    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fruit in break rooms, Nice building and relatively clean office space, jeans allowed on Friday and in summer, excellent healthcare benefits

    Cons

    The enormity of stress and workloads are so extraordinary, you will pay for it via burgeoning health problems and decline. Since the merger (over 2 years ago) employees in every line of business are overworked and paranoid of working with others from the former "other side" (they still refer to you as a former Towers Perrin person or Watson Wyatt) and of being pushed out of their job. Hence, there is an unending stream of back-stabbing, collusion and throwing everyone under the bus. Horribly tense, jagged pins-and-needles environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't roll out expensive flag-waving tech initiatives which only completely hinder productivity and make life miserable. Compensate talent.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
