I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great portfolio of projects
Some really great gems of people are scattered throughout the company
Good resources
Opportunities to transfer between offices & practice sectors (pending economy & availability)

Cons

Sink or swim mentality
Culture may not be for everyone
Work/life balance is often a struggle
Culture/values/outlook vary between local offices (could also be a pro)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remind Management as the company grows and becomes more and more "corporate" to not forget the "keep it real" values of the earlier years.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

    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
