Benefits

Just in it for the perks (as well as a great career).

What if you could work with (and for) people you actually like? Smith + Andersen is a place for knowledge sharing – peers, leaders, and support staff consistently go out of their way to help each other out. And if that’s what’s happening on our projects, you can imagine what the atmosphere in each of our offices is like…

Or, if you’d rather read than imagine, here are a few reasons why it’s fun to come to work every day when you work for Smith + Andersen:

  • The People. They’re the ones you would actually want to have lunch / coffee / drinks with.
  • The Projects. We’re talking big, exciting buildings, public spaces, and infrastructure that improves the communities in which we live.
  • The Growth. You can grow as much as you want here, and we try to provide additional opportunities for you to learn and connect with your peers (e.g., Revit Summits, Weekly Conclaves, etc.).
  • The Connections. Like many other companies, we have newsletters, town halls, and a constantly evolving intranet, but what makes a difference are the connections you’ll make with professionals at every level (across the country).
  • The Odd Break. It’s a little thing, but when you work as hard as our people do, you look forward to breaks. We have regular social activities (often organized by our employees), including bowling nights, ski days, escape rooms, picnics, weekly breakfasts, and sailing days. But for those who are just looking for a bit of reprieve during the week, we do give employees the option to take Friday afternoons off. Every week. All year long.

In addition to a fantastic workplace, we offer our employees a full benefits package which includes:

  • Health care insurance
  • Dental care insurance
  • Basic life insurance (employee and dependent child)
  • Long Term Disability
  • Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (AD + D)
  • Retirement Savings
  • Vacation
  • Personal Days Off
  • Transit Subsidy Program

Co-Op Program

It takes a community to raise a co-op.

At Smith + Andersen, our co-op program isn’t “just another thing we do” – it’s an integral part of who we are as a company. We’re committed to providing a culture of knowledge sharing – a place where people aren’t afraid to ask questions, but also aren’t afraid to put up their hand when they have the answer.

We know this takes a special kind of person, which is why we’ve made great strides to ensure we regularly seek out and welcome the best and the brightest. Attending career fairs across the country, we conduct on-campus, candid interviews with considered candidates. Additionally, Smith + Andersen has formed strong partnerships with elite post-secondary institutions across the country, a list that starts with the following but is always growing:

  • University of Waterloo
  • University of Guelph
  • University of Toronto
  • University of Victoria
  • University of British Columbia
  • British Columbia Institute of Technology

As a co-op at Smith + Andersen, you will be mentored by leaders in the industry, but you’ll also be expected to challenge yourself. You aren’t seen as a “student” – you’re seen as a junior member of the project team. It’s a big commitment to join our program, but that commitment is definitely reciprocated.

Wondering just what kind of commitment you can expect? Approximately 40% of the Associates and Principals who lead our teams across the country came up through the Smith + Andersen Co-op Program.
