Burns & McDonnell

Architecture - Engineering - Construction


Burns & McDonnell is a 100 percent employee-owned company made up of more than 5,700 engineers, architects, construction professionals, scientists, consultants and entrepreneurs with offices across the country and throughout the world. Less than 4 percent of firms nationwide are 100 percent employee-owned, and even fewer have enjoyed that status for more than 30 years. Our clients tell us that our employee ownership translates into enhanced effort and extraordinary work. We strive to create amazing success for our clients and amazing careers for our employee-owners. Burns & McDonnell has served the St. Louis metropolitan area’s needs since 1989, delivering a wide range of projects from aviation to roads and bridges to cybersecurity, water and wastewater to labs and clean rooms, power generation, defense facilities and air quality improvements. We’re listed in the top 10 percent of U.S. engineering firms and are proud to be part of the rich engineering history in the region. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has named Burns & McDonnell as a Top Workplace in St. Louis since 2013.


Burns & McDonnell offers employee-owners a comprehensive compensation package consisting of a competitive salary, performance-based year-end incentives, insurance programs, paid time off, 401(k) matching and free participation in our employee stock ownership plan. The plan is a tax-qualified employee benefit plan that turns employees into shareholders. This means our employee-owners are rewarded for their performance and share in the success of the company. They can participate directly in the firm’s profitability beginning their first day of employment at no cost. ESOP participation is free and automatic, but it’s more than just an added perk or benefit. Employee ownership is at the core of who we are and drives how we care for our employee-owners, communities and clients.
