    I worked at Towers Watson full-time

    Pros

    - Most people are competent, knowledgeable, friendly and willing to help junior analysts succeed in the long run
    - Free sports drinks in the vending machine
    - Health and Group Benefits promotes a very collegiate environment and there is substantial amount of unity among junior analysts
    - Work can be stimulating depends on the certain client team
    - The company does focus on professional excellence, with an extensive quality assurance process. The firm also fosters internal knowledge sharing and intellectual capital development to help streamlining service delivery and thus optimizing efficiency

    Cons

    - Competence and work ethics of employees can vary on two extremes
    - Certain senior consultants are incapable of controlling their emotions and terrorize everyone that works on their team. They make absolutely no effort to change their behavior, historically drove away few high competent associates due to deteriorating work relationships
    - Work-life balance is a big problem and there seems to be no fix
    - Compensation and benefits are lackluster, very ironic given the firm specializes in benefits consulting. The company has no revenue generation issues, so it's safe to conclude that the firm focuses on compensating individuals who are generating revenue (aka the senior consultants and above, whom are selling projects). However, leadership does need to realize junior analysts are executing the projects and churning out slides and spreadsheets at last nights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Pay junior analyst better so that they don't move to competitors, so difficult to replace people with significant experience in this niche industry, especially in the mid-career consultant level
    - Make an effort to understand why work-life balance is a challenge and reward offices with most amount of revenue generated while putting in relatively least amount of hours to promote a competition of managing workload effectively
    - Do not allow incompetent senior people to be people managers. A prerequisite for being a people manager needs to someone who is a "people person" and truly cares about helping junior analysts succeed and be a contributor.
