Invoice Processing Analyst (Former Employee), Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines – February 28, 2014
Pros: excitement using espionage tecniques and relationship building
Cons: low salary as compared with competitors
A typical day at work begins with meetings of surprise assignments and finalization of audit reports to be submitted for scrutiny of supervisors. I learned a lot of banking operations and processes in my stint with this company.
The management is determined to beat competition. It is also focused on how to eliminate if not lessen business risks of banking. Co-workers put their best efforts to make the team always on the go.
The hardest part of the job is being skeptic about possibility of fraud that makes suspicion one of the standard operating procedure. It requires detailed investigation and balancing relationships with fellow bank employees.
The most enjoyable part of the job is its non-routinary nature since every assignment is a different challenge.

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.

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 itself had a significantly steep learning curve.
