    I worked at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Client work was rewarding and the resources to support the client were abundant.

    Cons

    Corner office leadership changes frequently. Bonus pool is gerrymandered. Working with offshore team is difficult and unless you directly touch the revenue, you are at risk for being "skylined" - fancy consulting name for losing your job. And when you get promoted, it's due to someone else leaving and don't expect them to back-fill.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with dignity and respect. Transparency is needed. Don't count on the exchange and VB being the silver lining to increase top line revenue - go earn it with real growth.
