I have been working at Mercer

Pros

benefits, casual work environment, dress casual, friendly work environment, people are nice to work with, professional atmosphere and diversity of staff, flexibility of lunches, etc. Every other Friday off at 1:30 for select employees.

Cons

used to have 37.5 hour work week, recently changed to 40 hours, no salary increase for year 2009 (company wide) and minimal salary increase for 2010. Moral of employees seems a bit disgruntled at times, due to lack of communication, workload and other deciding factors. No actual training department, so your pretty much on your own. No formal HR/benefit/401k overview..must call 800# for more info on the subject.

Advice to Management

More hands on approach needed. Recognition programs within the center would be a great asset. Less meetings and more attention to what matters most, which are the employees who need assistance.

    Pros

    Mercer is very collegial. People are pleasant and willing to help. Good place for a career if you are comfortable with mediocre pay and decent work/life balance

    Cons

    I don't think its a very driven culture. There is limited growth at the company and leadership has pretty much stagnated.

    Advice to Management

    Mercer is an organization purely driven by process............it has no entrepreneurial drive and there is way too many levels of management for a professional services firm


  2. Good place, smart people

    Pros

    Smart people, fair evaluation/feedback, good perks

    Cons

    Lots of work duplication. Too much emphasis on the Mercer way and not enough entreprenurship

    Advice to Management

    Some consultants are better managers than others. Some don't care about the analysts.
