Collaboration and Integrity at Work

From the firm's start, our leaders valued relationship building and working together—values we’re still living in our work today. We are a group of energetic, innovative thinkers working together across disciplines and geographies, looking to the future and challenging the expected in order to do the right thing for our clients.

Passion and Dedication at Play

Our excitement about what we do drives us to give it our all every day. It challenges us to think differently, fuels intense collaboration with our clients and each other, and makes our work and our team special. And our passion doesn’t end with the close of the workday—many of us are also deeply involved with our local communities, industries and charities, giving back as committed volunteers in the very communities we serve.

People Always at the Center

We strive for a supportive work environment for our diverse workforce—a place where everyone feels engaged, energized and supported as individuals. Work-life balance impacts personal happiness, job satisfaction and productivity,  so we try to recognize alternative needs by offering a variety of schedules, technology for remote work needs and other flexible work options for team members.

Fun Underlying it All

Our team members are serious about their fun! Across our offices, we host onsite events for all including catered lunches, ice cream socials, seasonal parties and even opportunities for chair massage. Outside the office, we gather for intramural sports and other extracurricular activities, as well as family-friendly company picnics, movie nights and holiday parties—all of which we’re proud to say are well-attended by leadership, management and staff.

What Our Team Members Say

My proudest accomplishment is my trip to Ecuador with AWWA Michigan, which OHM Advisors helped support. I got to advance communities at the most basic level. It's nice to work for a company that supports voluntary work that aligns with our mission.

Jessica Howard
Project Engineer

OHM Advisors focuses equally on making both clients and employees happy. It’s a place where I get to be a part of a team where everyone is responsible for their individual portion, and surveying is a critical element within the broader project. Everyone comes together to give the client the best possible outcome.

Jeff Fouch
Surveyor

Our culture of teamwork and collaboration drives innovation. The integration of services across the company allows our clients access to the full range of our expertise and experience. That, in my mind, is the coolest thing about working here.

Robert Pelosi
Project Manager

Our industry-leading professionals are fiercely passionate, but not too serious. It’s inspiring to collaboratively explore creative solutions alongside big-picture thinkers driven by the greater vision of what our work can do.
