    I worked at Mercer full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Mercer's strength has always been it's ability to find and hire great people. This still holds true as the intellectual capital inside the building is very high. Mercer offers good benefits. Mercer is still a good name with other employers.

    Cons

    Mercer hires great people, however, they really struggle with what to do with them once they are employees. Training of any substantive nature is an after thought (sink or swim!). Mercer implements changes, rolls out said changes, then realizes maybe some "training" is needed after a rough implementation or results do not meet expectations. Working above and beyond 40 hours/week is not "required" but if one wants to be promoted they will understand this unwritten rule. If you are not the right person's "favorite" then you will have little chance for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constant cost-cutting and lack of direction really drags down morale.

    Pros

    Mercer has an open door policy which makes it a great place to work. People are very approachable and you can feel comfortable asking questions. Therefore, you can learn a lot throughout your career.

    Cons

    Because this is a consulting company, the hours can be very demanding at times which makes it difficult to balance work and other activities.
