    Former Employee - IT Project Manager  in  Norwood, MA
    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Norwood, MA

    I worked at Mercer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance - work from home as much as u want for some
    Nice people to work with, most are friendly
    The cafe is great
    Decent base pay but bonus not that great

    Cons

    The company is losing money like crazy. Get ready for more of this, "As part of our profitability improvement plan, we must ensure we have the most effective organizational model possible to serve our clients, optimize resources, and minimize costs. To help us achieve this goal, we have made the very difficult decision to implement a reduction-in-force in the US business." Layoffs are going to be around for a while until the right the ship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a plan in place and stick to it. Go easy on the poor suckers who stay around for the next 3+ years while a new H&B system is put in place

    I have been working at Mercer full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. There is no bright light at the end of the tunnel.

    Cons

    - past 7 years there has been constant turnover within Sr Management. (they all leave before their good names will be tarnished by not reaching goals)
    - benefits are horrible (MHRS 401k plan just terminated to save $4M) We are a retirement business
    - disconnect between Sr Management and workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully you can cut costs enough to sell us
