Some excellent thinkers and thought leaders made the whole experience a real development opportunity for me.

Cons

Limited career progression
Very conservative organization.
Dominated by actuarial practice with nineteenth century ideas about work practices.
Actual progression didn't match feedback.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve middle managment
Take a more realistic approach to twentieth century work practices.
Give consultants more credit for delivering exceptional client services.

    Pros

    Mercer has great health benefit selections for their employees. There are many great colleagues that you work with. Mercer also is very diligent about gaining and keeping business.

    Cons

    Mercer can many times scale down salaries and compared to other companies, it is much to be desired. There is also a decent level of turnover within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should strive more to be proactive about retaining it's good employees, which are lost many times. Numerous times as well, workloads can get out of hand and be very overwhelming and you are expected to fulfill these obligations placed upon you. However, that type of management and organizational style is not conducive within any type of organization.
