    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time for 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.

    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people working here.

    Cons

    You will find it hard to grow professionally here. There is no real investment in bettering employees and diversifying their skills. Your salary and benefits are pretty limited and not bound to improve. Management is just focused on getting by and making their margins.

    I worked at Tetra Tech full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Opportunity to work on a variety projects across a wide geography -Many of the folks that work there are great people -

    Cons

    -Upper level management does not care about employees' professional development -No work-life balance, they expect you to drop everything and fly out to work on a given project with little notice -Very little thought put to moving employees laterally when work dries up at a given location--i.e. they'd rather lay off an employee when two hours south there's an opening that the employee could easily have filled.

    Great people, great projects, lots of opportunity if you have that sales zeal and desire to make the company money.

    Cons

    For focused scientist and engineers that don't have a quarterly mentality, keep your six months emergency savings up to date, you'll probably need it sooner or later.
