I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Variety of projects, variety of personalities, majority of people are very intelligent. Top notch consultants.

Cons

Can easily work 80-90 hours a week. Billable hours, revenue brought in, revenue managed -- all goals keep going up.
Lots of egos.
Old school management.

Advice to Management

Find ways to reduce turnover instead of burning employees out and just replacing them and having to start over again.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance in some cases. There are some really smart, really helpful people that work here but they are few and far between.

    Cons

    The technology is in the dark ages and all management cares about is shipping as many jobs overseas as possible. The recent reorganization was poorly communicated, poorly planned and poorly executed.

    Advice to Management

    Start pricing your contracts correctly and stop letting sales people make promises we can't keep just to so we can say we won the business.
