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

Pros

Great portfolio of projects
Some really great gems of people are scattered throughout the company
Good resources
Opportunities to transfer between offices & practice sectors (pending economy & availability)

Cons

Sink or swim mentality
Culture may not be for everyone
Work/life balance is often a struggle
Culture/values/outlook vary between local offices (could also be a pro)

Advice to Management

Remind Management as the company grows and becomes more and more "corporate" to not forget the "keep it real" values of the earlier years.

    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.

    Advice to Management
