Best Places to Interview: 2017 (#27)
I have been working at Mercer full-time (More than 8 years)
Great benefits, lots of emphasis on wellness, health, healthy food in cafeteria, diversity and inclusion, employee surveys, flexible working is encouraged, easy hours, great if you have a long commute and a family. Great for young people.
Static management structure, hard to get promoted, hard to get recognition for making money for the company as they are more interested in networking and politics. Easy to get lazy as there is little incentive to perform. Goals are a mystery. Not great for ambitious senior staff - they do not stick around.
Advice to Management
Concentrate on the bottom line
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mercer (London, England) in March 2018.
Video Interview - they asked 6 questions and I had 2minutes 30seconds to answer each one. They started off easy with basic questions about why mercer, why you etc then went into a few more niche questions like the one I listed below.
