Great place to begin a career, a political minefield as one advances
December 2014 | Current Employee


Uppers

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).

A firm with few leaders
November 2014 | Current Employee


Uppers

Many very bright individuals but all are individual contributors. Good thought leadership.


Downers

Severe lack of resources. Have cut to the bone and just keep cutting. Best people are all leaving and the risk of more departures seems very high. Every man for himself cultureā€¦.starting in the executive suite.


Comments

Be very very cautious. The place is not what it seems
