Why Cotter?

70% of Cotter’s engineers and project managers have professional licenses and/or certifications.  But successful project leadership requires more than just technical expertise.  Employees’ individual development plans are supported through both technical and soft skills training, tuition reimbursement, and the Cotter Academy, an 18-month development program for individuals interested in future leadership opportunities.

Everyone has a story to tell.  Through regular roundtable sessions, employees share experiences and knowledge.  The result is The Cotter Way, our shared standards of practice that support and guide us in delivering projects to achieve client objectives.

We support our employees in both work and life.  We provide comprehensive benefits that provide for the personal well-being and financial security of our employees and their families, including a choice of Blue Cross Blue Shield health plans, a 3% 401(k) company contribution that vests immediately, and discretionary profit sharing.  And if you like to be a part of a team, we hope you’ll join ours in the J.P.Morgan Corporate Challenge, a 3.5 mile run/walk held in Chicago each spring.
