I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than a year)
People are great - very genuine and want you to do well as an individual
Business strategy is moving in right direction to position for long-term success
Not as strong of a formal development structure. Most is on-the-job learning, can be hard to develop technical / hard skills given this gap of formal training / development (i.e. project management, excel, powerpoint, etc).
Processes / workload management - a lot of likely un-necessary work / data analysis internally vs taking actions
Advice to Management
Focus on time management and prioritization so colleagues are spending time on the 3-5 most important issues vs 15 trivial issues
I applied online. I interviewed at Mercer (Urbandale, IA).
I applied online and was emailed for a phone interview about a week later. The phone interview went into my background including periods of time when I wasn't working. After the phone interview I was told that someone would call and set up an in person interview which I had about a week later.
