I worked at Tetra Tech full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Different divisions of the company are managed differently. In my division - strong focus on technical excellence, customer satisfaction, and employee empowerment. Interesting diversity of work assignments.

Cons

Company had gotten pretty big by the time I left, and felt more and more corporate & hierarchical - traits that were not there when I joined the company when it was much smaller. Heavy emphasis on billability, lots of administrative and business development activities expected on the side, while still doing billable client work during the normal workday.

    They will let you work independently as long as you do your work, they are not breathing down your neck.

    When people get salary, they can really work lots of hours.

    As BAS grew & was bought by parent Tetra Tech, management became nepotistic.

    I worked at Tetra Tech part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    first years learned quite a lot, pay was commensurate with performance (merit).

    Cons

    Nepotism runs wild as managers feel they'll be replaced by new owner (Tetra Tech), this caused the loss of various contracts since client hears about this miss-management, many good-hard working techs were laid off to replace them with "friends/family" , other mid level project managers were not included in the transfer agreement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some feed back from lower level employees (promote the "do-whats-right" tip line) as they can pinpoint better the reason why contracts were lost, make sure these employees are not part of the favoritism
