    I have been working at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    Pay that's more than minimum wage or working retail

    Cons

    Outdated computer software and systems, team under staffed, frequent turn over, constantly prioritizing work to meet the most urgent deadlines, training for new hires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.

    Advice to Management

    See cons above.
