BIG RED DOG is proud to announce that we landed on Zweig Group’s 2017 list of Best Firms to Work For. The Best Firms to Work For award recognizes the top architecture, structural engineering, civil engineering, environmental, geotechincal engineering, landscape architecture/planning, and multidiscipline firms in the US and Canada based on their workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, and much more.

BIG RED DOG’s ranking of #44 on the Multi-Discipline list was based on a combination score of comprehensive employee surveys and corporate evaluations.  Over 11,000 employees from participating firms responded to the employee survey. Participating in the award process is an effective and efficient way to gain employee insight. All participating firms receive a summary report of their employees’ survey responses and a report containing valuable benchmarking data from all firms in a given category.

The winners will be celebrated at the Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards Conference held at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, Washington on September 21-22, 2017.

“We had some really great applicants this year.  We were very impressed with the firms who made this list and saw an overall improvement in scores compared with last year,” said Christina Zweig, marketing director, Zweig Group.
