Endless Opportunities

We don't simply hire employees, we invest in them.

The most beneficial part of my internship experience was...

“The entire experience. My time at Thornton Tomasetti was one of my most rewarding college experiences. My colleagues were eager to share knowledge and I found their passion and positive attitude to be inspiring. I walked away from this internship with hands-on experience, life skills, a broadened understanding of the industry, and inspiration to create my own success.” – Yocheved Friedman, Engineer Intern

“Learning many things from my colleagues and also enjoying outside of work things with them and the other interns. Good balance.” – Cecilia Placidi, Façades Intern

Based on your past coursework – what material did you find useful in the day to day of structural engineering, and what could be left out?

“I definitely found what I learned in my concrete class to be useful. I don’t think anything learned in my undergraduate was superfluous. Everything was applicable in some way this summer.” – Niyam Shah, Forensics Intern

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Equity, diversity and inclusion are more than the things we do; they are fundamental to who we are as a firm. We are committed to an inclusive mindset that embraces our employees’ full potential and creates opportunities for growth.

President Wayne Stocks and Senior Principal Peggy Van Eepoel restructured our ED&I committee in late 2019 to focus on grassroots employee network groups (ENGs) composed of employees who are linked by social factors such as gender, culture, sexual orientation or a common interest or goal within our firm. They are bottom-up, formed and led by employees who recognize the needs of an underrepresented group. Their leaders are empowered to develop strategic plans and programs that are consistent with the firm’s purpose and values, and that cultivate a welcoming and rewarding environment for all our employees. 

The ED&I committee consists of two executive advocates, an ED&I coordinator and the leaders of our current ENGs:

  • Women@TT, our women’s employee network group, strives to achieve gender equality at Thornton Tomasetti by promoting awareness, providing support and driving culture.

  • Mosaic, our multicultural employee network group, raises the visibility of underrepresented groups within the AEC industry, aids recruitment and retention of staff of all backgrounds, promotes cultural awareness, fosters and broadens professional networks, and provides opportunities for advancement.

  • Spectrum, our LGBTQIA+ employee network group, promotes an inclusive workplace community and advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) employees.
