    I worked at Guy Carpenter full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great managers who take an interest to grow their employees. Excellent culture and I built some good relationships. Only reason I moved was because I wanted to try a different role on the underwriting side.

    Cons

    Pay was average slightly low. But the culture and experience made up for this... Money isn't everything!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to place your employees at the heart of the company. Just pay them a bit more...
