A place where you are encouraged to be innovative and expand your skills
There are assignments that come in either by direct contact emails that require completion within a time as the particular assignment required. This may be something routine ( not necessarily easy) but something that can be done within the time needed. Other days there are job challenges that require thinking outside the box the accommodate the requirements of the particular job, time constraints, and or usual skills sets. The workplace culture is more relaxed because each individual is highly skilled and trusted to get the job done. Once the abilities are proven there is a trust and expectation level to get the job done in timely accurate and professional manner.

Lean hierarchy
There is already a set hierarchy and very less opportunity to graduate to a new higher position. people working there tend to stay there for longer for the aggerated salary and benfits

Clearly not a long-term solution
It's a good place for someone fresh out of college, or someone looking to cash in on years of experience as an SME. But it becomes stagnant for anyone in the middle, especially if you are looking to grow. You are hired to do 1 thing, there is limited promotion potential, and no reinvestment in the workforce. Also the time off is terrible. Federal holidays count against your PTO. Pay seems low given the cost of living in the region. The initial experience was valuable, but staying long isn't an option for someone looking to progress, though I can't speak much for the experience at a management level. Better off working for a sub rather than the prime
Pros
Decent exposure and manageable workload
Cons
Poor PTO, Limited growth opportunity

A good company to work for.
Tetra Tech is generally a good company to work for, but most of their job openings are contract based, which means once the contract comes to an end, employees on that contract are given two weeks after which their jobs are terminated.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
No sick leave and few vacation days to start with.

Great company to start your career
Great to learn from scratch and company will overload you with work. You will find that you will either sink or swim. It is a difficult company to advance in and does not offer competitive salary compared to other similar organizations. There is no issues with being light on work to do. If management realizes you have great multitasking skills and are smart, you will be tasked to a point where working is all your life and this is not a great environment if your looking for a work/ life balance.


Great company otherwise....
Pros
Good place to start carreer/ foundation
Cons
Compensation Package is way off/low for what other organizations pay for less duties

Not much connection to the company. More connection to the federal agency. I would advise anyone interested to keep in touch with the company. Make trips to the main office to meet with executives

Not much to say
Previous company was acquired by Tetra Tech. Left for another opportunity after about a year, in which we basically operated as we did before TT so not totally sure of operations after full transition.
