Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only reason people leave the company is because of better opportunities in terms of pay. If something can be done to improve that, There will be no other company which can come close to Mercer in terms of employee retention.

    After working here for 10 years you become jaded with the organization because we've seen 6 CEOs in those 10 years.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Current CEO seems to be doing a good job (stock price is going up) and I think probably he's the best CEO we've had in a while. Keep it up.

    Cons

    Ironically, we're in the HR conulting business, but yet we can't solve our own HR issues such as career development, retention, leadership.

    With each new CEO they bring change and it's interesting to see the new executive team rearranging the patio furniture without much impact. I work in an emerging market and it's amazing how incompetent the senior leaders (expats) are in my market - no leadership, no accountablity, no engagement, no empowerment, poor communication - more than half the employees are zombied out. Shame on you ...and you know who you are!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the big boys and girls sitting in the ivory tower in NY - get to the front line of the action.
