    Pros

    Cool projects - when I worked there we had some of the more interesting structural engineering projects to work on.

    Cons

    The people "running" the place (which is about 45% of the company) are unbelievably inept. It is clear that they hate engineering and love to pretend they are something else...business people I guess. But they're awful at that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I offer no advice, I believe you are all very happy with yourselves and that's good for you. Congrats on that.

    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1.There is a lot of variety in projects (though limited to high rise structures and stadiums).
    2.Hands-on experience on big projects and you get very responsible roles which make you feel important and not just a someone working in the background.
    3.You get to learn and put to use a lot of softwares used in this field.

    Cons

    1.No training given. You will have to learn as you proceed ahead. That becomes kind of hectic.
    2.Very poor compensations/bonuses.
    3.They don't pay as much as they make you work. Coming on Saturdays and Sundays can become a routine later on when you reach a higher post.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very poor employee management. If you want your employees to stick around then please reward them appropriately for their work and don't just consider them cheap labour/resources. Don't try to make a person do the work of 2 people and pay him/her only for 1. Hire more or increase salary.
