  1.  

    Great company. Very good at investing time and energy into its people. Feels like a family environment.

    Pros

    The group of people and projects you work with/on are pretty diverse. Not too much else to say.

    Cons

    Terrible Management. Tighe & Bond touts tier core values, but all members of management refuse to follow them. Unless you are a waste water engineer you are a second/third class citizen. If your looking for a position at Tighe & Bond, unless you are a waste water engineer keep looking. Need to be wary of management since they shift blame onto everyone else besides themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs a MAJOR shakeup. Each division in the company should have at least one member on the board. You cant have the entire company board, including the president be comprised of waste water engineers, especially when it accounts for only about 1/4 of your revenue.

    I worked at Tighe & Bond full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The retirement benefits are pretty good; however they appear to be trending downward. Fun group of employees to work with. All in all it is not a terrible place to work but there are certainly better. Retirement benefits, vacation, sick time and holidays used to be very, very good...no longer.

    Cons

    Its a company of engineers, environmental scientists, wetland scientists, regulatory compliance specialists...but make no mistake it is run by engineers. Everything needs to fit neatly into a box (metaphor) and there is extreme resistance to doing things differently. If you're a Professional Engineer you can do OK. If you work in any of the other disciplines, you'd be better off finding somewhere else.

    You're professional advancement is based on who you have in senior management advocating for you.

    They provide you an annual compensation statement showing you your base salary, the additional pay for extra hours worked, 401k contribution, bonuses and profit sharing. They also include their portion of your health insurance within your statement to try and make the "bottom line" compensation look higher than what it is. What does that tell you?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sacrificing employee benefits to improve the bottom line. Pay attention to who the performers actually are...not just those that take credit for it. Stop ignoring problems in the hopes that they will go away. They won't.

    I worked at Tighe & Bond full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, flexible work arrangements, opportunity to work on a variety of projects, people I worked with good mentors

    Cons

    lack of training, rarely given the benefit of the doubt is something went wrong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. Everyone always stressed the importance of communication to me - yet, management set a poor example of good communication.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great to work with
    Great benefits

    Cons

    You have to be an engineer to really get ahead. Other departments don't get the same opportunities.
    Senior management appears to be a little "out of touch"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all groups in the company the same. The environmental scientists are just as important as the engineers.
