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

    Pros

    When I first started, there were a lot of great people to learn from. Collaborating with others frequently quickens learning and development.

    Cons

    Salaries are the same across office regions. Senior sellers leaving the company at an alarming rate. As a result work is becoming harder to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job at retaining senior people who land big projects.

  2.  

    Very competitive atmosphere with a structure that is hierarchal - to their detriment with employee relations.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to work with large organizations on a national scale. Offered flexibility. Nice office/work space. Mostly great people there to work with and for.

    Cons

    Boss in another practice and city… made it very hard during reviews (would have to rely solely on what someone said and had several times where it was not accurate, but my voice was not taken into account due to the seniority of the person talking). Also competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at associates as people, not numbers… I won an international award as part of a team there the year several years. My name was announced as part of the awarded team just a couple weeks after let go… colleagues told me about that announcement and the irony...and we had a good laugh. I found the process of being laid off very stiff, especially for my hard work over the years (working many nights until the middle of the night to keep clients happy, etc.). No regard for personal situations that a person is in at the time of RIF.
