    I worked at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    Encourages furthuring your education as long as it relates to job.

    Cons

    Work life balance was not always there. If your manager didn't have a family to go home to at night, they couldn't understand having to leave to pick up sick children or pick up kids by a certain time at day care.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This a great, well-established company. Good people work here and the benefits are great and the time off is generous.

    Cons

    The pay could be a little better, but it's more than do-able.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My office supports offices around the country, and some other offices' co-workers could be better with communication.

    I worked at Marsh

    Pros

    less stressful than underwriting
    a lot better reputation and corporate than other brokers
    good communication within the company

    Cons

    you are paid min. 30-40% less than underwriters
    mid level management has been working there since forever
    once you get crossed with management, you shouldn't expect a bright career progress anymore

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too high turn over in the new generation,
    marsh needs to pamper the new generation talent
