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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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
