An amazing company with a vibrant and friendly culture and good work life balance
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 January 2014
Being a part of the office operations team, I work with different departments to fulfill their filing needs. Attention to detail is a critical aspect in records management here and I consider it as my strength. I manage purchases and inventory of office supplies for all departments. I get to interact with everyone since I am a office support team member. I look after various aspects of the office facility including the supply room, records room, boardroom setups and kitchen. My managers are very friendly, foster positive working environment and encourage out of box thinking.
Pros
Free Food from meetings, amazing office premises, state of art coffee machines and office equipment, occassional fun activities
Cons
Don't remember any except that the position does not have an advancement opportunity for now.

Supportive and inclusive atmosphere
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 November 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.

very professional with great benefits
Defined Benefit Pension Administrator (Former Employee) –  Dublin, D25 September 2012
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 part is the company has a sports and social club, they really promote work/life balance and organize fun activities to get everyone together
Pros
flexi time, pension

Typical workplace

AGF provides the cliche workplace environment with little embellishments. Its a warm and favorable place and its generic environment is soothing.

Excellente culture d'entreprise
MERCER CONSULTATION EN RESSOURCES HUMAINES (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 May 2016
Possibilité d'avancement latéral ou hiérarchique
Beaucoup d'ouverture
Beaucoup de renforcement positif
Personnes très exigeantes, autant pour elles-mêmes que pour les membres de leurs équipes
Collaborateurs ouverts et communicatifs, n'hésitant pas à clarifier les mandats autant de fois que nécessaire

Aspect agréable : malgré la grosseur de l'entreprise, beaucoup d'informations qui circulent à tous les échelons. On est donc toujours informés.

Aspect difficile : les échéances de toute dernière minute qui sont parfois très difficiles à gérer, car elles surviennent très très souvent.
Pros
Bonne Culture d'entreprise
Cons
Beaucoup de tâches "dernière minute"
