    Pros

    You'll learn a lot from knowledgeable industry experts. If you are a high performer, you will be recognized for your work. Your work gets shared with C-Level executives.

    Cons

    Pay is below comparable opportunities for analyst level employees. This is especially true if you come from a target school. This could have changed post-merger fallout.

    Former Employee - Investment Analyst in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Towers Watson

    Pros

    Good Work / Life Balance (get in the office at 8:30 leave the office at 6:00 (7:00-8:00 during high volume periods, 5:00-5:30 during low volume periods)
    Great Benefits (DC and DB plan (DB plan going away))
    TW helps you with your actuarial and CFA exams

    Cons

    Not enough development opportunities. The work can get mundane (typical thought among many practices not just actuarial). May need to work some weekends (maybe two to five times per year for a few hours as client concerns are needed)
    Low pay comparative to industry average (it is best to stay for a little while and then jump ship to a competitor)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be better at recognizing people that work hard instead of simply giving everyone relatively the same bonuses despite ability.
