I have been working at Towers Watson full-time for less than a year

Pros

People are polite and you can work from home. That is about the extent of it.

Cons

This company is so archaic, it is frightening. And they believe they are "in touch" with the world as it is today. Guess again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move to the future, take a stand and set some clear direction.

    I worked at Towers Watson as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - tons of opportunities for personal & professional development
    - smart people
    - interesting work
    - autonomy
    - flexibility (work from home very accepted)

    Cons

    - inconsistent leadership across business units; some leaders don't communicate, others do
    - risk aversion to telling people realities of change post-merger lead to many frustrated & disengaged associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open - give your very smart people the benefit of the doubt - deliver tough messages without sugar coating, those who don't accept it don't belong there in the long run.
