I have been working at Towers Watson full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There are some great people who want to see you (and will help you) grow and succeed. Once you have established a track record, you will have a good deal of flexibility to structure your routines, approaches to client work, et cetera.

Cons

Getting anything done takes several times as long as before the merger, and the administrative burden of working here continues to increase without bound. Culture has also changed for the worse. Senior management is arrogant and authoritarian -- follows "do as I say, not as I do" approach with regard to corporate values and responsibilities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

TW is a human resources consultancy. It's embarrassing and disillusioning that we don't practice the 'best practices' we preach.
