I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- A very clear-cut career path
- Opportunity to work directly with clients
- Interesting Work
- Great compensation

Cons

- Culture of workaholism is praised
- No regard for human beings. They literally were excited to use the death of a co-worker to get in front of the clients he left behind.
- No respect for junior employees.
- Siloed culture per department. Almost impossible to make friends across departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually show that you care about people and take your own advice that you offer to clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Penny wise pound foolish - technology and infranstructure changes have simply created more work for employees. If they leave, have you really generated savings?

    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you generally work with are really nice and generally quite helpful.
    Company pays for any study you want to do.

    Cons

    Management is poor in terms of communicating to employees leading to lack of team moral and motivation. Projects aren't planned properly meaning no organisation, work being rushed and having to be redone, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and take their thoughts into consideration
