Top Tier Firm

Consultant (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe perks for working for a top tier firm include access to really great proprietary research and having interesting clients that offer a wide variety of challenges. The experience you'll get from TW is unlike any other firm.

ConsWith regard to the Retirement Practice, their focus is the long term growth of the actuarial practice. Growth opportunities are available, although I suspect there are fewer opportunities for thoughtful work over time as the nature of the business becomes a commodity. There is an acknowledgement that defined contribution and non-qualified plan work exists ,but isn't valued as a practice.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
