    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Projects are high profile, interesting. Get to work with the world's top architects. General feeling of pride about working here.

    Seems that everyone who works here is smart, friendly, and involved in extra curriculars. (there's always a couple though...)

    The company does a good job of fostering collaboration and inclusiveness across all levels and offices.

    Cons

    Can be alot of work for less pay than other structural firms. But, they're designing parking garages in the suburbs, so... not too bad of a con.

    Could get stuck working for one boss only

    Advice to Management

    Keep periodically checking

    Pros

    Great opportunity to move up

    Cons

    Experience may not be the most popular or transferable with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great, but the only fly by idea/suggestion I would have for management is to sponsor a study group for younger engineers to get their professional engineering license. Having a PE will make management look good as well as the employees that carry them and the company in general.
