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

    Pros

    Projects are varied and interesting. Work with very talented staff all over the country. Depth of new learning is incredible.

    Cons

    The work load is very intense and the compensation is not necessarily commensurate with the personal sacrifice to meet deadlines and project commitments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who are working hard in the trenches or acquire additional staff to share the load. Focus less on sustainability, which adds cost to the company, and more on profitability which should translate in better compensation all the way down to the employees performing work. Compensate employees for overtime.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Flexibility. Challenging when it should be. It never gets boring. I enjoy the people I work with, and there are always interesting projects to work on.

    Management has high expectations. As they should, their expectations are reasonable. I do work a lot of overtime, but that is because I want to succeed.
