Opening in 1992 as CEC’s first branch office, CEC Cincinnati boasts a long history of putting its employees first. There’s no difference for an employee that has been there a few days, a few months, or several years; the culture and the opportunity for collaboration are the same for all.
Tyler Amicon, Project Manager I in our Civil Engineering practice, and Eric Gerard, Staff Consultant in our Water Resources practice, have both worked full-time with the office since April. Tyler describes the culture as “work hard, play hard” with a “focus on fostering young talent.” He says, “Our office is extremely busy so everyone is working diligently to keep clients happy, but we do find time to take a break and play some games. I have definitely noticed the drive in the office to try and expand the knowledge of our younger team members to ensure they can excel in their careers.”
The Cincinnati social committee kicked off a T-shirt design contest earlier this year. Team members were encouraged to submit a design with a theme centered around the office’s 30th anniversary. Eric decided to submit a design for the contest. For his design, he combined Cincinnati’s skyline with CEC’s 30th-anniversary graphic. He knew he wanted something that made him and his coworkers stand out in the field, so he combined his design with a high visibility safety orange and black lettering to mimic the colors of the Cincinnati Bengals. Even though Eric describes his design as “overly simple,” he was happily surprised when his design won a majority of the votes in the office and won the contest.
