    I worked at Marsh full-time

    Pros

    Large company with lots of exposure to significant sized clients, particularly in wholesale; resource available (as former JLT, it was a significant difference as to what was available); some very good people around the business; good IT; discounted staff canteen; onsite GP; flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    Management largely disconnected to the reality - if it doesn't fit the Marsh model, then it will blow their minds, and your concerns will be ignored ("the Marsh way, or the highway") - sadly a couple of very good people fell into a quasi-specialty in our w/s team and suffered greatly as a consequence; process oriented; all decisions are generally top-down in approach (even if your team is consulted, generally middle management will proceed as they please if they dont like the feedback); much time is wasted in internal meetings; much money is wasted on gimmick initiatives around the business (e.g. motivational slogans etc.); pay rises not representative of the work that's being required; when support is needed, often ignored; resource available often missallocated to wherever the manager sees best, and not who needs it most; middle managers generally manage upwards - often portray a very different picture of events to senior managers vs what is actually happening; if any problems occur due to a middle management decision, expect it is your teams fault and all responsibility to fall on you; often more senior brokers given "team leader" type titles but these have limited meaning- you have no input into hiring decisions, pay, bonuses etc. So can often end up with a team you had no input im the hiring of.
