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

    Pros

    Excellent actuarial student program, generous exam support and bonuses, smart people to work with and learn from; many training opportunities for new hires; lots of Fortune 500 clients, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Depending on projects, sometimes may need to work long hours to meet project deadlines. But it's the nature of consulting.

    I have been working at Towers Watson full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You couldn't ask for a better group of coworkers. From analyst to senior consultant, everyone is willing to help you out. Everyone is highly intelligent so it keeps you motivated to produce the best work possible.

    Cons

    As with consulting in general, you have sporadic work weeks. They has been an increase in the number of long work weeks. This is partly because of the office being currently under staffed.
