I worked at Mercer as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Fantastic people, most are very nice and helpful
Work is meaningful and not too repetitive (real work for interns)
Intensive training mostly in Excel, and some in Access
Good environment to work and spend time in

Cons

Tough deadlines sometimes
Can be exhausting, but very fulfilling
The first 2-3 weeks can be slow since training sessions are spread out

    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
