High Turnover

Former Employee - Actuarial Analyst in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Actuarial Analyst in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Watson Wyatt full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Resume piece, money, access to senior management. The practice leader and principal in the SF office were both very accessible and open to input.

Cons

The middle management was fragmented and in many cases just over-worked and not trained on management techniques. I got the sense as a new analyst that the least happy people in the company were consultants and managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop blaming clients, subordinates, and circumstance when things go wrong. It creates a culture of blame that permeates the office.

No opinion of CEO

    Very intense work environment, comparable to a sweat shop, cooperation among team members very poor.
