Overall a good a experience

Former Employee - Consultant

I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Consulting practitioners are very experienced and knowledgeable in their technical field
- No ego's exist compared to other Big 4 firms
- Does not require the same travel demands as other Big 4 firms

Cons

Towers Watson is a relatively new public firm and is getting used to the demands of forecasting/reporting results to Wall Street. It is obvious that the culture has changed to ensuring selling and billable hours targets are achieved to ensure forecasted targets are met.

    I have been working at Towers Watson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people were nice, friendly and helpful. But I interned in the data services team so my work almost entirely consisted of data cleaning which was boring. Thankfully, the manager of my team gave me an interesting industry research project to do on the side. I learned a lot from that project about market research, evaluating trends, and creating presentations and reports.

    Cons

    Like I said, the work is pretty dull if you're roped in simply to work on data stuff, but you might be able to go to other teams and ask if you can help out with their work too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more enriching internship program
