    Pros

    Highly skilled and dedicated co-workers

    Cons

    Office environment is sterile and oppressive, management disciplines people for talking in their cubicles and then has loud conference calls on speaker phone in their own office. No leadership, just micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Give people some autonomy and let them be creative. There are talented people working at Willis whose talents are wasted by focusing on WEM compliance to the exclusion of all else, including providing good client service.

    Pros

    Purchasing additional vacation days at a reduced rate was a nice benefit. 90% of the employees were very friendly and helpful. Knowledgable employees. Local management good about letting staff leave early before holidays or during inclement weather.

    Cons

    Large global mindset with little concern for local offices. Too many decisions made at a corporate level without taking into consideration how it will effect local offices. Too much preferential treatment for "teacher's pets". (Allowing some people to work from home while not even considering letting others.) Too much drama caused by a handful of people in the office. If you get on their bad side, your career is doomed. Good, hard-working employees are laid off while letting the slackers do only what they want to do rather than what needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to corporate for your local staff. Answer questions...don't just ignore them. Address issues when quality of work is not up to standard or attitudes are negative. Don't just "let it go" because you don't want to bother with the negative or those people are doing your work. Don't let non-management staff influence your management decisions.
