    I worked at Thornton Tomasetti as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - you will learn exponentially during the early phase of your job
    - opportunity to work on global projects(best projects of the world)
    - friendly and cooperative coworkers

    Cons

    - salary is on lesser side(which is justified as it is a core consulting firm)
    - as the company is US based, it faces tough competition from indian companies for design projects being developed in india, thus results in less number of design projects and more peer reviewing.

    High standard of design.
    Plenty of resources to enanhce your interest at work, like weekly seminars.

    Work-life balance: extra hours are paid, still it might be preferable to spend that time with family instead than working.
    The compensation is a kind of low, when compared to salaries of other companies in the same region.

    Pros

    Projects are some of the best in the world in terms of innovation and global spotlight. Employees are very skilled and helpful to each other.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be very bad. Employees are often overloaded and then expected to prioritize unreasonable deadlines ahead of personal life. Compensation is not comparable to other firms, and overtime almost seems expected instead of appreciated. Overall, it's easy to feel taken advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly support the staff for deadlines to avoid burnout. The morale can be dismal at times. Consider better training and organization of staff, hiring appropriately to avoid overloading employees.

    Pros

    Good employees, hardworking, well educated, and dedicated to their work.

    Cons

    Lot of talk about how great the company is but doesn't translate to the typically employee. Across the country people are unhappy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff.
