Think twice before accepting an offer from TW
T&R Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 10, 2012
Cons: compensation is below industry average and health insurance could be better.
Culture of workaholism is praised
- No regard for human beings.
- No respect for junior employees.
- Siloed culture per department. Almost impossible to make friends across departments.
Advice to Senior Management – Actually show that you care about people and take your own advice that you offer to clients.

An ever-changing company with room to grow.
Word Processing Specialist (Current Employee), White Plains, NYOctober 21, 2012
A typical day would consist of starting a document or presentation from scratch, or editing an existing document.

Before coming here, I never realized the importance of fonts and spacing, as well as the overall look of a document.

The hardest part of this job will be leaving those I have known for many years and those I have met when the two companies – more... (Towers Perrin and Watson Wyatt) merged.

The most enjoyable part ot working here was the ability to use my creativity as to how documents will look and read to our clients. – less

Weak Editorial/Marketing Group Leadership
Marketing Employee (Former Employee), Westchester, NYOctober 2, 2012
Pros: interesting subject matter
Cons: highly political
TW is full of brilliant consultants who are collaborative and easy to work with. Working in the Editorial group is another story. The Editorial director, who plans to retire in five years with full pension, wants to find the easiest way to do things rather than striving to do the best work. Her only worry is upsetting the apple cart. The culture of – more... Editorial -- as well as Marketing overall -- is non-collaborative. Silos dominate the marketing team so much that every new project presents political hurdles that need to be overcome. In addition, rather than being a relatively flat place to work, as most lean organizations are these days, it's very hierarchical and therefore perilous to navigate for the un-anointed. Strangely, the Marketing director never collaborates with anyone on any projects. And the Editorial director takes every chance to undermine her underlings if they fail not to act like servile minions. – less

Flexible workplace with great people but Stressful with low pay
Lead Benefits Administrator (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNSeptember 1, 2012
Pros: flexibility, people
Cons: demanding, stressful, pay, benefits
Best thing about Towers is the people. Great, smart, fun co-workers. Flexibility is great. You have the freedom to manage yourself and your work on a daily basis. No micro managing which is great. Management is very supportive. On the other hand it is a fast paced work environment to the extreme. The work can be very stressful and demanding. Long work – more... days are expected. It may balance out if the pay and benefits were better. Pay does not compensate for the amount of responsibility and demands. – less
