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

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Strong 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    At 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.

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

    Employee retention will go far.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and flexibility. Smart and talented colleagues.

    Cons

    Average pay, no clearly defined career path, not sure how to get promoted within my department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics and define what you require to get promoted and get ahead. make the difference between top performers and middle of the road employees more than .5% on your raises.
