I worked at Marsh full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very stable company. Good atmosphere, with a sincere non-assuming feeling.

Cons

Too much emphasis on metrics and the actual time taken to complete a task, in the use of Siebel time management program.

Advice to Management

Put the emphasis back on what is actually accomplished daily by an employee and less on the metrics of the time it took to accomplish that task. Less micromanaging and more seeing the big picture would improve the bottom line of this company. Hire a business consultant to troubleshoot your training program for the role of Certificate Specialist in order to find out the reason for the high turnover rate in the classroom/ work setting and how it is affecting your operations budget and company morale and reputation. Hire an experienced, articulate person specifically for the role of first point of contact for the Data Entry department, so the data entry specialists can concentrate fully on their job and a more professional impression of the company in general will be experienced by clients and customers calling in.

    Pros

    Good Company to work for.

    Cons

    There are a lot of changes in Senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the colleagues that are client facing and have the day to day contact. They are the ones keeping those clients at Marsh.

    Pros

    Huge company with plenty of room to grow & move. With so many offices worldwide, you are able to really work where you'd like, if your position & experience allows it. Currently am working on going to Africa for a month with a former school group and working with Marsh to work remotely and with the African offices.

    Cons

    Very political, as you would expect from a company of this size. The tasks of a Client Rep are very boring, as you are basically half a step above an intern. It helps to learn the business, but be prepared for monotonous task. Also, a very rigid company. They call themselves the "Harvard of Insurance," and their track record stands behind it. That also means you get that stiff, sometimes stuck-up attitude from people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to more of what happens behind the curtain, there have been times where the little things are looked past, and that can really ruin a company if done enough.
