    I worked at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Space to grow! Great community where your voice is heard, when needed.

    Cons

    Pay could be better! Sometimes, new employees with similar background end up getting paid higher than the people that have grown within the company.

    Great projects but work is often undervalued and unappreciated.

    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    Great projects and new learning experiences but overworked and lack of progression in compensation

    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Projects are varied and interesting. Work with very talented staff all over the country. Depth of new learning is incredible.

    Cons

    The work load is very intense and the compensation is not necessarily commensurate with the personal sacrifice to meet deadlines and project commitments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who are working hard in the trenches or acquire additional staff to share the load. Focus less on sustainability, which adds cost to the company, and more on profitability which should translate in better compensation all the way down to the employees performing work. Compensate employees for overtime.

    Former Employee - Engineer in New York, NY (US)

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

    Pros

    Challenging environment with unique large scale project. You will find yourself working in team with young, kind and smart people always willing to take the time to help you out or sit with you to go over a problem. Working in this company you will see a wide range of aspect of this job, from the basic ones down to the most complex details and solutions.

    Cons

    The reward never comes for free, serious commitment to the project deliveries as well as towards your coworkers is required to everyone. High requirements in terms of multitasking and ability to work under pressure with lack of sufficient time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my honest opinion the management needs to be more developed to avoid gaps in the hierarchy within the office and articulate the task force in a wiser way to avoid overloading of the employers as well as potential loss of interest in the job or profession.

    Pros

    The group I worked with was great. My manager was amazing and taught me so much. Location is good, lots of restaurants around.

    Pay is awful. Benefits are not great. If you aren't an engineer, you're viewed as worthless to anyone in management

    Pros

    Great opportunity to move up

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
