    Pros

    Exposure to various clients and industries.

    Flexible work environment depending upon the office and the manager.

    Cons

    You'll do the same work over and over again. If you get stuck with a people manager who doesn't care about development you can get dead ended. Some offices afford you more flexibility than others. Average benefits. I highly recommend not starting your career at Towers. Other firms do a much better job of developing their people. Go to Hay, Pay Governance or Pear Meyer if you are starting your career in this field. You'll be treated much better as an analyst or project manager.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of picking people managers. Look at what offices have high turnover/haven't promoted people and ask yourself what has been the constant.
