I have been working at Marsh

Pros

Great access to data/industry expertise and resources. Marsh has a capability that is beyond compare in these areas.

Cons

Marsh has developed minimum standards for servicing placements. Some of these requirements are excellent and obviously needed. However, as far as servicing to the individual client, it often gets in the way of what might be in the best interest of the client by burdening the team with administrative work which hinders servicing needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Marsh's practice of promoting from within is commendable. However, great insurance brokers do not make great managers. Often they are placed within the position without being prepared for the human relation requirements that are needed for the position. I would like to see training provided to these managers so they are prepared with the tools for the job. Invest in the human capital and they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Great resources, very talented people, exposure to great clients. Brand name in the industry and the opportunity to work on significant projects.

    Cons

    A 9 to 5 culture, lots of legacy employees, very disparate levels of talent. No compensation transparency, the office is too small for personal growth

    I worked at Marsh full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most team members were amazing

    Cons

    Several team members with mental health issues seriously intervening in quality of work and human relations made everyday work very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not put team management responsibility in the hands of managers who have no ability or will to properly run a team.

    Encourage independent thinking and reward effort with advancement opportunities.

    Get rid of employees with mental health issues when work is impacted or find ways to encourage them to constructively improve.
