    Pros

    Competitive and consistently growing firm, invests a lot into their employees

    I worked at Willis Towers Watson part-time

    Pros

    Working environment generally pleasant. Work can be interesting and challenging. If you achieve permanent status, benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    The changing management has created some uncertainty. One Exchange is a different business model than the parent, and the parent is struggling to understand the differences.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more at the level of line management. The 30,000 foot view given by senior management does not speak to the people who work in the "trenchs".

    I worked at Willis Towers Watson full-time

    Pros

    Some smart colleagues. Work can be a challenge. Certainly pay your dues. Named brand. A lot of travel which can be fun for new associates. (Comments pertain to legacy Willis side).

    Cons

    Favoritism. Murky bonus pool. Very poor starting salary (non-negotiable) for NYC with justification being unlimited OT (up to 60 hours per week - may work much more during open enrollment/traveling seasons). Told you're on a promotion path to consultant level within 1 - 1.5 years - seldom does someone obtain this.

    Advice to Management

    Consider providing compensation that one can live on in NYC. Be clearer about promotions and specific the timetable. Dissatisfaction among associates.
