    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you work hard and you are in focus of management you will have a fast career, a lot of different work opportunities is a good chance to learn a lot, those who give a clear commitment get support in development opportunities

    Cons

    high pressure although the company is very healthy, those few at the top of the company have a high bonus when the normal employees have to suffer in bonus. The development program isn't structured. the management isn't able to say thank you to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be happy that your employees are highly loyal. Think about that the stakeholder are as important than the shareholder

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

    Pros

    Great people - top quality associates who are highly engaged and take pride in their work.
    Impressive book of business - many of the top Fortune 500 companies
    Strong centralized support for intellectual capital development, senior leadership does a great job keeping an eye on the market and proactively acting on a changing benefits environment

    Cons

    Expectations of TW clients and Senior Management are high - this is a very fast paced environment and balancing work and life can sometimes be difficult (but not impossible). This job is not for everyone!
