Working at P&D

Together We Rise

Patterson & Dewar Engineers, Inc. (P&D) is 100% employee-owned, and as such, we believe our people are our most important asset. We offer competitive compensation, a comprehensive benefits package, and the opportunity to learn, grow and contribute to a vibrant culture that stands the test of time.

At P&D, we foster a collaborative culture where managers and staff routinely work side-by-side in the office and in the field. This model allows us to share knowledge and experience blended with new ideas and fresh perspectives to strengthen the team and enrich the customer experience. We support continuous professional and personal development with training and mentoring and encourage employees to find opportunities to apply and extend their talents.

“Each day is a new experience. You, as the individual, have the opportunity to direct your own success. Each person has the opportunity to share ideas on the growth of the company, and to improve work processes and practices. It’s like owning your own business without a lot of the headaches that come from owing your own business.”

What Makes Us Unique?

Established in 1947, the firm has a distinctive legacy of excellence, integrity, and exceptional customer service. While we are rooted in this tradition, we remain intentional in our efforts to maintain a fresh perspective and promote a sustainable business model by investing in our people.

We are a niche firm, specializing in electrical and civil engineering, construction management, and associated support services to electrical utilities, transportation authorities, developers, and corporations throughout the United States. Our subsidiary, Hood Patterson & Dewar, offers electrical and mechanical testing and commissioning services to data centers and mission critical facilities across the country and around the world. We strive to be the best at what we do in order to provide superior service to our customers, frequently resulting in referrals and repeat business.

“It is exciting, challenging and satisfying to be involved with various high-profile customers, state-of-the-art technologies and fast-growing new industries. The scope of activities, the amount of learning and the constant training continually advance my knowledge and confidence in the field of engineering.”

“P&D provides a laid back atmosphere filled with professionals. Each person is committed to making the team succeed while not taking each other too seriously.”

We look for team players who are eager to learn, grow and excel. You should be accountable, self-directed, professional, and open to the possibilities that exist for you at P&D.
