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

    Pros

    Friendly people, middle of NYC so plenty to do, nice office space, access to local and regional resources.

    Cons

    Siloed management, promotions were not always merit based. Peter priniciple in middle and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back then, I would have told them to concentrate on increasing revenue as opposed to cutting costs (reducing head count). Look at employee throughput, not just gross revenue.
