I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for less than a year

Pros

Helpful colleagues, flexibility as far as work-life balance is concerned. Telecommuting from home is not a problem when needed. This really helps folks like me who has a family. Enough corporate activities organized by the HR. Overall a good place to work.

Cons

The health insurance the company offers is absolutely ridiculous. By the time you are done paying the high deductibles, the year is over and a new set of deductibles kick in. Not very good for folks with families, especially with small kids where you may have to see the doctor very often. And if you have a family member who has got an ongoing issue like asthma/allergy etc. you will be better off finding some other place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Must offer better health insurance for folks living in the greater Philadelphia area.

    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The perks for working for a top tier firm include access to really great proprietary research and having interesting clients that offer a wide variety of challenges. The experience you'll get from TW is unlike any other firm.

    Cons

    With regard to the Retirement Practice, their focus is the long term growth of the actuarial practice. Growth opportunities are available, although I suspect there are fewer opportunities for thoughtful work over time as the nature of the business becomes a commodity. There is an acknowledgement that defined contribution and non-qualified plan work exists ,but isn't valued as a practice.
