    I worked at Marsh full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Marsh is the biggest broker in the world and provides access to top-notch industry and risk experts. It is a great firm to learn about the brokerage industry. Colleagues all seem to really care about their clients. Very competitive benefits.

    Cons

    It can be hard to differentiate yourself in such a bureaucratic organization. Salaries in the industry are quite stagnant and Marsh is no exception to this trend.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership talks about developing colleagues, but falls short on implementation.
