December 09, 2011

HMC Architects was founded as a small studio in Ontario, Calif., in 1940. Since then, it has grown into a major player in healthcare, education (K-12 and higher ed), government, and corporate architecture. The studio tradition continues to this day, with its 440 employees sharing work across 12 offices in California, Nevada, and Arizona.

The firm's workplace is designed to promote collaboration and communication. Offices are designed sustainably to attract staff that appreciate such an environment. Accrued paid time off, in-house gym facilities, and 401(k) employer matching (50% up to 2% of annual salary) add to the benefits menu.

Employees can benefit from alternative work schedules, allowing them to take every other Friday off. Every year, two lucky employees are selected (by a client jury) to receive a $4,000 travel fellowship and a week's paid time off to enrich their professional perspectives.
