    Pros

    Variety of work, flexibility to manage own work loads and good clients generally.

    Cons

    Targets, targets and more targets combined with requirement to charge for everything, open brown nosing and open 'sucking up' to move ahead, lack of collaboration and competition with colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    You lost the Watson Wyatt culture and sold your souls to rampant individualism, rewarding same and similar behaviours and suppressing difference. A good place to learn and then move on, but not a nice place to work and try make a difference in the finish.

    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!

    Advice to Management
