    light and fun atmosphere. huge support system and room for growth.

    Constantly improving. Everything is monitored. It hard to get into other departments.

    Make ways for CSR to branch out from the call center into other areas of the company.

    Pros

    Towers Watson is a successful company and a great company to work for because of their talented, dedicated and hard-working associates. TW offers pension, 401k and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Although they give credits for medical beneftis, employees will still need to give their share (minimal cost). Employees still need to meet their deductible and it can be costly.

    Pros

    Work-life balance for the most part is good, at least for my area.

    Cons

    Since the merger of Towers and Wyatt over five years ago there are still two cultures, although senior management is under the impression that has been resolved. (Maybe at their level, but not at the level of the everyday worker-be).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those in the trenches, not those who tell you what you want to hear.
