    I have been working at Tetra Tech full-time

    Pros

    Easy access to HR and other support staff
    Asks my opinion of contracts
    Free flowing communication
    Free healthcare (bottom level but hey free and other great options available)
    Stock options!

    Cons

    I already had insurance and did not realize they gave me free insurance. Lead to headaches but they were very good throughout the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Keep up the support and you will keep a loyal following. For such a big company they really reach out and made me feel like I am important.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Tetra Tech part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Terrible leave policy, and at many subsidiaries you will have the "option" of applying leave to your timesheet to reach 40 hours, which is almost every week. (As a result you will rarely be able to take an actual day off because most of your leave will go toward simply getting a paycheck.) No opportunity for professional growth or advancement, and Tetra Tech is really just a big holding company, so if your division gets slow you will be laid off (or "reduced in status," which is to say made part time involuntarily, as I was) rather than transferred to another division with more work.

    Advice to Management

    Management is completely disengaged; I can't even name most of the officers, especially after the last reorganization (Tetra Tech reorganizes about every 3 weeks). You should think about the reasons you can no longer claim to have an a turnover rate than is low by industry standards.

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

    Pros

    TT has a lot of large contracts which lead to some large and interesting projects. The Oakland, CA office is relaxed and employs a lot of great people.

    Cons

    The works is often cyclical and the need to keep your utilization rate close to 100% means a lot of scrounging for work during slow periods. Large, corporate firm with a lot of the large, corporate firm bureaucracy.

    A lot of the projects provided a benefit to society which was nice. The people I worked with were great.
