    Hi everyone!

    I have an internship offer from Towers Watson for Actuarial Consulting in benefits, and an upcoming AC from Mercer for the same LOB. As far as I know TW and Mercer are pretty similar and the market leaders in Benefits. I will just like to hear from people with regards to their experiences with the two companies, if possible. I know I'm getting slightly ahead of myself by posting this now, but if I do get the Mercer offer I will only have a couple of days to make a decision before the TW one expires.

    So far my experience with TW is that their HR seems very efficient, the people I met during the AC were all very friendly and helpful, and overall it seems like a good environment. As for Mercer, I asked HR a question via email last Wednesday and am yet to get a reply...

    Will really appreciate any input at all! Thanks everyone!

    Giving you an offer that expires - that's a shabby trick.

    Well, to be fair to them it's not feasible to keep it open for an indefinite amount of time either. I think I will talk to the HR and see if I can postpone the deadline by a bit.
What's the best type of cheese?
