Pros

The team environment is very helpful for new associates. There is constant communciation between senior consultants and new associates, making knowledge transfer an integral part of the office culture.

Cons

There are many tight deadlines and a fifty hour week and turn into a sixty hour week on Friday afternoon at times.

    Corporate leadership out of touch with associates on the ground. Medical benefits are lacking.

    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    All the benefits of a large, global firm: many offices, many resources, lots of different kinds of work being done (most of it excellent)

    Cons

    All the negatives of a large, global firm: systems are too inflexible, review process (particularly upward review process) is seriously flawed, difficult to get exceptions made for you (especially as concerns compensation)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal review process is seriously flawed; retention is an issue; attempts to create uniform systems across radically different lines of business are unlikely to be successful

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
