I worked at Mercer

Pros

Highly professional organization
Great training programme
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.
