    I have been working at Marsh (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Paid Time Off is generous.
    2. Medical and Dental benefits are phenomal (although employee costs increase annually).
    3. 401k match is generous (4% of annually salary plus a 50% match on the first 6% of employee's elected contribution)

    Cons

    1. Flat wages for 4 consecutive years which is equivalent to a 5% pay cut solely based on inflation only.
    2. Workloads have increased annually with the expectation that employees will check in on their vacation since there is no additional back up on most accounts.
    3. Marsh pressures its employees to donate to its charitable causes even when the company is personally contributing nothing to the cause. (and the company has a no solicitation policy)

    Advice to Management

    Marsh should pay it's employees wages that keep up with inflation. In addition, offices should stop pressuring its employees to personally donate to its charitable causes in light of the no solicitation policy. Tough times for the company also means tough times for the employees.
