    I worked at Turner and Townsend full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They were keen on paying consultants more because the more they pay you, the more money they can extract from the client to which you're assigned.

    Cons

    The focus is to put people that are billable in front of the client, so that they can extract more and more money from them. They want to spend as much of the client's money as possible. Completely void of any type of camaraderie or home-office involvement. Their focus is to sit you at the client's office and forget about you as long as they keep paying the invoices. Inability to move up unless you're from England...

    I have been working at Turner and Townsend full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Surrounded by experts. Multitude of potential industry exposure. Pliable schedule. Support for individual development. Strong upward mobility. Not micromanaged, but ample resources for guidance and assistance.

    Cons

    HQ is in the UK, so lacks some of the perks of having all of the company's support departments located in immediate proximity.... but hardly a noticeable disadvantage-if one at all. Just takes a little getting used to.
