15 Reasons Why VP Engineering Employees are the Best

July 3, 2018
A group of business people putting their hands together.

Earlier this year, VP Engineering reached a major milestone as a company — the 15th anniversary since first opening our doors as an MEP consulting firm in Charlotte!  We’ve accomplished (and learned!) a lot since that time, and thought it was only appropriate to create a campaign around the number “15” to celebrate. Since our employees are the reason we’ve been in business so long, we thought it was only appropriate to start with this blog highlighting all the reasons why they’re the best employees around. We hope you enjoy!

  1. Their Sense of Humor: At any given time, laughter is ringing throughout the office. It’s a clear indication of how much we love what we do and who we do it with!
  2. Dedication to Their Craft: Design is always at the forefront of our designers’ minds.  There’s no better example of this than how something as simple as a beer after work can lead to an in-depth discussion on the MEP design of that brewery or restaurant.
  3. Loyalty to the Company: We recognize that our employees are our greatest asset and our employees reciprocate this mentality by investing years of their lives into our firm.
  4. Willing to Share Opinions and Ideas: Our employees are smart (and we’re smart to hire them!).  They openly share their thoughts and opinions to provide our clients with the best possible experience and results.
  5. Their Diversity: We’re a melting pot.  Our employees hail from many different cultures, all of which add to the richness of our own company culture!
  6. Putting up with Those Pesky Bosses: Our three principals are as different as night and day. Navigating those distinct personalities can be challenging, but no less entertaining.  Besides, our employees are engineers.  Overcoming challenges is in their wheelhouse!
  7. Friendships In and Outside the Office: Our employees are just fun, plain and simple.  There’s no better indicator of this than how frequently our employees choose to spend time together outside of their regular 40+ hour work week.
  8. Always Looking to Improve: MEP design is a moving target.  Our employees appreciate this and actively research opportunities to build upon their already impressive skillsets.
  9. Open to Constructive Criticism: This builds upon #8.  Our employees understand there’s always room for improvement and graciously accept critiques and suggestions for that reason.
  10. Treat One Another Like Family: When you spend as much time together as we do, it isn’t surprising that our employees have become like family. They laugh; they argue, but they always support one another—just like family!
  11. Great Conversationalists: Our employees are both witty and sarcastic, making for some pretty humorous conversations throughout the day.
  12. Their Friendly Faces: This is at the heart of it all.  Our employees are genuinely gracious and approachable people.  They extend those characteristics to whomever they’re interacting with from their co-worker in the next cubicle to a client during a site visit.
  13. Their Fashion Style: Several of our employees are style mavens; some so much they look as if they walked off the cover of a fashion magazine.  Way to make us look good!
  14. Passion for Sports: As dedicated as they are to our clients; our employees are as equally dedicated to their sports. You will often find them gathered in a conference room during lunch watching the Olympics, ACC Tournament or most recently, the World Cup.
  15. Never Needing IT Support: Oddly enough, our employees’ computers almost “never” require IT assistance, especially for anything that could be a user-error.
