      Pros

      The best thing about working at Mercer is interacting with the students. Mercer students are the best of the best. The support you get from co-workers and supervisors are also an extremely motivating and great part of the job.

      Cons

      Personally, I enjoy this about working in a college setting, but many people do not, you never know what you will be doing from day to day when you go to work.

      Pros

      The Business School has great students and wonderful connections to the community. So much potential.

      Cons

      Leadership - on several levels - is riddled with misleading, off-the-record draconian methods that inevitably force a high turnover rate, which unfortunately seem to be gender specific.
