Pros

A great place to learn!
Excellent study support
Friendly culture
Young company and very social
Supportive of learning
Coworkers collaborate well and do not compete or judge
7% pension contribution is great

Cons

In the UK, the head office is in Reigate, which is in the middle of the countryside and very inconvenient to reach by both public transport and car (parking spaces are only given after working 4-5 years at the firm)
Hours can be long.
Not a good place to earn!
Career progression can be slow especially for technical, non-client facing roles
Career progression very much related to the time worked at the company, rather than your performance or the value you add.
No reward on hard work, promotion is the same as it is related to the time you've worked at the firm and bonuses are standardized
Very difficult and political to move teams, and limited opportunity to move across geographies despite being a global company
Managers only care about their own team and don't care about the company as a whole, limiting employees opportunities to learn how the business works
Every role in Towers Watson is very specialist due to the size of the firm, limiting future prospects and hindering exit opportunities

Advice to Management

Offer the employees a broader learning opportunity and the opportunity to move across teams and locations. Lots of good employees get stuck in the wrong team and then end up leaving the firm when they could have added lots of value to the firm
