    I have been working at Mercer full-time

    Pros

    Well-known company, opportunities to learn about consulting, clients, project management, sales, and strategy work.

    Cons

    Weak EVP, top priorities are revenue-based with little to no focus on career development, coaching or work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your employees, lead instead of drive, generate enthusiasm instead of fear.

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

    Pros

    Mercer's strength has always been it's ability to find and hire great people. This still holds true as the intellectual capital inside the building is very high. Mercer offers good benefits. Mercer is still a good name with other employers.

    Cons

    Mercer hires great people, however, they really struggle with what to do with them once they are employees. Training of any substantive nature is an after thought (sink or swim!). Mercer implements changes, rolls out said changes, then realizes maybe some "training" is needed after a rough implementation or results do not meet expectations. Working above and beyond 40 hours/week is not "required" but if one wants to be promoted they will understand this unwritten rule. If you are not the right person's "favorite" then you will have little chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Constant cost-cutting and lack of direction really drags down morale.
