Colleagues, nature of the work, flexibility of hours.

Downers

Staffing decisions are frequently made based on short-term decisions. Hiring freezes are frequent, even for entry-level colleagues who will take a year or two to train to be fully productive. There should be more local office flexibility regarding hiring decisions.

Great, rewarding sweat-shop

Comments

Mercer is a great place to launch a career. It provides for some valuable learning experiences and interesting clients and projects. It has some catching up to do in terms of the way in which it appeals to and retains millennials (lack of mobility opportunities and perks such as gym discounts, etc.). I think many people stay at Mercer because it is a prestigious firm with a lot of flexibility in terms of work/life balance. Many people leave early and continue their work at home and are free to make their own hours, as long as they are responsive to their clients.
