    I worked at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    If you're lucky you'll work with a good team of people. Convenient if you live close to the office too.

    Cons

    Unsociable hours, you always work on bank holidays. Management is generally poor with a lack of guidance. Some colleagues are paid overtime and others aren't.

    Work culture is steadly degrading and internal politics is becoming very strong
    Incompetent people occupy key positions
    HR is for name sake
    Not a company for straightforward person
    Quality of work is also low grade and seniors do not support
    Every one too busy to suck up to superiors for self growth

    Pros

    Better than Unemployment... The people are generally good people, but have a tendancy to turn on you to cover their butts. The benefits are good, vacation time is easily used, and the paychecks are always on time! Unfortunately, there are not many nice things to say about a company circling the drain.

    Cons

    Constantly changing priorities and rules. It's bloated size and enormous bureaucracy make it difficult to get anything meaningful done. There is a noticable lack of organized training on the myriad of ever changing IT systems making learning and sucessfully completing ones job difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront and honest with junior employees regarding the prospects of future career growth.

    Pros

    Vacation time is great for the Undergrad entry level program.
    Very much a 9-5:30 job.
    Client interaction early.
    Exposure to many different industries.
    Would be a great starting point if you plan to remain in the insurance industry.

    Cons

    Training is terrible, there are no hard technical skills learned on the job that are transferable outside of the insurance industry.
    A lot of busy work, no actual skills training.
    The program itself and your development greatly depends on your direct supervisor. Not all are even decent at teaching or developing others.
    As mentioned in other reviews - promotions, schedule accommodations, expense accounts, Amex cards -are dependent on who you know and how much they like you.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to retain, challenge and promote youth with potential.
