SCJ Alliance has earned top honors as one of the best firms to work for in the nation. The Zweig Group ranked SCJ as 12th nationally in the Multidiscipline category and 22nd in Civil Engineering.
The Zweig Group produces the rankings for outstanding architecture, engineering, environmental and multidiscipline firms in the US and Canada. The prestigious list is based on workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, and much more, as evaluated in an anonymous survey of firm employees.
SCJ Alliance is a consulting firm specializing in transportation planning and design, civil engineering, landscape architecture and land use/environmental planning. Headquartered in Lacey, WA, SCJ has seen impressive growth since its three-person founding in 2006; it now also has offices in Seattle, Vancouver and Wenatchee, WA, as well as Denver, CO.
“This award is reflective of the incredible team members we have. It’s also an affirmation that we’ve been able to maintain a supportive, collegial atmosphere even with our rapid growth and expansion to multiple locations,” shares Jean Carr, SCJ’s senior vice president and co-founder. Over the last nine years SCJ has enjoyed steady growth and now is a dynamic group of over 60 team members.
The phrase ‘Team Oriented/Collaborative’ was the option most frequently selected by survey participants when asked to identify the firm’s culture. Other top vote getters were ‘Supportive of Professional Goals,’ ‘Focused on Integrity’ and ‘Client Focused.’ “Each of us has an interest in the professional growth and personal well-being of our colleagues. We live by our core values of integrity, stewardship, compassion, freedom and trust,” added Jean.
Creative, real-world solutions emerge from SCJ’s collaborative approach, something enjoyed both by employees and clients. “Our employees take pride in the positive impacts they’re having on the communities we serve,” Jean said. “There’s great satisfaction in helping bring a client’s vision to life.”
