What Our Employees Are Saying
"You can go as far as you want to at PEC. There is no limit to what you are allowed to do."
“The design projects we do are very exciting and memorable because you have something you can look at in the end and say, ‘I did that.’ That’s probably one of the neatest things about working at PEC.”
“PEC offers many opportunities for growth, which is why I’m in Fort Collins, helping to grow this location. At large engineering firms, you become a number rather than a person. At PEC, they treat you as a person and give you opportunities to grow and expand your career.”
“I can go in my manager’s office anytime, and the president is right down the hall. In fact, he’s in our Fantasy Football League… Because PEC is a professional association, there is an opportunity for employees to eventually be inducted into the association and become owners.”
“We have great engineers, people who have enthusiasm and a personality to engage with. Because we’re self-owned, you feel that ownership and the desire to be successful."
“There are no cookie-cutter paths for employees at PEC. Your path is tailored to who you are and what you want to do. I’ve been able to grow in my career because PEC has invested in me and my future.”
