    Pros

    they treat people baddly so they are forced to pay better than average wages. I would rather take a much lower paying job than stay there, which is what I did.

    Cons

    Management is horrible, no leadership at all.
    You are a resource to be consumed then disposed of. I worked there for 2 years in that time my location had a turnover rate (voluntary) of ~ 40%

    Advice to Management

    learn how to treat people with respect. we do not exist only to serve the company. there is no work life balance. managemant plays favorites all the time.

    Pros

    Decent benefits comparable with market place.

    Cons

    Very political environment
    Senior mgmt in region is incompetent
    Finger pointing is the name of the game although at the surface people try to be nice, but there is a lot of back stabbing and layig of blames. The buck does not stop at who's accountable as they would like to sell
    Zero transparency mgmt style
    Do not believe in staff and staff development and retention.Prefers to look outside rather then develop internally
    Very underhanded in managing people
    Fire fighting mode at all times because managment is very shortsighted in what needs to be done to resolve issues in the long term.
    Senior mgmt expects to know everytime u sneeze. Micro mgmt and Mgmt likes to mangage all the way down to the lowest level resulting in constant firefighting or daily incidents, but conveniently ignore the larger picture for long term sustainability
    All lot of talk, but dont believe them cos they chage everyday
    The IT organisation needs to deperate overhaul of its senior mgmt if they ever want to be successful

    Advice to Management

    Do not micro manage
    Tackle to bigger and strategic issues for long term sustainability
    Develop your people
    Trust your people
    Plan

    Pros

    Well if your lucky to get a bonus then that is one of the best reason to work at Marsh USA inc.

    Cons

    Lack of communitcation, leadership, ownership of responsability. Micromanagement... i.e. what did you do yesterday , why did it take you an hour to complete a project that should have only taken u 15 mins. Having supervisors walk around to ensure your at your desk. Losing best talent because no money, yet Marsh had one of the best years in 2009.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth and maybe they will stick around longer.

    Pros

    some good talent still there.....not for long though

    Cons

    way to many to list

    Advice to Management

    back to the drawing board....might want to pay closer attention to keeping colleagues who actually create revenue on the team. Middle Management and tenuered MDs are a joke....everyone on the outside is laughing at you.

    Pros

    To get the basis fundamentals of insurance and risk managment.

    Cons

    Moral is low, upper management cuts expenses (ie cheaper office supplies, holiday potlucks) but the higher level positions are still allowed to spend enormous amounts of money for traveling. People are promoted not based on merit or hard work but instead of how connected you are in the company. Too many politics and egos that trickles down to the cr's who are left with all the work.

    Advice to Management

    I would say hire more innovative fresh minds that challenge the normal functions.

    Nice new office and equipment. Regular to good benefits.

    Most employees are like robots that agree with all that management says and talk bad behind their backs after they agreed with their ideas

    Advice to Management

    Very difficult. You have to have popularity with management.
