    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    High pressure environment. Morale is low and people are normally cold (although there are exceptions to that). You're expected to learn things at a pretty fast pace. Plenty of people don't take the time to properly explain the work that they're delegating to you. Really not a laid back environment despite the company's claim that it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to train your analysts better when they enter the profession instead of throwing them into the fire. Also, make sure that your employees know what's expected of them before it's too late.

    Pros

    Great clients, some wonderful colleagues, interesting assignments if working on the "right" teams under the "right" leadership.

    Cons

    In recent years, the focus has changed from producing high quality information, to a focus on procedures that add time to the process and reduce quality. Slogans are posted on desks that say: "Don't let perfection get in the way of good enough." E&O issues are pushed under the rug. Clients will eventually catch on and Mercer's reputation will suffer. Those that care are worked to death while those that are just mediocre are somehow promoted. Leadership does anything but. It's a frustrating environment that is more like a sweatshop than a professional services firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership has lost their way. It is unclear from whom they are getting their advice, but if it continues, they will eventually hurt the business past the point of no return. Clients are beginning to notice the quality issues and something needs to be done to address them sooner rather than later. There is no such thing as "good enough."
