    I have been working at Willis Towers Watson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is very diverse and supports diversity. Allows for flexible hours and work from home. The benefits have changed with the merger and now offers a pension plan as well as a 401K and 19 vacation days at the start of your hire. Friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not necessarily cons, as much as growing pains. The merger has created leadership inconsistencies, too many chiefs and layers. Still 2 separate entities on many levels and trying to merge as one. I would recommend once the merger has settled and the company is established.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be MUCH more transparent on the direction the company is going and employee's careers.

    Pros

    Really smart and kind people! Fun teams to be a part of, interesting work!

    Cons

    Difficult to see sustainable growth path there - particularly as a female. Shifting focus away from work I used to do toward insurance/reinsurance.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about your direction, or employees will assume.

    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.
