    I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues Less travel than most consulting companies Challenging projects Wide variety of project work

    Cons

    Billable hours comprise majority of performance evaluation and are largely out of your control Culture is improving under new leadership, but is still inflexible, stuffy, bureaucratic Onboarding is horrible. It's sink of swim

    Advice to Management

    Make the culture more fun Reduce bureaucracy Improve onboarding and training Reward employees for quality of work, not just quantity of hours

    I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit encouraged Flexibility and virtual work environment Bonus plan, when fully funded, is generous

    Cons

    Questionable decision making at senior management level Flat organizational structure makes advancement difficult Need better sales people

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about revenue and implementing tiny clients on which the margins will never yield any profit. Also need to figure out a way to better leverage consulting business to help outsourcing thrive.
