Wrong place to start an actuarial career

Actuarial Analyst (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsActuarial study and compensation program is average

Consif you're an actuarial analyst, be prepared to be assigned to an overwhelming amount of clients where your skills are never used (Apparently, other Mercer locations actually have actuaries do actuarial work and their employees are happy).

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a lesson from other Mercer locations and assign people to roles they were actually hired to do. Use common sense!

    Pros: Almost unlimited career opportunities in terms of responsibility, relative autonomy, skill and knowledge development, leadership roles, speaking engagnements. Very well-organized with clear role differentiation and… Cons: Very difficult to have work-life balance due to an over-emphasis on metrics (billable hours, sales), resulting in long work hours. Even the most efficient workers… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
