    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.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Fair management (i.e., not micromanaged). Decent benefits. Time off is generous. Most colleagues are willing to collaborate in a way that allows one to thrive and grow.

    Cons

    Pay could be better aligned with the industry. Some "old school" mentality where workers feel threatened by active and hungry talent. More mentoring of younger associates needed.
