Create Connections

We strive to build and maintain our excellent professional reputation by promoting strong relationships with regulatory agency personnel as well as with our sub-consultant partners, which allow us to deliver consistent positive results for our valued clients.

Work Hard, Play Hard

Our employees work hard on behalf of our clients so our management team works just as hard to support our employees in pursuing a healthy work-life balance. We believe people that work hard should be allowed to (and encouraged) to play hard, laugh often and enjoy life.

The company has highly qualified people on the team and mentorship is great. The network for clients is vast, and employees get the opportunity to work on different industries (residential/commercial/industrial).

Thought I'd work here for two years, but its been over 20. This is a great place to work...hard. The company is not too big and not too small. If you're driven and want to succeed in your career and deliver successful projects for your clients, this is a great place to do it. The client's satisfaction is the goal and it's reflected in the company's desire to provide the resources necessary for its employees to succeed.

|Senior Planner / Glassdoor Review

The company and its owners truly show that they value their employees. The end of the year holiday party has been impressive and memorable. From a private show at Teatro Zinzanni to a Seattle dinner cruise, including flying employees and their spouse to the festivities, BCE has been very generous. There are also more regular lunch events for the whole office, BBQ, taco trucks, delicious Thai food, and occasional coffee cart with pastries.

Supportive board members that actually listen to new ideas and implement them when appropriate. Awesome company culture, HR is always coming up with fun ideas to keep the staff connected (even during a pandemic). Great benefits and PTO program. Understanding of work life balance. A company that trusts their staff and constantly promotes within.

When I walk through the halls of Barghausen, I'm almost always stopped by someone who asks how the kids are doing, how my hobbies are going etc. It may sound cliché, but the leadership here has done a great job on creating a tight-knit work family. Leadership is always open to positive change; they aren't stuck in their "old ways" which seems rare these days. In the past year, Barghausen has made significant improvements to the benefits and perks offered to employees. They have shown that they truly care about their employee’s wellbeing.

I think Barghausen is an excellent place to work. The company offers great benefits, like health insurance, 401k, gym membership, the possibility to work from home some days a week, and many other activities organized by the Human Resources Department. The Board of Directors cares about the employees and offers them opportunities to grow as knowledgeable, ethical, and trustworthy professionals. The work environment is very healthy. I feel very proud of all the company's successes, and I am fortunate to work here. At Barghausen, I have the opportunity to do what I love for a living, surrounded by good people.

Barghausen has gone above and beyond to support my professional growth and they wholeheartedly trust me to run with ideas and think creatively. I know I have the support of the leadership and how much they appreciate what I do. Beyond the professional side, people take the time to get to know each other outside of work. There are countless friendships that have been formed at Barghausen and people really enjoy the team bonding activities.
