    Pros

    This is an apolitical company with decent benefits and a casual dress code.

    Cons

    Since the merger between Towers Watson and Willis there has been large changes ,mostly negative. You are expected to work ridiculous hours. Many finance jobs have been outsourced to India. After months of training and working with the people in India they were still disorganized and unprepared to handle the job responsibilities. There has been a large amount of people leaving due to office closings, consolidations and general frustration by employees
