    I have been working at Thornton Tomasetti full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great bunch of incredibly bright and talented guys and girls who work hard to please their customers
    A variety of interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    Little respect is given by the management team to junior colleagues
    A fairly negative working atmosphere exists from employees who feel they are powerless to influence or suggest improvements

    Advice to Management

    Break down the old fashioned chain of command structure and give staff authority to make decisions.
    Treat everyone equally and don't have 'Favourites' who receive preferential treatment

    Pros

    There's an expert in everything somewhere at Thornton Tomasetti. And everyone is happy and open to share their knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    Pieces of Thornton Tomasetti are growing faster than the structure of the company has kept up with.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you seem like you're managing the company as it was 5 or 10 years ago. I'd recommend managing the company as it is today - which may require talking to some folks to see what we are all up to.

    Pros

    nice people, nice neighborhood. Good health coverage.

    Cons

    THE CHRO has messed up the entire management process all she cares about is getting ahead at the cost of her staff's sanity and well being.
    They also grossly underpay staff. Few perks. Few holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management is clueless! The CHRO is a mental case who they have allowed to run the show and they are allowing her to continue to ruin things although there have been numerous complaints even from Senior Staff. There has to be some reason she is even still there but they should let her go sooner rather than later. She has little respect for her own staff and condescends to anyone she sees as a threat. LET HER GO! She is dangerous.
