Mediocre Work Culture, Good Benefits, Frozen Corporate Hierarchy

Research Department (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than a year

ProsDiversified tasks, given a number of responsibilities, additional training provided, and a number of smart people working in the organization. Since day one I was given responsibilities for handling multiple projects, and when I had to learn a new programming language, the company paid for off-site training.

ConsProjects were repetitive, a lot of tasks seemed suited for an administrative type job, lack of mobility, not willing to listen to suggestions.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncorporate new ideas more, and provide a more challenging and rewarding atmosphere for employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
