Former Employee - Senior Actuarial Analyst in Arlington, VA
Former Employee - Senior Actuarial Analyst in Arlington, VA

I worked at Towers Watson full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Smart workforce - Everyone knows what they are doing
Engaging work for analysts - Interesting and technical work especially if you are on a team which gets consistent special projects.

Cons

- Sometimes it can be hard to move up quickly. Seems like you are stuck in the same position
- New study program is a bit irritating. It was easier to get materials and permissions earlier, now the process is more formal and involves a lot of red tape.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to make sure that senior analysts have some engaging work and some sense of moving up.

    Former Employee - Actuarial Intern
    Former Employee - Actuarial Intern

    I worked at Towers Watson as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, paid study time, very supportive community within the office, hands on experience - great split between actual client work to get an idea of day to day tasks on the job as a starting analyst & the mock client entire valuation process which indicates what you would be doing on a more long term basis with the company as a senior consultant

    Cons

    Very specific to the retirement field - does not provide a good breath of what other types of actuaries do within the company if you are a graduating student trying to determine what field of actuarial you want to pursue most
