    Pros

    Outstanding benefits with leaders that truly care about the team, our clients, and go the extra mile to ensure we ALWAYS deliver quality! I know I have been blessed to be working for MMC!

    Cons

    I feel we have an opportunity to move towards the 21st century more regarding flexibility and enabling more roles to be mobile / work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Continue celebrating your colleagues and the phenomenal (internal & external) things they do every day!

    Pros

    Marsh has established itself as a powerhouse in the marketplace. People recognize that and they can use that leverage to their benefit. The culture and company values are great. The company really cares about their people, and it is always priority number one. Leadership is the best in the business, and they are always looking to better the company, their employees, and grow. There is also lots of potential to move laterally into many different sectors of the company if you do your due diligence.

    Cons

    If you are in an entry-level position, the compensation and time off are not ideal. However, you know what you are getting into. It takes a little longer than expected to move into a promotion or another role in the company. Everything at this company takes awhile to gain movement, as in they are slow to make decisions.

    Pros

    Compensation, collaborative culture, professionalism, global opportunities

    Cons

    Compliance can bog down the truly meaningful work, but it's minor and necessary

    Pros

    Working in IT is never boring- competitive pay, job security, and daily challenges to keep work interesting.

    Cons

    You work with people who have just become used to their daily routines, can be extremely condescending to support staff, and are already somewhat jaded with their expectations (even though they also refuse to follow processes). Being client facing tends to be a "punching bag" role that quickly gets old. People tend to become "buddy-buddy" to skip procedure yet tend to not know your name.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits
    Leadership and vision
    Company profile and external recognition
    Global brand
    Strong ethical values & excellent diversity and inclusion drive

    Cons

    1) Some existing employees have been here to long and are stopping the new leadership to implement the much required change. Stop moaning and move on guys, let us make this place better without your nagging...
    2) Brand could be a bit more visible externally
    3) work life balance....hmmm...that's tricky, however again if you want to progress and get to the top this is a sacrifice in many other organisations too

    Advice to Management

    Be tougher on low perfromers and sickness to create room for people who would love the opportunity to work here!

    Pros

    Great Colleagues. The benefits are amazing and the leadership is the best in the industry. The company is worldwide and has more of a partnership philosophy. The colleagues in my office have an average of 25 years experience in the industry and take pride in their job. The knowledge among the colleagues and teams are a huge asset and a great resource.

    Cons

    The challenges are the company is large and there a several processes to work through get a simple task completed. This in result makes it very difficult to manage a task or project in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who are out there actually working with the clients. Those individuals know what the clients want and how they want the services delivered.
