    Leadership is leftover from the shady Putnam days

    I worked at Mercer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you're lucky, you will receive your paycheck.

    Cons

    - It's a frat house, and yes, the sorority girls have crashed the party. They can be found in Human Resources, Training, and the perennial big bird in the administration areas. And, worse yet, they have been here FOREVER. People just haven't bothered to let them go (they actually keep them here laughing as their home lives are destroyed, bodies are completely ruined and knowing, once they leave, they won't remember a thing).

    - Constant change (there is nothing else to do, so they actually have meetings to see how they can "mix it up")

    - The spouses of leadership are your co-workers

    - You can't go to the bathroom without being questioned. It's almost like a prison, but you would have to imagine worse. And, I am sure people managing it have been released from actual prison.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign, shower, and start fresh somewhere else.

    Pros

    Local leadership emphasis on the work environment, personal development, and involvement; finding good mix between business orientation/results and having fun; much improved communication; more opportunities for recognition; strong focus on clients and quality work

    Cons

    Learning to collaborate with people across the office; getting used to new office layout; wish the company paid for parking;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The last two years has been exciting and mostly in a good way; keep up the good work
