    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Work/Life balance is pretty good.
    -Occasional opportunity for overtime.
    -Pension and 401k
    -Benefits aren't terrible

    Cons

    These are specific to Memphis as other offices are more diverse in how they function for the company...
    -Very little room to advance unless you want to be an actuary
    -Pay is low
    -Training is spotty and the first several months - year are very frustrating as a result
    -Constructive criticism is very rare

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management in Memphis would be to invest more time in training and fostering the development of employees. The management at this office genuinely has a lot client work in addition to management duties but they need to better delegate responsibilities so that new employees don't have to re-invent the wheel by themselves. I would also stress that management needs to work on providing feedback that is constructive. Often employees receive no feedback or lazy feedback that is easy to misinterpret and is often destructive.
