    Good, smart people. Reasonable amount of diversity in terms of interesting projects. Reasonable amount (not too much, not too little) of freedom to choose topics you might be able to focus on.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and clear in setting goals for career advancement and performance bonuses.

    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are really good to work with. Generally very collaborative and helpful and supportive. Projects are interesting, if you're on the right team. Lots of good internal resources.

    Cons

    Long work hours, but salaries are only middle of the pack. (This is OK if you get paid overtime, but it's rougher if you're on salary.) As the company has grown, the amount of bureaucracy has increased

    Advice to Management

    corporate bureaucracy sometimes gets in the way of getting projects done efficiently. focus your efforts more on streamlining the way people work, not on generating more tracking logs and financial reports.
