cultures vary from city to city. Casual business attire.
Records Specialist/Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 12 February 2014
no opportunity for advancement in either administrative assistant division or office services division. Cultures vary from city to city. Some offices are suit and tie. Some are casual business attire. Good people, opportunity for fun culture, cold corporate management.
jeans to work, some free lunches once in a while
cold corporate management style, not serious about keeping good administrative talent (despite trying to say the opposite)
Senior Actuarial Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 March 2016
Good to start as new grads, provides systematic training to new hires. Big global company, exposure to lots of different types of clients/projects. Due to the high turnover rate, new people get chance to step up to junior-mid level quickly
good compensations, lots of training/learning opportunities, operation in structure
need to work overtime frequently, lots of stress from work, hardworking might not be recognized, new tools/system reduce work efficiency dramatically
Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 May 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 – 31 May 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 itself had a significantly steep learning curve.
