Director (Former Employee) – London and Reigate – 2 January 2018
I had a very long and productive career in WTW. The company truly lives up to its values and the people within are amazingly talented - it was always the people that kept me there - at all levels. The culture is about excellence and client service.
Excellent career opportunities and a supportive environment but poor work/life balance. Workload is intense and not for the faint hearted. There are a lot of experienced people who like things done a certain way making it hard to change but definitely not impossible.
Adminstrator (Former Employee) – Epsom, Surrey – 9 May 2017
Interesting role with variation day to day. Management overall were supportive. Most enjoyable was the variation and the people. I learnt a lot about the different software that companies use and the different programmes used to make a successful business. I enjoyed all of the work I had to do.
At Towers Watson I worked alongside my team leader who effectively taught me about the pensions industry as well as how to handle my own workload but to also work as a team. Frequent day courses to further my understanding of the industry were very educational.
PENSION ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) – Redhill – 26 April 2016
I enjoyed the busy environment. Most co workers were lovely. Happy to help if you had questions (of which I had lots!) I have learned a lot though as I knew nothing of pensions at all and can now calculated and fumble my way though a pension scheme. I enjoyed the calculations side of the role. Very few and far between though on my team. Mostly automated calculations. Not much banter or chat going on as so much pressure and time constraints to work too.
great pensions (obviously) and free tea and coffee
Pensions Administrator (Former Employee) – Redhill, ENG – 7 January 2016
Personally enjoyed the team I worked for, however I did notice that managers were not that keen to help employees progress - they would much rather keep the employees to themselves! Very friendly and comfortable place to work though.
Software Client Support Coordinator (Former Employee) – Reigate – 21 July 2015
Very well known firm with great employee benefits that boost the value of your overall salary but very demanding. Not a very good work/life balance and my team was extremely under resourced. Working in the right area of the company would definitely have vast benefits and advancement options - unfortuately this was not an area I was working in, so despite the vast amount of knowledge and experience I have gained there is nowhere else for me to go and my family life was suffering as a result of the demanding work level
Great benefits, great learning curve
high expectations and vry demanding for little reward or recognition
