    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Towers Watson as an intern (Less than a 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

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

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