    Pros

    The people you generally work with are really nice and generally quite helpful.
    Company pays for any study you want to do.

    Cons

    Management is poor in terms of communicating to employees leading to lack of team moral and motivation. Projects aren't planned properly meaning no organisation, work being rushed and having to be redone, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    job to pay your bills

    Cons

    people are treated there like dirt, promotions by who you know and not what you know

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the big bosses need to put system in place where they can monitor technical knowledges and human skills of their managers on an annual basis by requesting feedback from all employees under the particular manager

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
