Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Mercer full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good colleagues, chance to work on excellent projects, fair compensation.
One of the leading players in C&B and HR consulting.
Global player.
Good client base.

Cons

No longer number one.
Did not keep up with Towers Watson and Big Four.
Promoted the wrong people to senior management and partner level.
Lost major clients because of the above reasons.
Not strong on developing employees.

Advice to Management

Stop defending the privileges of your Global Partner Club (mainly NY based) or you will loose more of your best people to the competition.
Worked for you almost 10 years: Most of the good colleagues are now working as C&B managers or for the competition.
I brief Mercer less & less.
