    Pros

    Towers Watson is a successful company and a great company to work for because of their talented, dedicated and hard-working associates. TW offers pension, 401k and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Although they give credits for medical beneftis, employees will still need to give their share (minimal cost). Employees still need to meet their deductible and it can be costly.
