    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Leading edge intellectual capital in the industry
    Smart colleagues who work collaboratively to help
    Flexible work/life policies
    Ease of work experiences in other countries

    Cons

    Since the Towers Perrin and Watson Wyatt merger in 2010, there is more internal bureaucracy to deal with, and Lines of Business think more in silos nowadays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to more easily bring our best people and best work to our clients, regardless of who "owns" the work or client relationship.
