The respected Zweig Group has named AE2S among the Top 10 firms to work for in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry in the nation. The 100% employee-owned civil and environmental engineering consulting firm ranks seventh in the Civil Engineering and 200+ Employees categories this year. This tops the firm’s impressive 2023 rankings of ninth in the 200+ Employees category and 11th in the Civil Engineering category.

“Making it into the Top 10 is a major accomplishment. The recognition is incredibly rewarding, and all our Employee-Owners should be proud of doing their part to create a best place to work. It is a testament to our focus on maintaining a great culture,” says Grant Meyer, AE2S CEO.

The Zweig Group is the leading research, publishing, and advisory services resource for firms in the AEC industry. The annual competition involves the largest employee experience survey in the AEC industry. Workplace culture, practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates, professional development, and more are measured from the perspectives of management and staff.

Some of the things that set AE2S apart include the 100% Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), a generous benefits package which includes employer-paid health insurance premiums, continuing education options, and the opportunity for Employee-Owners to work on challenging projects that benefit the communities where they live and work.

In September, the winners of the 2024 Best Firms to Work For competition will be honored at the ElevateAEC Conference and Awards Gala in Tampa Bay, Florida. Check out the full list of winners: 2024 Best Firms To Work For Winners – Zweig Group.
