Really good for beginners. Pays very low.

Engineer (Current Employee)
Mumbai

I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than a year

Pros1.There is a lot of variety in projects (though limited to high rise structures and stadiums).
2.Hands-on experience on big projects and you get very responsible roles which make you feel important and not just a someone working in the background.
3.You get to learn and put to use a lot of softwares used in this field.

Cons1.No training given. You will have to learn as you proceed ahead. That becomes kind of hectic.
2.Very poor compensations/bonuses.
3.They don't pay as much as they make you work. Coming on Saturdays and Sundays can become a routine later on when you reach a higher post.

Advice to Senior ManagementVery poor employee management. If you want your employees to stick around then please reward them appropriately for their work and don't just consider them cheap labour/resources. Don't try to make a person do the work of 2 people and pay him/her only for 1. Hire more or increase salary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

My first work experience after graduation in one of the best engineering firm.

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

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

ProsChallenging 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementIn 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Company

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

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

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

The friendliest engineering company I've worked for.

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat opportunity to move up

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

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement 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.

Great place to start a career.

Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsLots of interesting projects and good mentors. There are many intelligent people to learn from. Having TT on your resume is a plus to many employers and clients.

ConsSalaries are not very competitive. If you do not ask for what you are worth then they are willing to pay you as low as possible.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay should be commensurate with the status of the firm. It is not a privilege to work there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Challenging. Interesting people and projects.

Accounting (Current Employee)

I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexibility. Challenging when it should be. It never gets boring. I enjoy the people I work with, and there are always interesting projects to work on.

ConsManagement has high expectations. As they should, their expectations are reasonable. I do work a lot of overtime, but that is because I want to succeed.
