    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, stellar management, employee recognition, mid and annual review plan was geared to growing employees and helping them to further their career.

    Pros

    I actually loved working here. It was a great place, with cool work, and generally great people. The intellectual property here is amazing and if you want to surround yourself with really smart people, this is it. Towers has an entrepreneurial feel to it compared to some other HR consultancies.

    Cons

    As with any large consulting firm, the top ranks are filled with people who have alliances and have known each other for ages. Breaking in there can be difficult, and if someone does not like you, that could be the kiss of death. Senior people have to figure out the right alignments.
