Pros

It is a great place to begin your career, as the compensation is in line with industry standards and in the human capital business, Mercer is king.

Cons

The new decision to make Analysts into hourly workers (discrepancy between Exempt and Non-Exempt) has created some derision from the more Senior members of the team.

Advice to Management

Take notice of the young, worthwhile talent being recruited each year and work hard to reward them and keep them on staff.
