Mary Ellen O’Neill | Senior HCM Consultant

Why do you enjoy being part of the NRC Managed Services team?  

Working with the same team of Analysts and Technical personnel lends to a cohesive working relationship. We have a great management/leadership too. We also enjoy the opportunity to work with multiple clients while still working with the same NRC team. It’s a great feeling to always have a team there to support you when needed. I’ve found that, while each client is different, we are still able to apply our standard practices and procedures across most clients. This lends itself to consistency and provides useful tools for all team members.

What is your favorite part(s) about your job? 

I love working with the people on the Managed Services team and I really enjoy the work I do with PeopleSoft HCM—it’s not a “cookie cutter” type application; it always provides new challenges and never gets boring.

What work/project are you most proud of? 

I’ve worked on multiple successful PeopleSoft HCM implementations (new and adding functionality). It is always gratifying when you get your clients over the finish line. I’ve also managed and worked on several acquisition projects that are very complex and have varying types of tasks that need to be analyzed, coordinated, communicated, and completed. A great deal of work goes into these projects to achieve successful completion.

Outside of work what can you be found doing?  

Golfing, playing tennis, or socializing with friends and family.

What is your “unique?” 

Both of my parents were Chicago Police Commanders—I haven’t come across anyone who can claim this other than my siblings! I always tell people it was almost impossible getting a date to pick me up at my front door.
