    Pros

    Pay that's more than minimum wage or working retail

    Outdated computer software and systems, team under staffed, frequent turn over, constantly prioritizing work to meet the most urgent deadlines, training for new hires is inadequate. Attendance rules are strict. Budget only allows for four or five people on a 15 member team to hold above entry level positions.

    Nice new Building. Some colleagues are genuine

    Cons

    People seem nice but most are back stabbers

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work in the Austin, TX office. The training is really good, the benefits are great, the people are really good to work with. I also like that the company sponsors many efforts for good causes. We are also very focused on process improvement so I like that I have an opportunity to work in that area.

    Cons

    I would say upper management decision making from corporate. It would be good to be more timely with decisions even if it is a no response.

    Advice to Management

    Be more timely with decision making and be more transparent. Employees are smart and if you are logical then just communicate the direction we are taking.
