    Pros

    Great team collaboration, and respect for individual contributions. Good work life balance - Company really seems to care. Awesome opportunities for personal and career growth.

    Cons

    Winning of new business means amazing opportunities for growth, but also times when the workforce is stressed until new people are hired.

    Advice to Management

    Great benefits, but PTO could be a little better.

    Pros

    Quality values expressed and encouraged, through OneExchange from Towers Watson, towards the medicare eligible customers is at the pinnacle of customer service and support. At first, aimed towards client relief and customer satisfaction, this organization began achieving much more than originally expected. Educating customers, clients, and even employees with interpersonal sensitivity, business management, and Insurance skills that is much needed in todays society.

    Cons

    Employee acquisition through seasonal "trial period."

    Advice to Management

    Employee quality/quantity needs projection measuring.

    Pros

    - Exposure to all different types of clients, industries, and work
    - Will not pigeon hole you into one field; have opportunities to do work in different lines of business
    - Great upper management, i.e., they care about your career progression, your work/life balance, etc.
    - Firm's brand and reputation in the HR consulting space
    - You learn something different from each different consultant and colleague you work with
    - Working on multiple projects at once - subjective opinion but keeps work interesting
    - Flexibility in schedule

    Cons

    - Cash compensation is fair, though should be better with the level of stress and responsibilities given. However, total rewards (comp + benefits + retirement) is great
    - Work / life balance can suffer at times. Often on-call around the clock. Though the trade off is the vast amount experience you get
