    I have been working at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is the leading edge of benefits. I enjoy working for them.

    Cons

    I can think of is that the pay should be higher especially in comparison to other companies. However they are working on that. Also I think they they need a daycare for employees. If you are a parent of a young child its harder to work here with the closing shift being 8pm. They do have late shifts and shift bids.

    Pros

    Once converted to full time associate, position is very secure

    Cons

    Poor pay and benefit structure, which continues to get worse year to year with the merger
    Negligible room for actual advancement or promotion based on merit, people are more often promoted who are not deserving/qualified due to favoritism (i.e. people leave the company and return later with a promotion)
    Too much time wasted on meaningless PE process

    Advice to Management

    Focus on taking care of your employees with better pay and benefits., in turn the employees will be happier and do a better job of taking care of your clients.
