The W+A Culture

An Employee-Owned Company

Wells + Associates is an employee-owned company. Employees are eligible to participate in our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), in which they are incentivized to improve the company’s performance and stimulate future growth. The ESOP creates a strong company culture amongst employee owners and encourages everyone to do what’s best for the company. Wells + Associates is a proud member of the National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO).

Here are a few top features of the W+A culture.


Our team members take ownership of projects. They are given the freedom to explore problems in new ways, and they have a voice. That is one more way that we are setting the pace.

+Excellent Benefits

Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) makes you part of something bigger and gives you a piece of the action. We continually strive to offer competitive compensation and incredible benefits.


All the easy transportation problems have been solved. That is why we encourage innovative thinking. We actively value diversity because it is critical to this creative approach.


Our dedicated teams are fully connected with each project. Our clients have total confidence in us. They trust us to give them the right answers, not simply to tell them what they want to hear.


We work on some of the best, most challenging projects in communities all over the United States and beyond. You will gain experiences here you will not get anyplace else.

+Ongoing Development

Your career will keep moving forward with professional development opportunities, including training and business development opportunities.


W+A is an energetic, pro-team atmosphere. You will be valued for your strengths as an individual, while working in a collaborative, empowering atmosphere. And you will make a difference. We work hard and we play hard, with team building days, monthly happy hours, our “Amazing Race,” and cookouts, as well as community and service events.
