I have been working at Marsh full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Huge company with plenty of room to grow & move. With so many offices worldwide, you are able to really work where you'd like, if your position & experience allows it. Currently am working on going to Africa for a month with a former school group and working with Marsh to work remotely and with the African offices.

Cons

Very political, as you would expect from a company of this size. The tasks of a Client Rep are very boring, as you are basically half a step above an intern. It helps to learn the business, but be prepared for monotonous task. Also, a very rigid company. They call themselves the "Harvard of Insurance," and their track record stands behind it. That also means you get that stiff, sometimes stuck-up attitude from people.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to more of what happens behind the curtain, there have been times where the little things are looked past, and that can really ruin a company if done enough.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Resources and depth of knowledge. They can do anything the client asks them to, just need to locate the correct person.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Take a plan and stick with it.

    "Changing strategy and market conditions cause the layoff of quality control department. There were too many chiefs."

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work schedule including work at home, and colleagues were great to work with.

    Cons

    Change in strategy in New York doesn't filter down to the lower levels, until it is too late. I believe our department was set up until the technology became available to do our job at lower cost, and then we were let go. I have a good idea that was the strategy from the get-go.
