    Pros

    Great peers, the opportunity to work with great managers

    Cons

    Very little control over your career, low pay and very few opportunities to improve pay. While there are some great managers there are many more bad managers who do no succession planning or career development.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on the IGNITE principals in terms of talent.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, though the employee contribution has increased dramatically. Lots of online learning resources, but you'll never have time to use them.

    Cons

    Running too lean for too long, EVERYTHING is driven by increasing shareholder value. Managers not permitted to hire to fill vacant positions, which increases workload for everyone else, no time for planning, just reacting to stay afloat. Mgmt plays games with incentives so people think they are qualified and then another office's bad numbers are combined with ours to drag ours down at review time. I/T makes decisions in a vacuum, spending boatloads of money on inefficient and clumsy technology.

    Advice to Management

    You are pushing good people out the door by overloading them and limiting their ability to do their jobs. You hire people who are experts in their fields, and bury them in administrative work, most of it internal compliance, so they are unable to focus on client needs.

    I worked at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    Huge company. We'll run from a business stand point. Growing global company with areas in every field of business. Large network of successful subsidiaries.

    Cons

    It has been a while so things may have changed. Little opportunity for growth and advancement during my time. Only direction was for management.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much advice to be given as management was aware of most issues. There was a lot of focus on current job and not enough focus on potential career opportunities.
