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.

  1.  

    My time at Towers Watson was underwhelming and generally unsatisfactory.

    Pros

    The people were very nice and accommodating. The company is well organized given the recent merge between Towers Perrin and Watson Wyatt.

    Cons

    People weren't very competitive. The culture wasn't as aggressive and geared towards high-performance as I'd like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management ought to formalize its hierarchy more so that assignments are clear and consistent. A more formalized training program also would be helpful and might lead the more senior people to delegate work more efficiently than they currently are.
