"The insurance industry is behind in terms of diversity, particularly with regard to gender."
Graduate, London
"Marsh is a great campaigner for diversity in the workplace and many senior leaders who see our cohort comment on this fact. Retention and internal promotion are important values of Marsh."
Graduate, Bristol
"There seems to be a big push on gender equality with half of the graduate cohort being female. There are active colleague resource groups linked to mental health, the LGBTQ+ community and multi-culturalism, which is a positive factor."
Graduate, London
"I think we're making good steps and are certainly heading in the right direction, but the insurance industry as a whole is pretty archaic in terms of diversity and backwards in a lot of social aspects."
Graduate, London
"The Belfast office isn't too diverse, with almost everyone from the local area. However, I know that Marsh overall is very diverse and appreciates this as it brings new perspectives etc. I appreciate Marsh's investments in its 'clubs' and I am a member of both the Pride at Marsh group (being a regional champion) and also the Diversity group."
Graduate, Belfast
"The company is very generous with maternity/paternity leave. Flexible working arrangements also make it easier to balance family life alongside the job. There are some people with minority backgrounds and from the EU, but no people with (physical) disabilities. I believe Mercer's commitment to diversity in general could be improved."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Support is overwhelming here, with Pride flags on display throughout the office. 50% of the graduate intake were female and, from the exec board down, the gender balance is being worked on. Women are encouraged to take maternity leave and there are working-from-home days to reduce the cost of childcare."
Graduate, London
"I think the company takes diversity very seriously, although it clearly has a lot more work to do. The gender balance in my team and department is actually quite good, with women in a high number of senior management roles."
Risk Management, Graduate, London
