    I worked at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The WTW team puts their team members first, hosting various events to engage team members and assist in the work-life balance. Senior team members were supportive of staff growth and continued education.

    Cons

    Difficult to move around within the Company, despite the various champions for continued success. As WTW moves to new processes, there is continued resistance from some internal teams/managers, making getting on-board with changes difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the value of your team members, thank them for the things that they have done and do what you can to assist them in their career growth. WTW is a great company and it is a shame to lose team members because management stifles their growth.
