Best 25+ years of my career at Mercer!

4.2 of 5 stars

Executive in Human Resources | San Francisco, CA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The people!

Comments

Among other things, this is a great company for someone that is highly skilled and/or eager to learn, ambitious, a self-starter who doesn't require alot of hand holding, likes to work with people (colleagues and clients alike), likes challenges, is flexible to changes, and doesn't take things too seriously (e.g., likes to have some fun)!

Great firm, slowed by red tape

The people, the variety, and the flexibility

Downers

Lack of proactive compensation adjustments, leadership can feel tone-deaf

Comments

This is a great place to start your career, but if you get options at a higher tier consulting firm, take it.

Great experience, but some reservations in past few years

The opportunities and the people

You will get out of your career at Mercer what you put into it! Opportunities abound, but they will not be handed to you (nor should they be)

Treated me well and gave me good opportunities

2.9 of 5 stars

Experienced in Financial Services | Saint Louis, MO | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

casual work atmosphere, flexible work schedules and locations

Downers

there has been a slight feeling of "hard work rarely gets rewarded" and "promotions are hard to come by" unless you are a client facing consultant

Comments

new employees are treated very well with competitive compensation packages

Health and Benefits growth and changes

3.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

some good people to work while it can be hit or miss depending on the office and team you are aligned to

Downers

a number of new team members without extensive benefits or consulting backgrounds, still growing and learning as group changes and adjust roles and responsibilities

Comments

company is in a state of transition, a lot of growth and changes happening

Great place to begin a career, a political minefield as one advances

2.0 of 5 stars

December 2014 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Mercer attracts very bright and dedicated consulting professionals, many of whom are great mentors. It's a great place to begin a consulting career that can also lead to positions in client companies. The issues that Mercer addresses, retirement security, efficient health care benefits design and delivery, and talent development are important issues in the competitive marketplace faced by many companies. In that regard, the work is fascinating.

Downers

Problem is with top management where a series of CEOs have been parachuted in from other industries (mainly insurance) and who have no background in the business and are managing to quarterly earnings goals. There has been considerable turnover at senior levels of the organization. The atmosphere at the more senior levels is management by fear.

Comments

Investments and health care benefits are growing. Talent is in disarray. International investment is under a great deal of pressure given the recession in Europe and the significant investment costs of expanding in Asia (which Mercer does not seem to be willing to make).
