    I worked at Terracon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good consulting company. I belong to the geotechnical department that specialized in foundation, soil improvement and other related aspect of soil analyses. Also did pile load tests, mini piles and helical pile installation.

    Cons

    This is a Kansas based engineering firm that set a New Jersey office specializing in soil improvement and development. Hope that they can get more projects fort their talented engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Hope they can get more projects in New Jersey.

    Interview

    Brief. It seemed very rushed. Poor post-interview communication. It was unclear to the team exactly what is was that they needed. Overall, did not feel very thorough. Not the type of interview that one can prepare for beforehand beyond the basics.
