Pros

Good salary. Opportunities to work around the world. Flexible schedule. Good benefits.

Cons

Too many layers. The hierarchy and senior management structure is confusing at best and ineffective at its worst.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care you people. They are your greatest (and perhaps the only) asset.

    I worked at Mercer

    Pros

    Great people-You're working with highly intelligent, ambitious, genuinely nice people!
    Work/Life Balance-As long as you meet deadlines, work hours are flexible.
    Supportive lower-level management

    Cons

    Senior Level Management-Drastic decisions and lack of good communication. One minute, they are spending tons of money on needless luxuries and then cutting entire offices the next minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions based on performance, not politics. Look at long-term sustainability, instead of short-term profit cutting.

    Pros

    The location offers multiple avenues of advancement. In addition, management will work with you it creating job paths that are not already available.

    Cons

    Pay... Hopefully that will change when the economy improves. Although I have heard from other employees that the pay doesn't ever get much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the people you have currently working for you. The grass is not always greener on the other side. (Especially, since we will be training them.)
