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

    Pros

    It's a great company that encourages career growth, has global opportunities, and good benefits. I enjoy my position and I am proud to be a part of a global company that supports my career and personal goals as well as my family.

    Cons

    It is a very large company that can be a bit cumbersome to navigate at times but there is always a highly skilled colleague who is friendly and willing to assist. I honestly, have not encountered even one con since my small, local company was acquired by Marsh. I would recommend anyone who has an interest or experience in the financial or insurance market to seriously consider Marsh as a long-term career opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity!
