Dudek – Why Work For Us?


Our culture is the foundation of who we are and how we work, and is shaped by these shared beliefs:

  • People working in an atmosphere of trust rise to the occasion and perform better than in top-down managed settings.
  • Achievement is measured by cumulative contributions to client work, not by inwardly focused measures like job title or org chart position.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged. Good ideas are funded. Success is rewarded.
  • Ownership means three things: owning your client’s satisfaction, owning your career path, and owning shareholder equity.
  • Last, but hardly least––we take our work seriously, not ourselves!

Collaborate, Succeed, Repeat

People who succeed on our team are collaborative by nature. Dudekians have a passion for working with clients and colleagues to plan, design, permit, construct, and manage projects that improve communities. As a result, our clients enjoy working with us, and don’t hesitate to say so.

    I worked at Dudek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cons

    Little direction from management, high work load that was not balanced between co-workers. Many days with long hours can be expected.
