I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Very clear about needs and great with communication. They were clear about their budget and have paid reasonably promptly to date.

None that I have experienced in my dealings with the Los Angeles and Irvine offices of this company to date.

    I worked at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work is good, challenging and has a learning environment.

    Cons

    Pays low salaries to its employees, which ultimately leads to less job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can reduce attrition by more job satisfaction by paying competitive salaries as other companies.

    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging projects. Wide variety of projects. If you forget you have a life outside of work, you will do very well.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay. Though that seems to be the norm in the industry.
    Worst was the "I am the boss, you are the employee" kind of attitude by senior management. More than once I was told "to keep my boss happy!!!"
    Not a good team environment.
    The reason for bad bonus and lousy pay increase is ofcourse the "recession" though it is clear from the work load and fees that the office is doing well. And then when senior staff keep getting promoted every year, you wonder if all they tell you is true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of all your employees, not just the senior staff.
