      Pros

      Lots of talent and strong brand credibility

      Cons

      Horrible benefits- misrepresented at time of hire. NO 401K MATCH FIRST YEAR!!! 4 YEAR VESTING PERIOD AFTER THAT. 5% ESPP EXTREMELY LOW! VERY HIGH TURNOVER, BE PREPARED TO DO YOUR JOB AND THE REST OF YOUR TEAMS' THAT LEAVES. Work here for a year- have a big brand name on your resume then cash it in at another brokerage with better work life balance, financial incentives, etc. Minimal training so be prepared to run with what you got, no employee development- all time is dedicated to putting out fires.

      Marsh Response

      Employee Engagement Manager

      Thank you for taking the time to provide your candid feedback and we’re sorry to hear about your experience with Marsh. We’re a people business and retaining the best colleagues is essential to what we do. We believe that our people do their best work in an environment where they feel valued and we strive to create a total rewards package that reflects this. The benefits plan comes in many forms, including ways to take care of your health, grow in your career and build financial security. There is no limit on how far our colleagues can go but we know that the journey of creating a workplace where all of the tools and resources available for development & growth are readily accessible is not always a perfect one. If you feel comfortable, we encourage you to continue this conversation with your HRBP as your feedback could help shape our processes moving forward.
