As I reflect on my journey with Falcon Engineering, I can’t help but feel a profound sense of gratitude. As a fresh graduate, with no prior experience in my field, I was nervous to begin a new chapter of my life at Falcon Engineering. However, over the past year and a half, I have felt nothing but privilege and pride to be working in an organization that truly values each and every one of its employees. The friendly company culture, and open-office environment, encourage collaboration among colleagues.
From the moment I joined the team, I could sense the positive energy and the emphasis on building strong relationships. The Principals at Falcon Engineering in Kelowna understand the significance of creating a supportive and inclusive environment. By fostering a culture of trust and respect, they have laid the foundation for a motivated and engaged team.
One of the key aspects of Falcon Engineering’s culture is its open-office environment. This eliminates hierarchical barriers and encourages open communication throughout the organization. From Principals to Jr. Engineers, everyone is accessible and approachable. This accessibility not only allows for a natural flow and exchange of ideas but also facilitates mentorship and growth opportunities for all team members. Knowing that I can approach anyone, regardless of their position, has been invaluable in my professional development. Moreover, at Falcon Engineering, there is no shortage of lively discussions and brainstorming sessions. What sets these conversations apart is the active participation of all team members. Regardless of role or tenure, everyone’s input is valued. This collaborative approach not only brings diverse perspectives to the table but also fosters a sense of ownership and collective responsibility. It is empowering to have the opportunity to contribute to the company’s overall growth.
In an era where micromanagement can limit creativity and productivity, Falcon Engineering takes a refreshing approach. The mechanical, electrical and energy engineering Principals understand the importance of giving employees autonomy and trust to do their best work. Rather than hovering over every detail, they focus on providing guidance, setting clear goals, and supporting individuals to achieve their objectives. This macro-management style not only cultivates a sense of ownership but also allows for innovation and professional growth.
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of working at Falcon Engineering is the comfortable work atmosphere that allows for a stronger team bond. From day one, I was greeted with warmth and kindness, and it didn’t take long for me to feel like part of the Falcon Engineering family. Beyond professional achievements, Falcon Engineering genuinely cares about the well-being of its employees. Whether it’s through team-building activities, lunch and learns, or simply taking the time to inquire about each other’s health and well-being, the team at Falcon Engineering truly demonstrates a commitment to the overall development and well-being of its people.
All in all, joining Falcon Engineering has been a transformative experience for me. From the welcoming company culture and family-like atmosphere to the endless opportunities for growth and development, Falcon has created an environment where everyone feels valued and empowered. Falcon’s emphasis on macro management has fostered a culture of trust, autonomy, and collaboration, allowing all employees to thrive both individually and collectively as a team. As I continue my journey with Falcon Engineering, I am grateful for the supportive community I am part of and excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.
