Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – May 8, 2014
Very little understanding for work/life balance. Good benefits but raises and promotions are difficult to obtain. They like to have you do the next level job up without officially promoting or giving raise for new responsibilities.
Executive Compensation Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – May 31, 2012
Towers Watson is a great company to work for but was at the time of my employment there plagued with poor computer systems which would make an already tedious - more frustrating. Long hours would eventually result.
The job entailed a lot of the requirements to be self taught. Training was only sufficient in learning about the company but the core work – more... itself had a significantly steep learning curve. – less
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – October 20, 2014
On a typical day, I will lead client and internal calls to discuss system requirements, ongoing issues or future enhancements needed for a particular project. Internal calls are used to check the status on the team, status on project items and to mainly assess if we need a plan B. I've learned that using your resources is key to the role. Communication – more... and documentation are the strongest values to be a successful business analyst. The hardest part of my job can be juggling 5 different projects but communicating and consistently documenting my status on project items definitely help. The most enjoyable part of my job is breaking the system! That way I know it's been tested. – less
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Arlington, VA – June 26, 2014
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.
Production / Mailroom Associate (Former Employee), Stamford, CT – April 24, 2014
Pros: i was able to get to know amazing people at a great job
Cons: i was laid off
Print and collate documents for clients. I did quality assurance, making sure all printed documents are ready for delivery to clients as requested.
I learned to listen to co-workers and then voice an opinion, is the best way come up with new ideas to improve customer service and the company.
The hardest part of the job is when a client feels over – more... whelmed in there work and finds it hard to communication the issue. It slows down work productivity, My responsibility is to find out the miss communication, and reassure the client that the situation is understood will be resolved on time.
The enjoyable part of the job, is working with co-workers and clients getting the job request for the day done. – less
