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

Pros

Great people - genuinely very clever; great IC, environment, collaborative, genuine , authentic and they live their values; long tenure;

Cons

Senior leadership very average; not terribly dynamic; risk averse; conservative and traditional; too much silo'd behaviour between lines of business (but gettting better at that)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please retire and let some younger more dynamic people get on with it
