"The scheme emphasises that there will be many opportunities after the completion of the graduate programme. It is important to keep telling your line manager and coach of your career ambitions."
Graduate, Bristol
"It's hard to judge at this moment in time. We have been given goals that we need to meet to trigger career advancement. Only time will tell if you will progress when you meet goals."
Graduate, Woking
"I think there are good opportunities for recognition but, being such a small office, I'm not sure if there is much opportunity for promotion in the near future. However, Marsh has a huge number of opportunities overall and this encourages me. Rolling off the graduate programme, I should be in a good position within the office."
Graduate, Belfast
"During the graduate scheme, people are given the opportunity to do actuarial or CFA exams, which Mercer pays for. By the end of the graduate scheme, they will have a lot of knowledge that will help them to move up the ranks. However, it has not been made clear how this works in detail. There are lots of opportunities to work with different teams and the internal jobs board has lots of positions open all the time that people can apply for."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"There is a very structured hierarchy and clear signs of promotion opportunites."
Graduate, Manchester
"From grads who joined over the last ten years, most are in management roles now after finishing the grad scheme."
Graduate, London
"The first few levels are very positive whe it comes to progresion but there are more likely to be people hired in from outside during the later stages of your career."
Graduate, London
"The promotion possibilities are extremely transparent and the process is easy to understand. The graduate scheme has six-monthly reviews while other employees have a yearly review. Consistent competence allows you to be promoted swiftly throughout the company."
Graduate, London
