An exciting position that was varied and interesting
Divisional Director Human Resources (Former Employee), SandtonApril 10, 2013
Pros: an exciting company to work for.
Cons: none reallty often had to work long hours but was always rewarded
At March I had a team of 5. Payroll manager, HR Manager,
SDFacilitator and administrator who was also the Company Secretary.
Very difficult to describe a typical day at work, as a generalist it was varied from managing all the vacancies and linking in with Agencies on our specs.
Overall checking and signing off on the payroll,
Pension and benefits liaising – more... with our providers
I did not find any of this position difficult having held Snr HR Management positon before.
What was really exciting was setting up their HR from a 0 base.
I am very straighforward and can deal with any situation and enjoyed each day for the challenges that it brought. – less

Productive and fun workplace with a great work/life balance
Central Zone Administrator (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH and Chicago, ILApril 4, 2013
Pros: benefits package, work/life balance, felxible schedules, back up care assistance
Cons: constant rstructure and change in management which sometimes delayed promotions
In facilities management each day brings it own agenda. I began each day with a list of "To Do's" that were a minimum requirement for the day but always left room for the unknown. When managing a zone of 20 offices, something is bound to require immediate attention requiring flexibility on my end. The colleagues and management at Marsh made this a non – more... issue as everybody is working towards the "Common Good" of the company and its reputation. The hardest part of the job was meeting tight deadlines within real estate transitions which we always met. This also became the most rewarding part of the job when we could sit back at the close of a project, see and feel our success. Marsh is truly a great place to work and do business with! – less

Nice company, but not very organized. The office is extremely divided. Contracting companies that work with MMC do not follow the MMC culture or guidelines as they should.

Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee), Urbandale, IAFebruary 22, 2013
Marsh is a zenith company which has its principals which it sticks to.
People are very proactive and professional towards work, though they treat everyone very well and care for each other.
It has been really a great experience at onsite while working directly with my client.
They are supportive, patient & caring.

Work on client websites such as HTML code editing, CSS style changes, e-marketing, and graphic design.

Co-workers were other interns whom I would interact with in order to develop sites and other marketing materials for our superiors. Management was – more... very open and was always willing to console and teach when necessary. – less

Poor Management, HR is a joke, constant lay-offs
Specialist (Current Employee), Austin, TXDecember 15, 2012
Pros: vacation
Cons: everything else, work environment hell
Employees were more knowledgable about their jobs than upper management, very political. Micro-management is the management style. Constant lay-offs and turn-overs.

Laid off 1st day back from maternity leave
Marketing Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYDecember 13, 2012
After almost 6 years of dedicated service to the firm, got laid off my first day back from maternity leave. Heartless management with no appreciation for their employees. During the 6 years only got 1 raise which i'm sure is way behind the industry standard. Would not recommend working here.

Lots of learning about insurance
Management was completely unfair to employees
Lots ofd bullying happened here even though I complained nothing was taken care of..
