Pros

Smart, progressive and strongly value based culture. Good compensation package. Reasonable career advancement opportunities at junior levels

Cons

Limited opportunities for mid to senior level staff unless you are an actuary.

Advice to Management

Recent changes seem short sighted. Take a long term view and invest in product innovation.

    Recent years have seen management become so far removed that local office doesn't see to have any real leadership.

  2. Mercer is an HR Services company that struggles with best practice intent with little follow through on local level.

    Pros

    Can be a very good experience for outside hires, but it can be frustrating due to a lack of internal candidate development.

    Cons

    More commitments made than there is adequate staff and training to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more from within and dedicate more follow through in that regard.
