I worked at Towers Watson full-time (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
