    The paid time off is great - best benefit here, and the most important to me. I do not need more than medical and dental coverage, and I have a high deductible plan - so, my insurance is very cheap. From what I have heard, higher level plans with family coverage aren't so affordable. I also get a 20% discount on my Verizon services.

    Benefits are overall ok. Company does not contribute toward the medical HSA account.

    The benefits offered at Mercer were exceptional. Multiple health insurances were offered including CDHPs and PPOs along with HAS accounts. Dental, vision, life, disability, etc. were all offered. Mercer offered a pension for vested employees along with a 401(k) that match up to have of 6% of employee contributions.

    For the first time since I have been employed at Mercer, we were given no opportunity to select a non-deductible HMO type health plan. We had to open an HSA and start paying into it at the begining of the year. For the first time ever, I canceled an appointment with my doctor because I did not have enough money in the HSA to cover the cost of the visit. Every plan has a deductible that you must pay out of pocket before coverage kicks in. This was an extremely unsettling and unwelcome development for my family. The 401K match is 50% up to 6%, although I heard that that is being changed

    Very affordable benefits. Best prices in the market

    Solid benefits program with many choices of plans and carriers provided through Mercer's private exchange.

    The only retirement benefit is a 3% match for 401k. You only get a pension if you work in consulting.

    Wide variety of insurance options, generous paid time off

    Good Health Insurance, However be careful. They can and did decide to instruct the insurance company to code something differently for me, so i would get charged more.

    I am a retiree with over 30 years of service. I was very disappointed that the Company eliminated the retiree medical program, although they did set up a spending account to partially compensate.
