    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Thornton Tomasetti full-time

    Pros

    Great place for entry level engineers straight out of school. You learn a lot very fast. The employees are a great resource of technical and industry expertise that you would have a harder time getting at a smaller company. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Poorly managed company. Terrible turnover, especially of mid-level (5-10 years experience) engineers, but that is overall the reality of large companies unless you have 100% buy-in into company culture (i.e., the rat race). Very long work hours, but again that is the reality of the architecture and engineering industry, especially at large companies.
