    I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work, majority of people are very motivated and professional. Senior management has been upgraded and is trying to change the culture in terms of rewarding performance. Lots of different opportunities but you need to look for them.

    Cons

    Identification and nuturing of potential in newer staff isn't really built in to the company's DNA. HR is pretty weak due to lack of mgt focus on it and drastically reduced staff in this area.

    A lot of your career potential can depend on who you work for and not necessarily on what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your own consulting advice, improve the HR function and properly staff it

    I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit encouraged
    Flexibility and virtual work environment
    Bonus plan, when fully funded, is generous

    Cons

    Questionable decision making at senior management level
    Flat organizational structure makes advancement difficult
    Need better sales people

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about revenue and implementing tiny clients on which the margins will never yield any profit. Also need to figure out a way to better leverage consulting business to help outsourcing thrive.
