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

Pros

Great people - top quality associates who are highly engaged and take pride in their work.
Impressive book of business - many of the top Fortune 500 companies
Strong centralized support for intellectual capital development, senior leadership does a great job keeping an eye on the market and proactively acting on a changing benefits environment

Cons

Expectations of TW clients and Senior Management are high - this is a very fast paced environment and balancing work and life can sometimes be difficult (but not impossible). This job is not for everyone!

    I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Consulting practitioners are very experienced and knowledgeable in their technical field
    - No ego's exist compared to other Big 4 firms
    - Does not require the same travel demands as other Big 4 firms

    Cons

    Towers Watson is a relatively new public firm and is getting used to the demands of forecasting/reporting results to Wall Street. It is obvious that the culture has changed to ensuring selling and billable hours targets are achieved to ensure forecasted targets are met.
