Poor computer systems
Executive Compensation Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 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

I've learned so much at TW! The other business analysts I work with are a wealth of knowledge and provide much by way of support. The hardest part of this job was lack of training provided.

Senior Business Analyst
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 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

Good management and co-workers.

Company is changing and the new businesses are the "future" so current large lines of business aren't seeing good growth and future prospects.

Unexciting
Actuarial Intern (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 24, 2014
Pros: decent work-life balance
Cons: low pay, poor managment
Retention is really poor at Towers Watson. Projects tend to be repetitive and do not challenge one's thinking. Management at the Houston office is sterile and do not promote any office culture.
