Don't Take Our Word For ItSee what our people have to say
One of the things Primera really allows us to do is to grow in our disciplines. It allows us to explore in a safe environment, where we make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. It helps us grow into the exceptional employees that we are.
Melissa Clark, Controller | Corporate
I've been working with my key managers for over five years now, and I've learned so much from them. They give me opportunities to have client-facing discussions and be in difficult situations, but they also back me up and help me grow and know how to get through them. I feel like I can reach out to them, but I also have [confidence] that I can deal with a new situation on my own.
Shannon Hackett, Consultant | Consulting
Coming in to Primera provides you with a lot of opportunity to establish yourself in the industry because there is a lot of growth potential.
Matt Villanueva, Civil Engineer III | Transportation
Primera is fun. I love coming to work here every day, and I have for the past 17 years. It's a mix of great people, great projects, and challenging work. I get up in the morning, and I'm excited to come into the office.
Erin Inman, President & CEO
I appreciate all of the opportunities to give back to our community, such as supporting New Life for Haiti and Rebuilding Together. I especially enjoy and value all of the support Primera has given to furthering women in STEM and our participation in the CONSTRUCT program. I am continually inspired by the individuals and organizations that Primera works with.
Colleen Finkl, Project Manager | Buildings
I have been working for engineering firms for 20 years. Primera is the first company that made me feel like part of a family and not just an employee number. That “family feel” really helps us work well as a team.
