WORKING AT COTTEE PARKER ARCHITECTS
We think the best times in your working career are the times when you feel you can make a difference and be part of collaborating to build something special. That’s what we feel and what we are always trying to deliver as a culture for the team. That’s what excites us at Cottee Parker Architects. Having the ability to make a real difference comes with a high level of responsibility, that’s why we spend a lot of time in interviews making sure we are just as good a fit for you, as you are for us!
We asked our top performers why they stayed and strived to be successful, this is what they’ve told us. They say they love working for a company that is big enough to attract lots of talented people but small enough for one person to make a difference. They feel they are not just a number or a dot on an org chart. They love the fact that they can easily talk to Directors. There is an open door policy, indeed we have almost no offices or doors.
We are big on rewards & recognition. We’re all for rewarding great work, and we do lots of big and smaller things to appreciate people. Here are some of the favourites: free weekly Pilates and fitness Boot Camp classes; birthday morning teas and quarterly off-site social events. We recognise people who’ve been with us for 5, 10, 15, 20 years (and even more!) in company meetings because we appreciate their significant contribution.
