I have been working at Mercator Advisory Group full-time (More than 5 years)Positive OutlookPositive Outlook
Great people. Overall, great place for client interaction, project work and building a personal brand. Interaction with folks at a senior level throughout the payments industry. High degree of independence (both good and bad -- see Cons). Another positive is a conservative growth approach.
No real training. Everybody is often working independently and not getting the best leverage from everything that is produced. Demands of consulting vs. research work is challenging to balance. The company is growing on a resource constrained model that is frustrating as the payments industry continues to expand.
Advice to Management
In general the firm needs more resources and managment to harness/drive growth and communicate more effectively.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Mercator Advisory Group (Maynard, MA) in March 2012.
Mercator Advisory Group sent me an email inviting me for an interview. When I arrived at the time they had requested, they had no idea who I was and were unfamiliar with my resume. Completely disorganized. I was given a very deep understanding of the company, but very few questions were asked. Genuinely nice people who strive for a work life balance. Good pay for a small shop.
I got the impression this would be a great fit for someone who is good at following specific instructions and producing reports that say exactly what upper management wants them to say. Very strong emphasis on communication and writing skills. Limited travel.
Mercator Advisory Group then set up an appointment time when they were going to call me and they never did call or respond to follow up emails. No feedback.
