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

    Pros

    -Great pay... You can negotiate what it will take to hire you...
    -Very good benefits...
    -Lots of time off... close the office 1/2 day before the holiday for example
    -Work remote or from on of the other offices around the country

    Cons

    -Most employees are in it for themselves... You need to have a huge ego to survive or enjoy being very self centered
    -There is ZERO training, honest!!
    -Very poor LOB leadership... How some of these folks make it to a leadership role is amazing... stunning actually...
    -Leadership does not believe in the performance review process... you put your plan in place, have it signed off by your manager and then witness them never reviewing and using it as planned... Amazing exercise in wasting time
    -Expect a RIF (reduction in force) 2-3 times per year

    Advice to Management

    Stop the facade of wanting to be a sales organization... It will never happen...
