    I worked at Towers Perrin

    Pros

    The company offered a great working environment that allowed for excellent on the job training. It was a good community with my coworkers and I felt I learned a lot.

    Cons

    While the working environment was superb at Towers Perrin, I found that the salaries were a bit low compared to my peers also working downtown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the management would be to offer a higher form of compensation for your employees. This would increase the retention rate and satisfy everyone.

    I worked at Towers Perrin

    Pros

    TP now TW is truly a brand name consulting firm. Most people have heard the name and respect the quality of the firm.

    Cons

    In the office I worked, it was awful. No leadership, no communciation, no open sharing of projects or ideas. It was a toxic environment with little imagination or desire to improve. I think the heirarchial structure is really detrimental to the productivity and development of the firm. Too many people have been there for too long and have no idea how other, productive businesses operate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people in leadership positions who have leadership qualities. Give clear direction on goal attainment and advancement. Attempt to reduce the overinflated opinions of senior level management as they are typically out of touch and egomanical.
