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

Pros

TW is highly respected in the market with a great reputation for client service and excellent work.

Cons

Sales and billable hours goals are high and very challenging to meet. Managers insist they are possible, but I'm skeptical. Work life balance is a challenge as well, although this is true in the consulting industry in general, and not unique or any worse at TW.

    Hours during bust season
    Much is expected of all client team members, you can be expected to be a Jack of all trades
    Leadership seem to be managing the stock price and not the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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.
