Former Employee - Associate in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Mercer full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The development opportunities, both in terms of on the job experience and training and learning are great.
They are also willing to elp you move sideways into new roles teams, and even countries to help you further your career.

Cons

There is a lack of information on the company's plans and direction passed onto employees from senior leadership.
They are also not willing to empower managers to do what is needed to keep their best employees.
Quick to emphasize cost containment when the economy turned bad even for groups whose revenues were still strong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your managers, and employees

    Current Employee - Actuarial Intern in Louisville, KY

    I have been working at Mercer as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very personable, very professional. Living stipend of $1000. Interns have the opportunity to work overtime, and be reimbursed for Actuarial Exam expenses incurred after accepting the offer, but before the start date.

    Cons

    Deadlines and time constraints prove to be an obstacle when it comes to putting interns on a project. I was informed that Administrative Assistants are going to be hired on in the fall to do the work that I am doing as an actuarial intern.
