    T.Y. Lin International is an excellent civil and structural engineering firm. It possesses a very long history of quality design for multi-national, multi-billion dollars worth of design.

    A very well organized firm with only the highest quality of structural and civil engineering employees. The founding father; Professor Tung Yuen Lin, S.E.

    Four Stars; easily.

    Growing quite rapidly. Becoming very large.

    Pros

    Work environment is great, co-workers are very skilled, knowledgable, sharp, and friendly and always willing to help. It seems to be a priority of the company to not only hire people that are technically savy, but very personable with great personalities as well; the culture here is awesome. Projects are interesting but not overwhelming and the company is rapidly growing and expanding its disciplines.

    Cons

    This was my first full time job out of college. Sometimes the more senior guys are just so busy you end up feeling idle since they aren't always around to check in with.

    Advice to Management

    They really don't need my advice, there's definitely a nice balance of work ethic, personality, and experience in place. There are also good efforts to promote bonding outside of work.
