottom line of this company.

    Hire a business consultant to troubleshoot your training program for the role of Certificate Specialist in order to find out the reason for the high turnover rate in the classroom/ work setting and how it is affecting your operations budget and company morale and reputation. Hire an experienced, articulate person specifically for the role of first point of contact for the Data Entry department, so the data entry specialists can concentrate fully on their job and a more professional impression of the company in general will be experienced by clients and customers calling in.

    Pros

    The environment is really good for people who really likes working. The culture and values are also impressive and they really did it!

    Cons

    Nothing really bad about this company. I really love working here. the benefits and the pension programs here are really good and they really take a care of you as their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think team work is really important and it is where you learn most of the professional skills from. Team work never hurt.

    Pros

    Nice people, flexible schedules allowing for work life balance. Plenty of resources to help with any issues. Continuous efforts to improve the way we do business.

    Cons

    Unable to successfully execute any major initiatives, which while appearing to be good steps forward, take us backwards and gets employees totally frustrated and not wanting to support new projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make people, senior people, accountable for failed roll outs.

    Pros

    I think the people at Marsh are great. It's generally a good environment where people work hard but have a sense of humor and are socially fun.

    Cons

    The salaries seem average at best. Definitely not known to be high payers. Try to get in at a high salary because even the merit raises are weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your top rated employees better pay. The recognition in this area is poor.
