Additional Culture Details

Since 1898, people have associated words such as engineering, architecture, construction and consulting with our company. And while these words may describe some of the things we do, they don’t scratch the surface of what Burns & McDonnell is really all about. You see, this isn’t about building a new smart substation. This is about creating a sustainable solution that can serve as a model for the world. Employee ownership is the engine of our growth, moving us to embrace uncharted opportunities and foster lifelong relationships. Our hard work leads to client success, which leads to our company’s success. It’s a beneficial cycle that circles back around directly to each employee-owner financially now and in the future. Our turnover rate is one of the lowest in the industry at 5%, and that’s because we work hard to give our people opportunities to advance their careers within the company. But while ownership stands at the epicenter of all we do, there are other pillars of our culture we strive to embody every day: our commitment to safety, client service, improving the quality of life, an entrepreneurial spirit, unity, investing for a better world and making this a remarkable place to build a career. Armed with the power of employee ownership and connected to each other through these ingredients of our culture, we solve the most complex and challenging problems our clients face.... Read more
