Great in most aspects except job security.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 31, 2014
Pros: great co workers
Cons: zero job security
I enjoyed almost everything about working for this company. The coworkers were great very friendly and helpful. Management was good. The problem with this job was that there was no security. When they give you a start and end date there is no assurance that you will start or end on those dates. I was supposed to start for this company again next week – more... but found out the Thursday before that it would not start for another month. If you could trust their start and end dates there would be absolutely nothing wrong. – less

Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 16, 2012
Mercer provided a supportive atmosphere in which to develop your skill set. Departments were collaborative.

My work was project-driven, which meant there were peaks and troughs in work flow. However, initiative is encouraged and so I was always able to pick up projects I wished to do around process improvement.

Defined Benefit Pension Administrator (Former Employee), Dublin, DSeptember 25, 2012
Pros: flexi time, pension
Mercer in Dublin has flexitime which just really improves work/life balance as you can choose your hours.
Working in such a professional environment is very liberating. Great management, very by the book and fair.
The hardest part of the job is when companies go bust, we got busier, winding up schemes is hard when you see how upset people are
most enjoyable – more... part is the company has a sports and social club, they really promote work/life balance and organize fun activities to get everyone together – less

Executive Assistant (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: stressful, with over worked employees with very little assistance.
Cons: lack of reward for a job well done.
I learned the more you achieve, more is expected of you. Management tends to take all credit for jobs done well, but accepts no responsibility for failures.

Co-works are very supportive of each other out of a desire to achieve the best results.

Analyst (Current Employee), USAMarch 10, 2014
Pros: free coffee
Day-to-day is pretty good. Look out for education, they say they will pay, but deny when you get in the door. Same for certifications unless you need them by regulation.

Great job, if you can handle it
Participant Service Representative (Former Employee), Norwood, MAMarch 6, 2014
I'd like to start by saying those that say there's no room for growth are wrong. There are MANY opportunities to grow, but you have to work for it, show interest, and be doing well at the job. The co workers are the best, a lot of friends can be made, and there's always someone there to help. That being said the job itself can be tough you are taking – more... inbound calls all day, and are literally attached to your desk. BUT the skills you learn, and information learned is outstanding. I learned about health and benefits and leave of abscenses, and am now working in HR. SO if you can handle long hours, (because there's lot of OT potential!) then you'll be fine. There is a high turn over rate, but that doesn't mean it will be you. I value my time there. – less
