    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of the offices are small and provide a "small company" feel. I believe the company wants to be the best at what they do and they are implimenting changes to achieve their goals.

    Cons

    The primary growth was through acquisition and therefore there is a lack of cohesiveness and consistent deliverables across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If staff retention is important, you need to involve staff in some decisions, especally ones that affect them directly. Restructure the company such that it would be more economical to utilize company skills. Make movement within the company, ie changing to another Tt entity, easier.

    Pros

    Technical prowess, good people, nice people, fair, willing to teach, embrace those pursuing BD opportunities

    Cons

    the usual….it's a fair company; the benefits are average, the incentives are nearly average, more interaction with those higher than your direct director would be nice, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your top employees and don't treat them like average employees

    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the best scientists & engineers in the business.

    Cons

    Extremely long work hours when you have a project. You have to find your own projects on your own time and you receive no management support. You will be laid off instantly if you are not charging your time to a project. No recognition for a job well done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like commodities. Invest in your staff and reward results. Hire someone who knows how to market your services, and don't be afraid to go after new markets.

    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Lakewood, CO

    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There were decent promotions and every once in a while, there would be fun events. Discounts provided by the company and environment could've been worse.

    Cons

    The whole package left a lot to be desired, especially in terms of compensation. Some people were promoted fast, some were not. Tolerance and training were not the order of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some more time working within to promote, less cloak & dagger

    I have been working at Tetra Tech

    Pros

    Each individual office is run and managed differently, so there's a lot of variability between offices. My office is very communal, and my boss provided a lot of room for opportunity and growth to all employees.

    Cons

    Upper management is all about the bottom line and don't seem to care much about the employees.
