GRAEF Culture

There are as many reasons to work at GRAEF as there are GRAEF employees.

Each member of the GRAEF family has a unique story to tell about what makes GRAEF the right choice for them, their families, and their futures.

I work at GRAEF because...

"Since I've been working at GRAEF, I've had the opportunity to work on a number of very high-profile projects, such as the Calatrava addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum and Lambeau Field. It gives me a great feeling of satisfaction to know that these projects catch the attention of people all over the world."
Dan, Structural Engineer

"The people at GRAEF are great. I work in a relaxed, yet professional atmosphere that allows me to build friendships as well as professional experience. Some of my 'work friends' have become some of my best friends."
Dawn, Financial Services/Payroll Coordinator

"GRAEF has given me the opportunity for a perfect work-life balance. GRAEF expects my best at all times, but they understand that employees have lives outside of the office, too. The quality of people and the philosophy of the firm make it a wonderful place to work."
Eileen, Senior Marketing Specialist, Milwaukee

"GRAEF is simply the best at what they do. In the end, that's what matters most to me. The benefits, the work environment, the people ... all that stuff's great. But it's the quality of the work that gives me the greatest sense of professional pride."
Joe, Architect
