Resource Efficiency Manager (REM) (Former Employee) – Detroit Arsenal Warren MI – November 7, 2016
While working directly with the DPW, I interacted with the director, the arsenal general manager and all administrative and maintenance personnel. It was a challenging but exciting opportunity to identify various conservation measures to lower operating cost on the post for the U.S. Army.
Field tech (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 6, 2016
Worst company I have ever worked for. I have worked hard jobs and not complained about it and I have done a lot of tough hours but nothing compares to this company and the way the lie cheat and steal hours and work from you. They tell you one thing and do another. Promise you great things and never come through. Steal workers from other companies while they still work for other companies and tell you that there is no work when they give the select few they like 100's of hours a week. I wouldn't take this job if your life depended on it. I was behind on bills due to lack of work and took this job and they enjoyed seeing me struggle. They work very unethical and only look out for themselves.

Civil engineer (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – September 4, 2016
Good place with cafetria and free gym. Global projects are good opportunity to learn from. However, project managers and senior engineers are not organized, they need to communicate more effectively and have junior engineers know their responsibilties. I don't recommend working here if you have a better job opportunity.
Global projects experience, good buildings
Poor management, no effective communication, project managers don't have clear plan when it comes to work with juniors
Excellent atmosphere but with lower than average pay
Environmental Scientist II (Current Employee) – Maryland – November 21, 2016
Tetra Tech is a wonderful place to work and it provides numerous opportunities to develop a wide skillset. The work and the atmosphere are both great, the only complaint is that pay, relative to other environmental companies, is low. It also seems like the payscale isn't consistent with experience, education, etc.
Design Drafter (structural) (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – August 23, 2016
Engineers need to communicate with each other more to have the same out come to be able to present to client or drafter. some of the dead line were ball park and were never set or communicated to designers so it was a hurry up and get it done most of the time.
Great work atmosphere. Poor job security, which is typical for consulting. Poor benefits. Flexible working schedule.
Electrical Engineer I (Former Employee) – Monroeville, PA – July 30, 2016
Employers have flex time, and they have to have their 40 hours in by the end of the week. The benefits are poor same with vacation/sick time. You get 23 days a year and 7 of them are paid holidays - New Years, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Christmas. The job security is poor, and that comes with the job considering you have to win jobs to keep your team busy. The people working there are great and friendly, which is the upside of working there. Most of the work is done behind the desk and on the computer. Great help and assistance if you need it. Sometimes there is poor communication and certain individuals aren't available when you need them and they didn't let you know that they weren't going to be there.
People, flex time, great help
poor communication, job security, healthcare, vacation/sick time
