I had many good years there but they went public joining with Watson Wyatt and the culture changed.

    I worked at Towers Perrin

    Pros

    There were some very smart hard working people. They offered some of the best in class products/services. They were very professional.

    Cons

    The merger with Watson Wyatt brought a huge culture change - and not in a good way. It felt like doing a great job became a second priority to grabbing every dollar possible. Also, politics drove many leadership decisions, not making the best choice for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at the bottom line and instead look forward.
