Alfred Benesch & Company – Why Work With Us?

Founded as a structural/civil engineering firm in 1946, Alfred Benesch & Company began with a handful of exceptionally bright engineers, each with an unwavering passion for their work. Within its first decade, the firm expanded its expertise to include railroad and highway bridge design and construction management. In the 60 years since then, the firm has continued to grow and prosper through ever-expanding service lines and an increasing geographic footprint.

Today, we offer a wide range of engineering and professional services across several markets. We serve public and private clients across the nation and are consistently ranked among the Top 500 Design Firms by Engineering News Record.

Our benefits package covers so much more than just your medical, dental and vision insurance; from work/life balance to financial security and more, there’s a lot to love about working at Benesch:

Benesch has a unique corporate culture, rooted in a deep understanding that we are only as good as the people we have. It may sound cliché, but we truly believe that our employees are the company’s greatest asset. For that reason, we work hard to sustain a culture that engages our employees to reach their fullest potential—both in the office and in their communities.

While separated by geography, we act as one, and are guided by a “company first” mentality. Through proactive knowledge sharing, state-of-the-art communications technology, work sharing and cross-selling our diversified service portfolio, we manage to lessen the miles between us and are always finding new ways to help each other succeed in our local markets. Likewise, major project wins for one division within the company oftentimes benefit staff across multiple regions. We share the workload as a team, collaborating on complex challenges to deliver innovative solutions that we all can be proud of.

Great things happen when people give back to their communities. At Benesch, we offer a variety of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs aimed at encouraging employees to do just that – support causes close to their hearts. Our matching gift, Summer of Service and sustainability-focused programs represent just a few ways CSR is promoted at Benesch.

We have a dedicated focus on creating a corporate culture that keeps our employees fulfilled both personally and professionally. Team events, wellness initiatives, holiday parties and summer outings are just a few examples of the ways we make Benesch a great place to work!

We’re not just providing jobs. At Benesch, we want to build careers. Check out what some of our current employees have to say about being part of the Benesch Team.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Alfred Benesch & Company.


    It went great! I met with employees of the company for an interview, including an informal meeting and a phone call. Between the first interview and my acceptance notice, it was about a month's long period. Everyone I met from the company was kind and welcoming, and the actual interview session went really well.
