    Training is supported (ACII, CFA etc) but this is standard across all of the big three brokers

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good exposure to high market value clients early in career
    - Looks good on CV to have worked at a globally leading company
    - Possible opportunities to work at other offices abroad

    Cons

    - Awful salary reviews (After my first full year of working long hours, passing professional exams, winning new business, I received no salary increase and a very small bonus. Second year - 1% salary increase (less than inflation!!)
     - I understand that a company of this size will be strictly regulated, particularly following past transgressions, but, in my opinion, Marsh are overly compliant.

    I have been working at Marsh full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Support through CPD and Professional Development.
    Training process for new starters is of a good standard.
    Variety of opportunities due to the size of the company

    Cons

    Poor salary in terms of industry average causes experienced/valued staff to seek alternative employment to further their salary progression and lose depth of knowledge because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay an amicable salary to start with. Be proactive rather than reactive.
