Hennebery Eddy Architects is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer.
Compensation starts with pay and is so much more. We go beyond the basics, offering comprehensive benefits that reflect our shared values and collaborative philosophy, and support our employees, their interests, and their futures.
From professional dues and continuing education to LEED accreditation fees and professional licensure, we support lifelong learning and development through annual allowances and reimbursement. From its early years, Hennebery Eddy has supported the development and path to licensure for aspiring architects, and professionals who become licensed or accredited while employed at Hennebery Eddy qualify to receive reimbursement for the exam fees, plus an additional PTO award.
Supported Community Involvement
We believe in giving back to our community. Each year, we provide one or more paid opportunities for volunteer service, including an annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service, and a community service scholarship awarded annually to a member of our staff. The Hennebery Eddy Gives program includes an employer match for qualifying charitable donations.
Our health care plans include medical, dental, and vision options, so employees can choose what works best for them, including FSA and HSA options.
Paid Time Off
Flexibility is key when it comes to time off. PTO can be used for vacation, sick days, appointments – it’s up to our employees and their individual needs.
We don’t match, we contribute – no matter what. Employees are eligible for our monthly Safe Harbor contribution, equivalent to 3% of salary, starting immediately upon employment. In addition, each employee can make voluntary contributions to conventional or Roth 401(k) retirement savings plans. Employees may also receive an additional 2% profit-sharing bonus.
Just as our design process is collaborative, so is our success. Provided we meet our annual targets, employees are eligible for profit-sharing bonuses, via both a year-end cash bonus and through additional 401(k) contributions.
Our commitment to the environment means alternative transportation is a priority. In addition to a private, secure bike storage room with changing, shower, and repair facilities, we offset the cost of public transit passes through monthly stipends and pre-tax dollars.
These are just a few of our comprehensive benefits – other perks include quarterly staff luncheons, summer family events and winter holiday celebrations, our Arts + Craft(beer) pin-ups, group outings, a City of Portland Sustainability at Work gold-certified workplace, and more.
“We seem to really have pride and integrity about what we do — that we’re doing the right thing not just for a specific client, but that we’re doing the right thing for the place, the users, for the building.”
— Associate Carin Carlson, AIA
Hennebery Eddy offers paid internships to architecture and interior design students in their final year of undergraduate studies or their second or third year of graduate studies. Most internships occur during the summer, though we do employ student interns during other times of year, depending on workload and availability.
We identify student intern candidates in a variety of ways. In 2018-2019, the firm is a participant in the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture/AIA COTE Top Ten for Students Competition: Innovation 2030, which recognizes design proposals that best combine design excellence and environmental performance, in alignment with our firm’s core values. Our participation includes offering one student winner a summer architectural internship. Another recent intern joined us via the Energy Trust of Oregon’s Net Zero Emerging Leaders program; others have simply submitted cover letters, resumes, and portfolios outside of a formal program as part of their internship or employment search.
Having a balanced exposure to the entirety of the profession is key to becoming a complete architect. Our internship program is designed to give our student interns firsthand experience in a broad range of areas associated with working in an architectural firm, structured around five focus areas: project work, construction administration, marketing and awards, operations, and research. In addition to supporting project teams, student interns complete a research project and present their findings to the firm.
