Pros

The people are great. Good reputation in market. Fantastic client base.

Cons

Silo mentality means that different parts of the business do not all pull together for the common good. US ownership means that decisions are taken that may not be best in UK context. Can take a long time for changes to take place. Technology often not up to speed.

Advice to Management

Take more risk and encourage more junior staff to do the same.

    Pros

    Mercer its a multionational company, that provides you with a very large knowlegde base, and its a good professional school. Because it has different lines of business, you can learn always something new when working with colleagues of different areas in common projects. Mercer is recognized as a leading company for HR services, and that gives you a depth of expertise in your field of work.

    Cons

    Sometimes people are seen as objects and numbers. This is changing, but should be faster.

    Advice to Management

    People is what makes a company. Deal with your employees with respect, not only by the way you speak and work with them, but also with the salary you pay them, and they will work hard and be proud of it. If there is no investment on human capital there will be no growth for Mercer.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are no longer any good reasons to work at Mercer. It is merely a handy way of earning money to pay bills and have a life.

    Cons

    The culture of deceit and denial encouraged by incompetent management under the delusion they are being effective when they only care for their lick-spittals. It is a serious problem I know of so called IT Professionals in this who promise to do work, don't, it damages service to external clients and they then receive promotions through grades !

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people who tell what you would rather not hear with as much attention and concern as those who only ever tell you what you want to hear.
