    I worked at Towers Watson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flat organisation structure - this presents great learning opportunities for entry level employee Good variety of work - interesting and challenging, not too repetitive Close to zero office politics Really lives up to the ClientFirst policy

    Cons

    Long working hours - work can get very busy at times, no control over deadline due to client demand Remuneration structure is not great

    Advice to Management

    Should try harder when negotiating project delivery deadlines with clients; needs to improve resource management, especially on the junior level employees

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Towers Watson (Sydney) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The Interview process is done online through a phone interview, they will have a caller either from Australia for India call the number you leave them and they call exactly on the dot of the time you submit through an email. They will first ask you to go through your resume with them, then the interview will start asking you behavioural questions. I think that the interviewers generally have a very tight schedule, if you go through your resume too slowly, they will cut you off and move on the the other questions they need to ask. I felt it was hard to convey emotions or establish a connection over the phone because you dont know how the interviewer is reacting when you are giving your response.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you had a busy schedule and how you handled it.   Answer Question
