Mercer (Outsourcing - H&B) - The More you know

Client Services Analyst (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

ProsGreat starting wage for entry-level new grads. Can't knock the benefits packages. Terrific Medical/Vision/Dental offerings, generous vacation offerings.

ConsSpecifically with respect to Mercer's Outsourcing H&B: If you come from a specialized major, be prepared to be locked into the world of benefits administration. Non-transferrable technical skillset: In order to have this skillset transfer, you'll need to do outside work on your own to secure such measures (but don't forget about the non-compete/non-disclosure you signed or it could get dicey).

Don't plan on using that vacation anytime around the holidays as a member of Mercer Outsourcing's H&B section - that happens to be the "busy" season (Open Enrollment) and as such, M-Fs just went from 40s into the 50s

Working for any "client service" organization entails the need for the office to always be staffed (M-F) - rarely/never work remotely, long core-hours (lack of flexibility with work hours).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    On the fence

    I have been working at Mercer full-time


    Pros: Well-known company, opportunities to learn about consulting, clients, project management,… Cons: Weak EVP, top priorities are revenue-based with little to no… Advice to Senior Management: Develop your employees, lead instead of drive, generate enthusiasm instead… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
