I have been working at Towers Watson full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people - top quality associates who are highly engaged and take pride in their work.
Impressive book of business - many of the top Fortune 500 companies
Strong centralized support for intellectual capital development, senior leadership does a great job keeping an eye on the market and proactively acting on a changing benefits environment

Cons

Expectations of TW clients and Senior Management are high - this is a very fast paced environment and balancing work and life can sometimes be difficult (but not impossible). This job is not for everyone!

    I have been working at Towers Watson part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Whenever I've heard colleagues talk about why they enjoy working at Towers Watson they've always mentioned their colleagues and I would agree. The people here really are what make Towers Watson a fantastic working environment; despite the diversity of backgrounds people come from, they all share a commitment to collaboration and excellence so it is a very supportive environment which pushes and enables you to be the best you can be. I have worked for Towers Watson for 8 years and have had career growth and development I couldn't have foreseen - every time I've been ready for a new challenge one has come along, often from an unexpected direction. Despite the fact that it's a global multinational, leaders are very accessible, it's very non-hierarchical and there are surprisingly good connections across geographies and lines of business so it feels much less intimidating and more navigable than other global professional services firms I've had exposure to.

    Cons

    Towers Watson is an 'adult' environment. Opportunities, support, development etc are plentiful but you have to use your initiaitive to take advantage of what is available. People who like to be spoon-fed may be less well suited. Also TW offers a total career/reward proposition so, while the dollars are by no means bad, people who are heavily money-motivated will find other environments in which they'll be able to earn more.

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

    Pros

    - Consulting practitioners are very experienced and knowledgeable in their technical field
    - No ego's exist compared to other Big 4 firms
    - Does not require the same travel demands as other Big 4 firms

    Cons

    Towers Watson is a relatively new public firm and is getting used to the demands of forecasting/reporting results to Wall Street. It is obvious that the culture has changed to ensuring selling and billable hours targets are achieved to ensure forecasted targets are met.
