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.

    Pros

    Benefits were generous and progressive; Smart, ambitious, hard working, friendly coworkers; collaborative environment;

    Cons

    Very different environment post merger. Difficult to obtain billable hours goal, some favoritism at play with hours. Without meeting billable hours, impossible to get a good raise or promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Distribute the work down the chain more effectively; Go back to the LWW culture.
