    I worked at Marsh full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative, client focused, "journey to elite" organization. Willing to be accountable and engaged with results -- trying to build a consistent training and professional development pathways for employees.

    Cons

    Complex organization with frequent leadership changes that may undermine organizational efficiency and client servicing. Overly focused on analytics without regard to best fit for client and/or value of analytics relative to meeting client's objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify organizational structure so that clients easily understand company value proposition and framework for client engagement.

    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.
