Actuarial Retirement Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 November 2018
I've learned a lot during my time in the retirement practice and got exposure to different projects that helped augment my understanding of the industry.
The people I worked with were very professional and they made me feel part of the team. We had many events that helped foster a great workplace culture that included volunteer days, exam passing parties and mentorship lunches.
Great Mentorship program
Long Hours, Lack of proper training for Contractees
A great place to work in where I learned a work-life integrated balance
Testing Team Leader (Former Employee) – National Capital Region – 12 November 2018
My stint in Willis Towers Watson has greatly enhanced my management and leadership skills. I worked with a great roster of individuals (Manual, Automation and Performance Testers). I was also given an opportunity to work in the UK in order to support our project deliverables. If given another opportunity, I would love to work for this organization again.
Data Encoder (Former Employee) – National Capital Region – 9 December 2017
It was my first job and I met people I never thought I'll meet. They taught me to be more flexible and be responsible. I was in graveyard shift and the work place is far from my home yet I still manage to come to office 1 hour early.
My tenured office mates are really approachable and nice to talk to even in non-work related topics. They are also thoughtful and always make us (contractual employees) feel comfortable and not neglected.
Free fruits and probiotic drink every Tuesday, free lunch for Saturday over time and free foods every peak season
Consulting Analyst, Executive Compensation (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 November 2017
The office's friendly staff were the highlight of the experience at Willis Towers Watson. For entry-level employees, though, salary did not match the tradeoff in work-life balance that came with the job.
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.
