    I worked at Willis Towers Watson (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very open and welcoming environment. Everyone within the department seems to be friends and get along well outside of work. People were very willing to teach, which as an intern was extremely helpful, but also every project worked on was challenging. They give you so much knowledge and help you grow tremendously. Such a great place to work!

    Cons

    As an intern it took longer for me to complete projects over analysts so at times it felt as though people would rather do things themselves when a project needed to be done quickly
