    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There's Lots of learning. You get to work on very interesting projects
    They hire a certain type - 'friendly and easy to get along' and this makes the work environment extremely friendly

    Cons

    There's only learning - you pay for learning with the rest of your life
    Management lives in a world of its own and cares only about billable hours and consultant utilization. There's nothing in it for junior employee (besides learning). consultants can do with training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
