Great company but not enough focus on human capital

I worked at Mercer full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedule, ability to take control of projects, great atmosphere, and great people. Managers and Team Leads will often let you take charge of a project. The company is very group-oriented, so you have the support of others around you.

Cons

The company does not care enough about keeping its good, strong employees. Depending on the client, you can get stuck in a role indefinitely. They do not do enough cross-training on the clients to allow people to move around and do different things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Live up to promises and place people where they desire to be. Hire effective supervisors who are good with people management and care about the needs of their subordinates.

    Pros

    Quick money, overtime more than available.

    Cons

    Most hiring at the Norwood office is done through a few temp agencies with a farm of workers, which in turn allows emotional managers the ability to fire you without cause. A revolving door, at least half of new hires through the temp agencies won't last a month. Not allowed to look at cell phones on the floor. Two 15 minute breaks monitored very CLOSELY. Heck they may even count the amount of times that you go to the bathroom.... not kidding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't say much, its very cost effective for the company so business wise, they are doing a hell of a job. They have mastered how to get the last second of labor from each and every employee.
