    I have been working at Marsh full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers in my group are great in my group. Job stability.

    Cons

    Management is an old boys club. Unless you're a producer, don't expect an increase or bonus (no one seems to know how bonuses are calculated. Very heavy workload, no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the talent flight. Those who can leave do. When the company keeps reporting record profits, it's hard to justify no increases, and token bonuses. Stop saying our colleagues are our greatest assets...actions speak louder than lip service.

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Very little room to grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more incentives, right now there is very little reason to work harder as there is so little growth in pay.

    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.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Marsh

    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
