2019 BEST WORKPLACES IN O H I O
ADVANCED ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS According to Ali Caulkins, marketing coordinator for Advanced Engineering Consultants, the Columbus-based consulting engineering firm was named a best Workplace in Ohio this year because of its open-door policy with all employees. “It helps build trusting and strong relationships. We have engineers that are new grads just out of school and engineers that have been in the industry close to 50 years. And just being able to have open conversations and ask questions and to share experiences really helps … keep everyone thinking and engaged with each other,” she says. This means employees can reach out to managers to discuss both professional and personal problems, talk about career aspirations or pitch new ideas. Even the company’s president, Lisa Huang, is regularly available for a conversation.
This open and flexible attitude is reflected in other aspects of Advanced Engineering Consultants as well. Employees have flexible hours—“Some people get here at 5:30 in the morning, some people stay here until 8:30 at night,” says Caulkins—and the company hosts regular potlucks and team-building events. In addition, employees are encouraged to participate in community events and organizations. For example, this year the company had a team participate in the Dragon Boat Race at the Columbus Asian Festival to support the Asian-American Commerce Group, an organization with which Huang participates. “We work very hard at our projects to please our clients but we also try to have fun,” adds Caulkins. —Corinne Minard
