My relationship with JMT began while supporting the company as a team member on a major transportation proposal. During that time, I got to know quite a few JMT employees and observe the company's management style and structure. I soon felt like I belonged there. Despite being a large firm, JMT seemed to have a family atmosphere, and I could sense that in the interactions of its employees, from leadership on down. It is very collaborative, and people genuinely seem to enjoy working with each other.
I was especially impressed with JMT's One Firm Concept, which encourages teamwork across all disciplines and offices. The approach is simple - do what is in the best interests of the company as a whole, and everyone succeeds. When I was eventually offered a chance to join JMT as Manager of the Environmental & Cultural Resources department, I did not hesitate. In my years at JMT, I have found that all of my initial impressions of the company have held true, and that the decision was the right one for me. I've noticed that quite a number of staff have been here for 10, 20, and even 30-plus years, and that is very rare these days. I think it's a true testament to the wonderful culture that JMT offers.
