    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

    Practice what you preach.
