I have been working at Towers Watson

Pros

Smart people, great clients, great brand, interesting work, promotions at most levels are fair, good benefits, lots of responsibility regardless of level

Cons

Promotions at very senior levels can be slow, cash compensation may be lower than competitors and you need to consider the whole total rewards package, speed of innovation is slower than smaller firms

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward and recognize innovation by carving out time and roles instead of thinking it can be a hobby part-time while consultants are attempting to achieve high goal standards

    I have been working at Towers Watson

    Pros

    Entry-level compensation was generous.
    Relocation assistance seems to be typically provided.
    Bonuses and pay raises are no longer frozen.
    Potential to learn a lot about the industry.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance well over 3/4ths of the year.
    Bonuses do not offset the amount of time needed to actually get the bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving retention. I find it unlikely that the most talented individuals are willing to put up with all of the cons of working there. In other words, you're constantly losing some of your best employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give decent salary increases and bonuses to employees at all levels
    Communicate better with staff
    Update the antiquated computer systems which appear to be from the 80's
