    I worked at Towers Watson

    Pros

    Made a lot of friends, free toilet paper, water, and coffee, and oxygen

    Cons

    Feel like I was in the Twilight Zone but Rod Sterling wasn't there drinking gin and smoking a cigar.

    No career development, awful promotions, bonuses dependent on other units so even if you perform well your bonus may take a hit.

    Poor management, lots of people coasting by doing minimal work while a few are putting in 14+ hour days to make deadlines. Management doesn't do anything about those that cant do the work except move them to different units or makes excuses.

    Management afraid to make tough decisions and get rid of people

    A lot of inner office conflict and turmoil, backstabbing. Departments work out of sync instead of together.

    Company is still using 2 different products instead of using one even though merger was 5 years ago.

    Different countries have different processes, which makes it near impossible with global clients.

    No training or development for current employees.

    Having to pay for parking.

    Decisions made from the top that are negatively impacting the unit as they don't understand exactly how it will impact.

    Having the IT group in the Philippines has been brutal as everything has been delayed and the group hasnt been trained to keep up with the demands of the organization.

    Poor communication all around.

    Consulting offices that are very difficult to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For an HR company, this is unacceptable. Take a hard look at your employees and cut the dead weight and reward those that work hard.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
