productive way to ensure the customers had what they need and provide excellent customer service skills
Cashier and Salesperson (Former Employee) – Mardela Springs, MD – December 15, 2016
I enjoyed working for the Willis Group it was a very friendly environment I got to meet many regular customers that would come in looking for me on a regular basis. I got to meet many new people and there needs when they needed to met and on time.

Job security is an issue with constant aquisitions. Offices are sold and the new company that comes in downsizes, immediately. Willis makes no effort to offer placement at other locations for effected employees despite their outside job postings which indicate openings exist. Favoritism is definitely an issue, as well, and opportunities for advancement are not available.
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 7, 2016
Willis is not the place to be right now. It is a company in transition. New leadership is trying to make the company smaller, but the acquisition of Towers Watson changed that. Now the company is bigger but to no benefit to the employees. Associates are constantly uncertain of their futures. There have been no raises or bonuses handed out for nearly the last five years. Management does not take care of its people. Morale is low. People are looking to leave all the time. Workloads increase but pay does not.
Nice office, nice people
Little opportunity for advancement, no raises/bonuses
Poor human talent management and obvious favoritism

There is no advancement at this location; unless you are a favorite! So if you are, they will happily move you ahead of others. It is plain to see - several employees have different schedules, some work from home and if you need to have your schedule modified for personal reasons, they will not accommodate you. There is no proficient management and the place lacks positive morale. The pay is little and they work you to the ground. If you get more designations (they force you to) they will not pay you more after you get one either. Salaries amongst workers doing a similar job is all over the place. Overall, the worker bees are pretty awesome but, one word of caution: If you get a job at this office, know you will be stressed out, might experience bullying and will not move into different roles easily.
