    Pros

    flexible hours, work environment is at your own pace unless deadlines closing in

    Cons

    not a lot of mentor-ship or learning, as a junior EIT you get stuck with the work noone wants to do and you pretty much end up as a drafter

    Pros

    Day one you feel that your not micromanaged

    Cons

    Everything after day 1 is where the company culture comes out. Deceit, deception, games, clicks, backstabbing, and complete unprofessionalism accross the board. Worst company I’ve ever worked for. The only highlight is when I left it made every future job seem like the greatest place in the world!!!

    Advice to Management

    Promote within the rockstars that are true leaders and have the power and trust of the folks underneath them. Stop watching the greatest talent walk right out the door because the company isn’t up to par with the rest of the world as far as salaries, PTO, Bonuses, clear path for career advancements, and work remote (Flex) unfriendly!

    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have all of the benefits of working at a large company: healthcare, 401k, and a general sense of job security.

    Cons

    Tetra Tech is still primarly a boy's club. The old guard still seems hesitant to approach women as professional equals. The difference between the way that male counterparts get spoken to is immediately evident. Their marketing does a good job of making it seem like it is a very inclusive place to work but they have their issues.

    There is also a negative company culture where upper management staff is allowed to verbally berate you in front of your coworkers and nobody will ever step in. They tiptoe the fine line between verbal harassment very well. There are certain repeat offenders that are consistently allowed to bring their staff to tears.

    You are also severely judged and discounted if you don't want to work every weekend and weeknight. The work-life balance is very poor and there's no clear path for professional advancement.

    You receive a maximum of 2%-3% annual raise that needs to be approved by your supervisor's supervisor if it's going to be anything more. The pay is low for the industry and the geographic area. There is also zero training provided upon hiring but the expectation is that you should hit the ground running.

    Tetra Tech is one company with several units and some units pay less generously than others and are more disorganized. You're experience depends on your unit. The units don't work together well and there's animosity within the same building.

    Advice to Management

    Train your upper management and hold them accountable for their inappropriate behavior.

    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work in the mining industry.

    Cons

    I was hired for a job as a geologist that I have over 20 years of experience with. Two weeks after I started I was told I was to take an uneducated unhealthy labor job I had initially turned down or I did not have a job. All I had done at the job thus far was labor, Nothing professional yet.

    Advice to Management

    Quit screwing over employees. A job description agreed upon is the job you should keep a person on. I spent a lot of time getting hired only to get screwed over. The manager was a horrible human who had no management skills. He never even came out to the work site. I worked without any breaks. This was all his doing not the contracted company. I knew at that point I had to leave and never accept work from this company again.
