    Get on the conveyor belt, don't be ambitious, don't expect positive change. I'd suggest you dont bother!

    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional colleagues that keep you sane during the daily grind. CFA/FIA paid for and adequate study support. Exposure to a range of departments.

    Cons

    Management completely disintegrated from analysts. Pay is extremely low until senior management, which is freely admitted. You won't get promoted quickly by being good or working hard, you are put on a conveyor belt and expected to be happy with it. Bonus is a joke again until more senior and you have to wait for seniors to die/retire/leave before positions are made available. London office is depressing and dull. Sometimes work 8am - 10pm whilst seniors leave at 6. Only apply if you enjoy updating spreadsheets, models and drafting emails for seniors. If you're lucky they might let you "check" other peoples attempts at making the circle bullet points squares.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire the top talent don't expect to keep them for long if you don't start treating them fairly. Look at the deadwood in the higher ranks and promote the potentials. Don't treat the underachievers the same as the stars.
