Good information sharing within the company.
Great office and working atmosphere, lot's of smart young people.

Cons

Growth within the company is difficult. Too many levels of titles. Very top heavy company.
Salaries are 10-15% lower compared to competitors.

Advice to Management

Provide more feedback than once a year review. Improve and encourage transfers/exchanges between company offices. Pay more competitive salaries to staff.

    Pros

    TT was a fun place to work because they have interesting, complex projects. My experience with the structure group left me with the feeling that I was working with very smart engineers.

    Cons

    In my position I did not receive very much in the way of guidance or evaluation. I was expected to be as knowledgeable as an engineer that had been working there for a year. I was not given clear instruction for simple tasks and often was left out of 'big picture' discussion of a project. I did not receive an evaluation from my supervisor when I was let go.

    Advice to Management

    I would have felt a lot more comfortable if the staff had been friendly to me. There is not much in the way of camaraderie, as every employee seemed preoccupied with their tasks. Managers would literally talk over my head to my cube mates as I sat and worked, neglecting to acknowledge my existence.

  2. You won't get promoted if you can not lie all the time

    Pros

    Great database of knowledge in Highrise building design field.

    Cons

    This company is cheap. The Senior Management get talented interns (J1-visa holders) from all over the world, who are ready to work 25 hours per day in order to be awarded with H1/B visa after internship is over. Later on you won't get promoted above "Senior Engineer" position if you can not lie all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out a quality of the design work done by un-experienced and ambitions youngsters. Pay attention to the design teams working on international projects.
