    Really good for beginners. Pays very low.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Mumbai

    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.

    Good old boys club, as long as you are a member you can do no wrong and The money flows.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Associate (Current Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward 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.

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

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

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

    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.

    Good Company

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

    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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge the non-engineers

    The friendliest engineering company I've worked for.

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

    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 company with high quality and high aspirations

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHigh profile projects, challenging projects, lots of resources, great offices, well respected, intelligent engineers, good support staff, global reach

    ConsTT is a very large company that can reduced prospects of moving up the hierarchy and staying with the comapny for a long time

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't expand too fast

    Great place to start a career.

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

    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
