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

Pros

Work/life balance, care about strategy and research, careful about work quality, well known and positive brand among clients and business in general

Cons

Limited in how much positive impact you can have on your clients business (this is an overall industry challenge), Towers Watson rewards CEO and top execs extremely well over many years (ie options and a soaring stock price have made top execs very wealthy) but this does NOT get shared even down to the Exec/Pricipal level (Level 50)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back Employee Stock Purchase Plan and other programs that share the wealth with those who are winning and leading client work

    Either increase compensation or hire more entry level analysts to increase retention rate.
