Pros

The company prides itself on taking care of its associates and it does a decent job. The benefits are good. The freedom and autonomy allow a good work life balance even when there is lots of travel, which can come in spurts or be a constant thing depending on what you're doing. One of the best things is working with terrific people. The firm does interesting research in the HR field and the work we do helps people improve their workday experiences.

Cons

Stress levels can be high. Lower-level salaries don't seem to be competitive (e.g., below consultant). There has been a lot of change recently.

    Pros

    TW has a good reputation with clients.

    Cons

    TW does not pay well and does not solicit staff input when making decisions that impacts how people work within the organization. This company is not transparent. Management always shocks their staff with new process, systems, and methods that consistently fails. On many occassion, people get so frustrated and causes them to look for greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff because they are the best asset you have. You have already lost a lot of good people so please take good care of whoever is left in your company.

  2. Great people, great opportunity, great experience.

    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.
