    Pros

    Colleagues here are wicked smart and hard-working. Lots of projects, so you can get a broad experience. Exam program seems to be along industry standards.

    Cons

    They'll tell you that work-life balance is important, but you need to make it a priority on your own and may receive push back from consultants. Benefits are good but salary seems to be a bit on the low side with what is expected for actuarial positions.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk regarding work-life balance.

    I have been working at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are really great, flexible hours, work can be fun and challenging.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, they seem to view their employees as replaceable, there isn't really a good environment for someone to discuss any problems they are having with team members or management. Some people in charge really shouldn't be, they don't know how to manage professionally (not something I have experienced myself but have witnessed other people's problems) I've had amazing year end reviews both years I've been here with great feedback but my raises never seem to reflect that...

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and be more appreciative of the hard working people and award them like they are valuable.
