I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- A very clear-cut career path
- Opportunity to work directly with clients
- Interesting Work
- Great compensation

Cons

- Culture of workaholism is praised
- No regard for human beings. They literally were excited to use the death of a co-worker to get in front of the clients he left behind.
- No respect for junior employees.
- Siloed culture per department. Almost impossible to make friends across departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually show that you care about people and take your own advice that you offer to clients.

    I worked at Towers Watson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    job to pay your bills

    Cons

    people are treated there like dirt, promotions by who you know and not what you know

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the big bosses need to put system in place where they can monitor technical knowledges and human skills of their managers on an annual basis by requesting feedback from all employees under the particular manager
