    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Can work autonomously. Direct supervisor is awesome and team I work with is dedicated to producing high quality work. People are very friendly and always willing to help. Positive team atmosphere. EXCELLENT benefits and Time Off With Pay options.

    Cons

    Initial training could use a little tune up. Don't work much outside of the geophysics team (but sometimes that is nice :) ).

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate initial training to make it feel more concrete. Employees enjoy on the job training, but it is also nice to get a broad "company" training to learn about the company philosophy's, and morals.

    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly office with passionate people. Very respectable technically and good principles towards industry growth. Great new merger and will likely keep growing.

    Cons

    Terrible systems and no clear path for upward mobility. While they value technical excellence, there is not a clear path for growth for junior staff to move up. While the merger will prove beneficial for the company, actually merging company policies has been quite difficult.
