The friendliest engineering company I've worked for.

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat opportunity to move up

ConsExperience may not be the most popular or transferable with other companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is great, but the only fly by idea/suggestion I would have for management is to sponsor a study group for younger engineers to get their professional engineering license. Having a PE will make management look good as well as the employees that carry them and the company in general.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

High profile projects, top notch engineers

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than 3 years

ProsProjects are high profile, interesting. Get to work with the world's top architects. General feeling of pride about working here.

Seems that everyone who works here is smart, friendly, and involved in extra curriculars. (there's always a couple though...)

The company does a good job of fostering collaboration and inclusiveness across all levels and offices.

ConsCan be alot of work for less pay than other structural firms. But, they're designing parking garages in the suburbs, so... not too bad of a con.

Could get stuck working for one boss only

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep periodically checking
