    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial focus on developing work.
    Reasonable balance of expectations for work, family, and free time.
    Friendly staff and collaborative atmosphere at most locations and between P&L centers.
    Diversity of technical expertise available to build project teams.
    Competitive pay and bonuses paid out for high performers.
    A variety of initiatives are available for employees to take part in and grow associated business lines.
    Financially outperforming their peer group.
    Stable company without the acquisition headaches numerous competitors are dealing with.
    Long serving senior leadership team that reward employees for innovation and moving the needle.
    On the commercial side of the company there is less bureaucracy and over lording of approvals by management than I have seen at other firms (i.e. CH2M, ERM, etc.)
    Record revenues (2018) and backlog (2019).

    Cons

    Medium size firm that has enough people that it is hard to keep track of where all the work is being conducted.
    Internal company competition between P&Ls. However, this has been improving with time, restructuring that eliminates competition, and senior leadership recognition of successful internal collaborations on projects and shared clients.
