    Great people; lackluster pay

    Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI think the people at Marsh are great. It's generally a good environment where people work hard but have a sense of humor and are socially fun.

    ConsThe salaries seem average at best. Definitely not known to be high payers. Try to get in at a high salary because even the merit raises are weak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive your top rated employees better pay. The recognition in this area is poor.

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

    Terrible and you will feel like you're accomplishing nothing daily

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere really are none, discounted food? If you get lucky, your manager may actually want to train you. Good de minimis fringes
