    I worked at Tetra Tech (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is filled with a number of good, high quality individuals if you are willing to spend the time trying to find them.

    Cons

    The corporate structure is that of a number small organizations forced together as a conglomerate with very little corporate identity. This creates an environment of infighting for work when that would be more beneficially directed outward.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the total number of P&L centers in order to reduce some of the internal conflict and work sharing issues.

    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were nice, competent, and very pleasant to work with. Medical/vision/dental is fairly decent.

    Cons

    Salaries are below market. The politics are unbearable and may cause you to lose your job through no fault of your own. There is no communication in the entire company, you may be lied to, prepare to fight for your severance if you get laid off, which you will, it's only a matter of time. If you're salaried and work is slow, you may be changed to hourly status so the company saves a few bucks. No worries, you'll be back on salary the moment they need you to work over 40 hours. Don't expect much time off, you'll have to use it to get a halfway decent paycheck once you're on hourly, so expect to take your vacations unpaid. There will not be a direction for your business unit, no goal, nothing other than an expected 20% growth year over year, at any cost, even if it means bidding against another business unit...

    Advice to Management

    If you've hired people you don't trust, it's on you. If not, trust them and stop micromanaging them. Stop the intra-TT bidding wars. And stop managing people by fear of layoffs, actually recognize you have some talented workers, and treat them as such.
