Difficult colleagues
I was working there as a contractor. Some of them did not have respect to us. I was a bad experience working over there. Luckily I got a Job at DOT and love this place and work here until I retire but unfortunately, there is no room for promotion that is the only reason I'm looking for another so that I can grow and learn more and more.

Strong company culture. Colleagues work as one team
I am proud to say I worked for Willis Towers Watson for more than 10 years and am honored to still have some good friends from there. My team and I were able to provide outstanding support to the HRBPs in the North America as well as contingency global support. Everyone genuinely cared about each other personally and worked together as a team. Additionally, the tasks were personally challenging and matched my career goals. I don't really see any harder part of my work as everyone was ready to cross train peer when needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was when I was training new team member. I felt like I was contributing to someone's career and giving back what was given to me.

Poor Work/Life Balance - "Pass the buck" mentality
The workplace culture is militant in this job. There is hardly any work/life balance implemented in this position. You are reprimanded for being 2 min late.

typical corporate consulting culture
WTW is your typical consulting firm. Stressful billable hours based culture on the consulting side. More relaxed productivity based culture on the corporate side.

Fast paced, hard working environment
Good company overall. You need to be in charge of you. Set boundaries that accommodate your work-life balance, but still allow you to put in some extra work when it's needed. Negotiate your salary before accepting a position. As the reward structure is not super flexible to bend for special cases. There can be a lot of opportunities if you are motivated for additional challenges. Those opportunities don't come with reward - the reward comes later.
Pros
Alternate work arrangements, great people, interesting work
Cons
Work load can become overwhelming if you don't advocate for yourself

Very Diverse workplace
Working for the Risk and Financial Services department was fun and rewarding. I was extremely happy to become involved in the invoice of client needs once services were rendered. Oracle database was the driving force of our billing concepts.

The Most rewarding part of the job was working with a wonderful group of people worldwide.

Awesome, productive company that always put learning first.
I had the opportunity to be employed by this great company for nearly 5 years. The culture, standards and building itself are all 5 start. My employment ended unfortunately, due to a merger and subsequent bout of layoffs. I would definitely work here again. I have only good things to say about Towers Watson. The knowledge and relationships that I gained here are priceless.

Invests in Associates
TW invests in their associates and believe in developing their talent. Collaboration with colleagues is highly valued. Work/Life balance is a focus, but can be difficult during times with tight deadlines.
