I have been working at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There are some great people who want to see you (and will help you) grow and succeed. Once you have established a track record, you will have a good deal of flexibility to structure your routines, approaches to client work, et cetera.

Cons

Getting anything done takes several times as long as before the merger, and the administrative burden of working here continues to increase without bound. Culture has also changed for the worse. Senior management is arrogant and authoritarian -- follows "do as I say, not as I do" approach with regard to corporate values and responsibilities.

Advice to Management

TW is a human resources consultancy. It's embarrassing and disillusioning that we don't practice the 'best practices' we preach.

    I worked at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Diversified tasks, given a number of responsibilities, additional training provided, and a number of smart people working in the organization. Since day one I was given responsibilities for handling multiple projects, and when I had to learn a new programming language, the company paid for off-site training.

    Cons

    Projects were repetitive, a lot of tasks seemed suited for an administrative type job, lack of mobility, not willing to listen to suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate new ideas more, and provide a more challenging and rewarding atmosphere for employees.
