    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time

    Pros

    Company typically has a lot of federal work and you stay busy. Projects are challenging and many high quality people work there. Is a good place to cut your teeth.

    Cons

    Little upward mobility. You are asked to work more than typical 40 hours but not allowed to bill that time, so there is no way to track your work and you "donate" hours.

    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Mid level management is a mess, project engineers take any work that they can get to keep the numbers looking good. Engineers are typically young and inexperienced with project management which means that there is always a panic when a project is due and they find that there is not enough resources to produce a quality product by deadline. Overtime is expected due to poor project management and finger pointing is rampant between offices. Layoffs are common when numbers are low. Layoffs typically start at the bottom. Brown nosing really does pay off at Tetra Tech such as sitting next to the big guys during staff meetings, asking a lot of useless questions and laughing at stupid jokes by management. Very 80's style management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality not just numbers. Focus on client retention by providing a quality product. Send young project engineers to training before you just throw them into the fire.
