    Pros

    Marsh spares no expense for their employees. Tenure runs very high in the office to prove how much Marsh values their employees. The training process is comprehensive, inclusive, and every detail has been thought out. Staff is committed to a team environment and supporting each other. Resources are always available to help out employees. There is a high degree of professionalism in the office.

    Cons

    Being a very large company, there are many processes and workflows you have to learn to do your job correctly. Once you learn them it's no big deal. I really can't think of any major cons to working at Marsh.

    Pros

    The Marsh brand is a big name in insurance and carries a lot of weight with clients, carriers, and others in the industry. There are lots of resources available to you if you know where to find them. You will have access to many talented and experienced colleagues.

    Cons

    Change comes slowly in a large organization like this. There is little thought given to the size or makeup of the book assigned to you. Work/life balance issues. Management ranges from excellent to incompetent (and everything in between).

    First years of employment were good

    Pros

    Company looks good on paper but locally is a mess. Management is very selective to certain employees and to what they want to hear. This includes management that they report to that are in the east coast. Las Vegas is a Call Center environment. Promises and promises and nothing happens

    Cons

    Good benefits, good colleagues to work with. Hmmmm.....nothing else I can say

    Great place to work if you have the cojones!

    Pros

    It's a huge company with the big opportunties that come with that - Marsh will support you if you want to change departments, change offices, change jobs - I know as I've done this several times! Marsh is good to good employees - you just need to be willing to be in charge of your career - Marsh encourages education and growth. If you find the right niche, you'll be very happy at Marsh.

    Cons

    Marsh is a huge bureacracy - long-winded forms are needed to do just about anything internal or external - there's definitely a "who you know" vibe at this company - you need to be aggressive and outspoken about what you want and where you want to go in the company - management will not guide you, you need to be able to guide yourself and this does not work well for everyone.

    MMC is potentially a great place to build the best, but long term leadership is needed.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Teamwork, knowledge sharing and the work-life balance of the insurance industry. Senior folks regularly acknowledge the work of subordinates and almost shy away fom taking credit for the work of others.

    Cons

    High level of beurocracy, local chieftans and posturing, resistance to thinking outside the box at the day to day level. There have been so many fits and starts overt the last few years that people are wary of anyone touting solutions - potentially a disaster brewing but for the fact that most employees, those looking to create wealth and value, not simply take it, are team players willing to build for the the sake of being part of something larger than themselves.

    It's not the worst place I've ever worked...

    Pros

    My position is stable (as stable as anyone's at any organization). I have been in the insurance industry for more than 25 years and Marsh is hopefully where I will end my career in insurance. Being in a smaller office has it's advantages - we are truly more like a family.

    Cons

    Hear that times are hard and raises will be minimal if at all - then we are bombarded with correspondence about new positions being created...

    Good for the right personality

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great work / life balance. The office managers understand that employees should have a life outside of the office and it is encouraged. There are a lot of "good" people here that mean well.

    Cons

    Compensation is difficult to increase. Once you get in, expect only 3 to 5% each year - at most! Also, if you want to move up in the firm, over time, you will need to go to New York or London. Also, cross team discussions and/or cross sales are few and far between - the firm is very siloed. Politics are also a major issue in the office. Many managing directors simply do what is asked of them but lack leadership and accountability.
