I have been working at Mercer
Pros – You can change to a new job or new location without having to change employers since there are locations worldwide and many different jobs and they would rather keep you with the firm than lose you to the competition.
Cons – Culture is more focused on cutting costs and less on keeping people happy and doing a great job for the clients than it used to be -- we still joke about the MMC CEO's speech about losing less expensive pens -- if our time is worth $200+ per hour to the client, why are we wasting our time begging for pens and figuring out on our own or asking consulting colleagues how to fix our technology problems because the IT support is useless?
Advice to Senior Management – Figure out what is stopping your good people from being more effective (ask them -- but not in those all-employee surveys since nothing ever comes of the results, so many of us who have been here a long time don't bother typing in the same comments to have them ignored again), and they will produce more.
