    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great staff throughout the office are supportive and help challenge each other to learn and perform at their best level. The staff is very cohesive and works well together with minimal (but of course some) office politics. Great variety of project work from high rise to k-12 offers a variety of project responsibility.

    Cons

    Can be long hours to excel among a competitive group. Office leadership may spend too much effort coming up with strategies for improvement/advancement of the office before enacting them.

    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.
