    No respect

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Sydney

    ProsN O T H I N G

    ConsCIO, Program Manager, IT operation lead, team leaders (except idiots) all resigned.

    One day, 7 people were called into a meeting room and terminated by being given 10 mins to pack things and asked to leave the premises.

    They think people are numbers and figures to be disposed/recycled by replacing with the cheap off-shore. Their aim is not to build the foundation by integrating people, but make the quarterly number look good by sacking people and cutting expenses. There are in the game of cost cutting by sacrificing people. They will see the result in 3 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHopeless.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Immature & Irresponsible

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sydney

    ProsThe chance to handle broad range of works give opportunities to grow if you are willing to invest time and work longer. The chance comes because Marsh put workloads of more than one person can handle so that to reduce the headcounts and expenses.

    ConsMarsh has no interest in knowledge transfer, improve employee, treat colleagues fairly. Good people have left and bad remain, then keep hiring wrong people. Classic pattern for an organization to collapse. There is no sense of responsibility and ethics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo hope for improvement. Needs to hit the bottom to realize the reality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unlimited resources, just not directed correctly.

    Advisory Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsNice people, flexible schedules allowing for work life balance. Plenty of resources to help with any issues. Continuous efforts to improve the way we do business.

    ConsUnable to successfully execute any major initiatives, which while appearing to be good steps forward, take us backwards and gets employees totally frustrated and not wanting to support new projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake people, senior people, accountable for failed roll outs.

    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.

    Account Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    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

    Many fine, talented people that are frustrated by lack of leadership

    Senior Vice President (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsResources, talent, bench strength, market leverage, collaborative

    ConsToo many initiatives that never get completed. Basic accounting, invoicing and reporting is below par

    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

    ConsCompany does nothing right, low pay and no responsibility, oftentimes you will find employees just sitting around chatting doing nothing because they have nothing to do

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to trust and compensate your employees, stop making managers managers because they know the CEO

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
