    Pros

    Because of its name and prestige, TT draws interesting clients and projects, giving you the opportunity to experience and learn a great deal even as an entry level engineer. Opportunities for inter-office transfer are available, and the company is generally flexible with respect to hours and vacations.

    Cons

    Considering the required skill level (MS degree, professional certifications, etc.), the long hours, and the amount of stress, the salary and benefits are dismal.

    Lack of solid leadership skills and collaboration coming from upper management. An incredibly top-heavy company. At the current rate of promotions and lack of hiring, everyone will become a vice-president and no one will be doing any "actual" work. A/E Industry outlook is grim; I wouldn't be surprised to see TT downsizing even more so over the next several years.

    Advice to Management

    Smarter and leaner upper management is required. Increased focus on improving technical staff benefits and rewards. Consider the possibility that your business model from 25 years ago will no longer be sustainable in the current market.

    Pros

    You'll be given a lot of responsibility and get to work on interesting projects. You're expected to know what you are doing and ask questions if you don't. Benefits, particularly medical, are good.

    Cons

    Occasionally projects are understaffed, but it's not the norm. Expect to work overtime as deadlines approach. Be prepared to do your own drafting on occasion.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, things are fairly good, but it would be nice to have more information about the state of the company.
