    I have been working at Towers Perrin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated people
    Good name to have on your resume
    Exposure to intellectual material, learnings and trainings

    Cons

    Too conservative and "Corporate America"
    Change is pretty non-existent and takes top leadership approval
    Little reward for the expected long hours of work
    VERY "big brother" as in they check your email and anything on your laptop

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to the 2013 start-up culture and mentality
    Take care of your people - work/life balance should be practiced not just discussed
    Lose the dead weight and keep the top performers - too many people there just barely getting by

    Actuarial Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Towers Perrin (San Francisco, CA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    It's difficult to gage just how Towers Perrin reaches their final decision. I reached the final round for the position of Actuarial Associate, along with 15 or so others to be dispersed at offices all around the country. They did not say, but I think there were three offices each hiring 1-2 candidates.

    From so many qualified candidates to choose from, I am of the opinion that they simply select based on who they enjoy speaking with the most as well as past internship experience. Not having the latter will put you at a severe handicap.

    None of the questions they asked for specifically unique nor interesting, as all were general interview questions ranging from: "Why Towers Perrin?" and "Describe a situation in which you worked with others?" to "Why would you be a good fit?" Each of my three interviewers were easy to speak with, but with that said, the whole process had a very "corporate" and cold feel, and given their lack of any explanation with respect to how they actually reached their decision, I can only describe the process as average.
