    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent compensation. Opportunities for advancement. Recent acquisitions have helped up their technology game. Senior management has a bold vision for the future and seem to be implementing it well. High quality work output.

    Cons

    Little work/life balance and no real sympathy for those who want it. Advancement opportunities are more difficult for those looking for alternative ways to do it - career paths are well-defined, but they risk losing people who haven't followed these well-worn paths. My group has been understaffed for several years with no end in sight.

    Advice to Management

    Let people have a life outside the firm. Don't make them feel bad for using vacation time. Most importantly, adequately staff positions.

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible environment, smart people to work with. Generally provides for good career opportunity if you are self-driven, speak up and network. Provides for mobility opportunities as well (but you need to be proactive about it).

    Cons

    Culture change since merger. Has lessened flexibility around being autonomous in decision making. Managers are not alwasy appropriately trained to take on leadership roles and as such, large differences exist between treatment of people across groups.
