    Lack of consistent leadership. Always changing the way things need to be done each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a plan and stick with it.

    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 (less than an 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.
