    Overworked in relation to pay, limited job security, little room for advancement.

    I worked at Mercer full-time (less than a year)

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
