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

    Pros

    Excellent seasonal position for those licensed in Life and Health. Excellent work for those who are familiar with the insurance options that are available to Medicare beneficiaries. Excellent position for those seeking seasonal work. Expect to work June through December. You will qualify for unemployment after being laid off. Pay was $17.50 an hour for those already licensed, and $16.50 an hour for those not already licensed. Can make up to a $400.00 monthly bonus each month for October and November. December is pro-rated based on how many days you work before being laid off. Can make up to a $500.00 end of assignment bonus based on your percentage of schedule adherence. Very nice office. Break rooms had very nice free coffee and tea machines. For the most part you are able to take unpaid time off along as you submit your request at least a day in advance. Supervisors and management are generally members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Generally a relaxed environment. Looking forward to being rehired in 2017.

    Cons

    No benefits. No health insurance. No holiday pay. No sick pay. No paid time off. Only paid for the minutes that you work. If there is a holiday, you will lose that day from your paycheck. No opportunity to work extra time to make up for the holiday. Also, 0 (zero) overtime. Expect to be laid off on or around December the 16th. Arizona unemployment only pays $240.00 a week maximum. Weekly meeting with supervisor to discuss progress and to set weekly goals. Depending on your supervisor, they can micromanage you down to the point of going over each word you say in a telephone call. Calls generally take longer than management prefers. Management prefers shorter calls and enrollments on every call. Office cubicles are very small and very close together. Do not count on the $400.00 a month bonus. There are many exceptions that can lower that amount. Do not count on the $500.00 end of assignment bonus. There are exceptions that can lower that amount.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work. The job is what it is, and management did a great job of letting people know that it is seasonal employment.

    Pros

    Love to handle claims. Good benefits and paid vacations.

    Cons

    Too many claims to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Management should give applicants an opportunity for an interview. I retired with severance package due to reorganization. Claim jobs were sent to Mumbai. I would love to work at 110% for the next five years then retire again. I have been in claims for 20+ years and would be capable to train others.

    Pros

    WTW values its employees and attempts to allow associates to work in areas of greatest interest. They support career development and are open to ideas. Most of the leaders genuinely care about the employee experience.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be pretty independent given the nature of the consulting work. You need to take ownership of your career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be visible and provide clarity of vision - particularly with merger.

    I have been working at Willis Towers Watson full-time

    Pros

    Lots of smart people who do quality work. Interesting lines of business, services and products on offer. Strong reputation in the business communities served.

    Cons

    Frequent changes from mergers, acquisitions and reorganization change the dynamics of how work gets done. Sometimes management is at a loss to communicate how to get work done in the new environment because they're still figuring it out themselves. Employees have to be comfortable and nimble working through things like this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue open communication about planning under way. Invite feedback from people doing the work to make sure that things don't slip through the cracks.
