    Mercer has amazing resources and is viewed highly by the industry.

    Consider other employee values beyond sales and bottom line revenue.

    I worked at Mercer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people seem to down to earth and friendly but overall management - partners treat everyone who is not a Partner as dispensable.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Constant re-shifting, re-organizing, re-structuring and acquisitions. This is how the co. stays profitable - cost cutting and acquisitions. I guess they have a ton of cash on their balance sheet so they acquire new organizations and force "collaboration" at least in the human capital business.

    Advice to Management

    You are in the human capital business, at least pretend to care about your employees and not just dispense of them at a drop of a dime.
