    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to move up

    Cons

    Experience may not be the most popular or transferable with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great, but the only fly by idea/suggestion I would have for management is to sponsor a study group for younger engineers to get their professional engineering license. Having a PE will make management look good as well as the employees that carry them and the company in general.

    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    High standard of design.
    Plenty of resources to enanhce your interest at work, like weekly seminars.
    Counseling with collegues located on different countries.
    Chance to expand own professional network fast and on 360°.

    Cons

    Work-life balance: extra hours are paid, still it might be preferable to spend that time with family instead than working.
    The compensation is a kind of low, when compared to salaries of other companies in the same region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the hourly tarif.

    Pros

    Challenging environment with unique large scale project. You will find yourself working in team with young, kind and smart people always willing to take the time to help you out or sit with you to go over a problem. Working in this company you will see a wide range of aspect of this job, from the basic ones down to the most complex details and solutions.

    Cons

    The reward never comes for free, serious commitment to the project deliveries as well as towards your coworkers is required to everyone. High requirements in terms of multitasking and ability to work under pressure with lack of sufficient time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my honest opinion the management needs to be more developed to avoid gaps in the hierarchy within the office and articulate the task force in a wiser way to avoid overloading of the employers as well as potential loss of interest in the job or profession.

    Pros

    The group I worked with was great. My manager was amazing and taught me so much. Location is good, lots of restaurants around.

    Cons

    Pay is awful. Benefits are not great. If you aren't an engineer, you're viewed as worthless to anyone in management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge the non-engineers

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects and good mentors. There are many intelligent people to learn from. Having TT on your resume is a plus to many employers and clients.

    Cons

    Salaries are not very competitive. If you do not ask for what you are worth then they are willing to pay you as low as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay should be commensurate with the status of the firm. It is not a privilege to work there.

    rewarding experience

    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in New York, NY

    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.

    Pros

    Work is good, challenging and has a learning environment.

    Cons

    Pays low salaries to its employees, which ultimately leads to less job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can reduce attrition by more job satisfaction by paying competitive salaries as other companies.
