    I have been working at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    Senior execs has been really keen to provide me with an overview and tips into how to get things done in the Marsh way. Plus, luckily i got a really supportive manager as well. So far everything is going really well.

    Cons

    In terms of app access and etc seems to be really unorganized, but i guess because it is a big firm.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing for now.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    N O T H I N G

    Cons

    CIO, 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 Management

    Hopeless.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Marsh 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 Management

    No hope for improvement. Needs to hit the bottom to realize the reality.
