Fast-paced internship with heavy emphasis on team collaboration and individual responsibility
Minneapolis, MN | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Aside from the seriously amazing individuals that I had the opportunity to work with, the corporate culture there was fantastic; it was an absolute pleasure to work with some amazingly intelligent people. Right away I felt like a valued individual, I had others coming up to me excited to teach me something new and to get my help. Mercer was hassle-free when it came to scheduling some time off around my exam I took over the summer as well.


Downers

The only real con of the internship was the fact that we had two new hires and two interns competing for low-level work in a small department of (~40), at times it made the consistency of workflow poor, but usually wasn't a problem.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people here are amazing, and the work that you do is extremely satisfying. It's the right mixture of a challenging and nurturing environment, and you won't regret choosing here for a summer internship.

The best aspect was the attention and care that the employees paid to the interns. They really invest a lot of time into intern training and making sure the interns are learning and having the best experience possible.


Downers

Nothing I liked least.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to experience what an actuary actually does and learn how to do day-to-day work, this is the place. Come prepared to learn and do actual work.

The hours were long, but other than that no complaints

4.2 of 5 stars

An interesting, challenging, fun, and engaging work experience in an important idustry
San Francisco, CA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The work was challenging, but the environment is very supportive. Large opportunity for advancement if you work hard, by the end of the internship, I was training other people.


Downers

I am finding it very difficult to think of a negative experience that I had. Commuting to and from San Francisco is not extremely pleasant.


Advice to Potential Interns

Try your very best no matter the task, and do not be afraid to ask questions.


Advice to Management

I needed a little more guidance on proper billing of hours. Early in the internship, I accidentally billed more hours than I should have because I was learning along the way and took longer than normal.
