    I worked at Mercer (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work on multiple projects with allows you to gain a lot of experience and exposure in a short period of time. The team was very supportive and had a great culture.

    Cons

    Mostly focused on compensation, pay, rewards, etc. which is not a Con but this particular subset of HC consulting is their bread and butter. Just something to be aware of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep nurturing the positive community!
