Hear what our people have to say about careers at Marshall & Sterling...


As a young professional, Marshall & Sterling has not only given me the platform to succeed but also provided me with the best market advantage to not place a limit on my success.  They encourage me to utilize my strengths, stay community focused and teach me how to leverage our unique portfolio of tools and resources to best guide and protect  the employer groups I work with. I look forward to a long career with Marshall & Sterling as an Employee owner.” - Whitney Pangburn, Group Benefits, Employed since 2014

“The reason I love working here is I have friends that work at other agencies.  They are envious of what we can get done, the markets we have available and the options our insureds have.  We’re a one stop shop, and I could never go to another agency that doesn’t have our resources.  Once you have these resources you never want to be without them. The support from my branch manager and producers in my branch is immense in terms of always listening to what my question is no matter how odd it may be, and showing me the ways I should be conducting myself as a professional with no prior background in the industry.” - Brian Seigerman, Property & Casualty, Employed Since 2014

“Being at Marshall & Sterling gives you the freedom to build your own career within a great company! The opportunities are limitless and you get to create your own career path – the harder you work the greater the reward!“ - Kelly Sherman, Personal Lines, Employed since 2015

“Coming from a completely different industry, I was very apprehensive about making this big career move. However, that being said, ever since my first day at Marshall & Sterling, I have been made to feel welcome and “a part of”. The training, teamwork and support is beyond anything I could’ve imagined and definitely geared towards my success and ultimately the success of the organization as a whole. - Steven Pesola, Property & Casualty, Employed since 2017

“I have been in sales for nearly 20 years, more than 10 with Marshall & Sterling, and have never experienced the kind of support I have here.  There is a great team oriented feeling but at the same time I am given the independence and leeway that makes me feel like the owner of my own business. - Matt Cronin, Sales Management, Employed since 2009
