At AMB Architects, our team has always considered our firm among the best places to work in Houston. We are excited to announce that the Houston Business Journal agrees with us! HBJ ranked AMB Architects seventh in their list of 55 small businesses honored in the Best Places to Work of 2020 ranking.
Throughout this award processes, organizers compared AMB architects to Houston-area businesses of similar size and took into consideration a variety of factors such family time, leadership, advancement opportunities, recognition and compensation, and the company’s climate for embracing innovation and ideas.
All Best Places to Work winners were determined exclusively based on their employees’ responses to the Best Places to Work Survey. Employee responses from the 30 standard survey questions, along with the number of employees that respond to the survey, are calculated to determine the company’s overall score and ranking. Here are two examples of what AMB employees had to say.
“AMB supports and encourages each employee to grow in all areas of life. Focusing on the whole person is what I believe makes us a successful team at AMB. We can thrive through all circumstances because we know and are able to offer our best selves,” according to Architectural Project Manager, Lauren Houser.
“AMB is accepting, nurturing, and determined to support us in having a more enjoyable life. Our needs and wants are listened to and valued, which is encouraging to me when it comes to achieving my professional and personal goals,” said Architectural Associate, Jeylen Arteaga.
AMB founder Alyse Makarewicz purposefully created a work environment that would break the myth of success requiring all-nighters and burning the candle at both ends. Her vision that our work directly impacts the productivity, success, and happiness of clients is magnified when it comes to AMB employees. When we work hard and play hard, that is when we as an organization are at our best, for each other and our clients.
For the past six years, AMB Architects has been ranked among the city’s top employers; this year’s designation is the seventh time we’ve been recognized among the top 10 Best Places to Work.
We attribute this incredible honor to our dedicated team members. Not only do they put their expertise to work each day for clients, but they make AMB a fun-filled, encouraging environment. Of course, it wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful clients, who help fuel our company’s success.
While awards are always fun to receive, we take immense pride that the recognition reflects the work we do with our clients, as well as feedback from our team.
