    Pros

    Enjoy department and direct managers. Good benefits. Challenging and dynamic work. Social atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lots of work, hard to balance while trying to move up. Not much transparency with pay or promotion/career path. Upper management makes lots of process changes that make day to day work harder for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who do the work/ broker the deals/ are in the systems day in and day out.

    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.

    Pros

    There really are none, discounted food? If you get lucky, your manager may actually want to train you. Good de minimis fringes

    Cons

    Company does nothing right, low pay and no responsibility, oftentimes you will find employees just sitting around chatting doing nothing because they have nothing to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to trust and compensate your employees, stop making managers managers because they know the CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people to work with.

    Cons

    Constant change, ever shifting priorities, lack of transparency from Leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change for the sake of change is not good. New hires with three year commitments do not benefit the long term health of the firm.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and pay. Many holidays. Working with large accounts and good people.

    Cons

    Poor Management and lots of favoritism. You are a just a number at Marsh as no job security. They lay off good employees and keep others for no good reason. I worked hard and received great reviews and praise but got laid off with other people. I thought my job was secure and was shocked about getting the axe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your most valuable asset - Your employees.
