    I worked at Towers Watson

    Pros

    The pay is great - they pay on the high end of the spectrum to attract the best talent

    Cons

    Very demanding environment - if you're not working a minimum of 55-60 hrs per week you are viewed as not being a "team player". Employees are often misled by management and they tend to lookout for their favorites. I witnessed situations in which ethics were pushed to the side because someone was well liked. The enviroment is very rigid and unwelcoming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to ethics and doing what is right. Deceiving employees to serve your personal interests will eventually catch up with the organization as a whole.

    I worked at Towers Watson

    Pros

    some talented people and a nice office

    Cons

    everyone feels overworked and underpaid as the company is going under more reorganization after the merger. They are cutting cost where they can and most people do the jobs of others. People are unhappy and unmotivated. They claim to be the best in the field, but their benefits package and salaries are below what you would expect from that kind of a corporation. cookie-cutter and unimaginative environment. If you want better job prospects, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the merger has ruined the company and the management is not doing a good job keeping the people happy.
