    Pros

    Working for the largest broker in the world comes with its advantages. There are fun events.

    Cons

    The leadership is not very helpful. I have receieved little no guidance on my career. They offer critism with out guidance or suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to seek better leaders and train the ones that they have. Times are changing as are employees. Insurance is not the boy's club that it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes...oh no, you are just like the others. bottom line is like everyone has to think and act like the rest to be liked or wanted. If you are different, you are not wanted.

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

    Pros

    it seems hard to get fired unless you do something really horrible.

    Cons

    minuscule raises. extremely few opportunities for advancement. more red tape and bureaucracy than the US government. rigid process is the focus rather than getting things done.
    this company does not care about its employees AT ALL

    Advice to Management

    there's too much to say. if i felt like anyone actually cared to listen and would do anything about it, i would make an effort to help improve things. but that's less likely than flying pigs.
