Thoughts on Willis Towers Watson vs. Mercer for compensation consulting?

Haven’t heard great things about Mercer either

How would you rank them compared to competitors (Aon/Radford/McGlagan, Korn Ferry Hay, etc.)?

I believe WTW/Mercer/Deloitte are on-par (although Mercer/Deloitte people may disagree), only due to our breadth and depth of compensation consulting capabilities. I feel like Korn Ferry, boutiques, and other Big 4 are not too far behind, but mostly because WTW/Mercer pretty much focus on this space. Aon/Radford is interesting. I see Radford more for data usages, I’m actually not familiar with their consulting arm. In terms of data, Radford/Aon lead the way with tech and life sciences data, WTW/Mercer relatively the same in terms of our data quality.

As a side note, I recommend to try compensation consulting but it’s definitely niche and less people focused…

Yeah I hear you. Certainly niche. I’ve seen tons of consulting openings. I’ve thought about going into it to broaden my HR experience. Any idea where it could lead? Looking to maybe go in house one day. Could help with becoming an HRBP or something.

Interviewed for 5.5 hours today at a boutique IB today. Base comp is a slight bump. 14 mos in FDD @ PwC who will make senior this CRT - love the role but want to see more of the transaction besides TBs and TB detail. Comp isn’t a huge bump but the IB seems to have a good culture. 20 people. I really am struggling. I worried about FDD golden handcuffs with limited exit ops. Please advise!!! How should I navigate this and assess it from an unbiased perspective. Thx!
