It all started when Tighe & Bond hired me as an intern. Despite being a temporary employee, everyone at the company was extremely welcoming and very patient with my limited experience and knowledge. Seeing that Tighe & Bond is a place where the quest for knowledge and career growth is highly encouraged, I decided to return as a full-time employee. The culture is such that no question is a stupid one, and the willingness to collaborate and help one another get the job done is exceptional.
Tighe & Bond is a great company to work for, and it puts money in the bank!

Senior Project Manager
As a Professional Traffic Operations Engineer (PTOE) and an Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) I have focused my entire career on developing efficient transportation solutions for the built environment. An opportunity to continue to grow in a firm that has a strategic focus on strengthening its transportation practice and expanding its geographic presence is what attracted me to Tighe & Bond.
I like Tighe & Bond’s culture of collaboration, and multi-faced staff skills that can be brought to bear on challenging projects. In addition, I have noticed that there are no ‘silos’ – everyone on a project pitches in to solve a problem and staff does not hesitate to take ownership of issues and resolve them to the clients’ satisfaction. These are just some of the things that make Tighe & Bond
a great place to work.

What I enjoy most about working at Tighe & Bond is the opportunity to collaborate with others who are just as excited about their fields as I am. There is a company culture that encourages staff to reach out to each other and learn about different design and construction experiences. It enables us to build upon each other’s knowledge base, and it means rather than serving our client with the capabilities of one or two engineers, we bring the experience of hundreds.

For me, one of the biggest draws to Tighe & Bond was the opportunity to work for a firm that is stable, has a good reputation, and is growing. More specifically, I was excited about the opportunity to be a part of the expansion of the Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing (MEP) group, and gaining exposure to new markets while still having the safety net of an established firm. It is evident that Tighe & Bond takes great pride in the work that we do, and in providing the service and value that our clients need, to build long lasting relationships. My experience at Tighe & Bond has shown me that young professionals in the firm are valued and receive support to pursue their career goals. I am looking forward to continuing to build my career here at Tighe & Bond.

Senior Environmental Scientist
I chose Tighe & Bond because of their commitment to career development and the continual opportunities for professional growth that would be possible for me. I am constantly presented with ways to learn and grow, am faced with new challenges, and have found a strong support network in my colleagues. From day one, I’ve always been made to feel like an important part of the team. I wanted to belong to a company that truly values its people, and one that invests in development opportunities to expand the technical and professional knowledge base of its staff.

I initially chose to work at Tighe & Bond because they were a multi-discipline, mid-sized civil engineering firm in New England. Starting out in my career, I wanted the opportunity to work on a variety of interesting projects that only larger firms could handle, with a small-firm, family work environment. I have had the opportunity to work on fun projects in a number of civil engineering disciplines and always felt important to the team.
The same things that initially attracted me to Tighe & Bond are what keep me here. Years later, I am still engaged in my work and excited to be a part of a dynamic team working on interesting projects. One aspect of working for Tighe & Bond I have really grown to appreciate is the firm’s employee ownership. Its satisfying to know that your hard work directly benefits you and the clients you serve, and not an anonymous stock holder.

What I like best about working at Tighe & Bond is the opportunity to work with clients on projects that make our infrastructure assets better for future generations. The wide variety of projects keeps me professionally challenged, and I continue to be inspired by colleagues who are talented and passionate about what they do. Probably my greatest mission is to coordinate our Leadership Institute, wherein we coach our rising stars to help them achieve greater success within our team and the industry as a whole.
