    You learn many things but you become jack of all trades and master of none

    Investment Analyst (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsThere is frequent client interaction due to fund manager evaluation meetings. You get experience in many aspects ranging from excel spreadsheets, writing market commentaries, portfolio evaluation, presentation etc.

    ConsThe work is routine at times and slightly political in nature. Sometimes, you feel that it is too slow and would rather work in a faster-paced environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent but not great environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStrong growth in AUM. Helpful that it is part of a larger, more diverse corporation that has been willing to commit capital to growth of the unit.

    ConsManagement very secretive. Lots of closed-door discussions and little solicitation of employees opinions regarding strategy. Long-time employees are given opportunities over more-qualified and competent newer employees. Inexperienced executive management that has only really lived in the world of investment consulting (not management) and actuarial number crunching.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually do something about the politics. Find a way to cut through the bureaucracy. Involve employees in decision making process.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A Good Place to Start your Career

    Investment Analyst (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsAt Mercer, there was a serious learning curve, especially since I was new to the industry. However, the employees there were helpful and patient with me. The hours were great and I really bonded with my workmates.

    ConsIt's hard to make your role more exciting. The growth opportunities were not what I expected, and the compensation was not ideal there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee retention will go far.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
