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

Pros

Projects 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.

Cons

Can 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

    I worked at Thornton Tomasetti full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a part of TT that I identify with: interesting projects, engaged and ambitious engineers, lots of young guys brimming with energy, senior folks that make themselves available, smart and kind project managers. For me, the number one attraction of TT was this culture of freely sharing the resources internally.

    Cons

    Rushed submittals with only cursory checks. Poorly managed manpower, with over- and understaffed projects overseen by the same people at the same office. Poor feedback and little appreciation shown for your work. The idea is that your hourly wage can keep you at your desk for any length of time. High turnover that nobody takes cues from.
