    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.

    I have been working at Mercer full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Doesn't Recommend
