Your Benefits

We are proud to provide employees with a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical-benefits coverage, life and accident insurance, matching 401(k), spending accounts, tuition reimbursement and wellness programs so employees can excel every day.

We understand that each employee has responsibilities and unique circumstances outside of the office. That’s why we allow our employees the flexibility to determine the work-life balance that best suits their individual needs. The quality of our work is dependent on the job satisfaction of our team.

Our Culture: An Impact That Makes a Difference

We are committed to a culture of collaboration and recognize that the success of our company relies on the diverse knowledge and backgrounds of our employees.

Central to our values is the willingness of both the Company and our team members to make a difference in the communities we serve in significant and meaningful ways. Our employees have donated tens of thousands of hours in volunteer time to support communities, including hurricane-relief efforts, cleaning up parks and streams, collecting food and gifts for needy families, and working tirelessly to raise funds for local charities.

Our team from the Hamilton and Newark, N.J., offices participated in the Tour de Shore charity bike ride which supports local children's charities and the families of fallen first responders in the Philadelphia and South Jersey areas. 

Decide Your Next Career Move

“Michael Baker has always been very supportive and afforded me the opportunity to move and take on new challenges and develop my leadership skills during my career. In 2001, I started with the company as a Civil Associate in Princeton, N.J., and gradually took on more responsibilities as a project manager to eventually lead an office. Today, I support the company’s cutting-edge work in connected and autonomous vehicles from our Columbus, Ohio, office.”
