ARCO Culture

This industry can demand long hours so it’s important that all of our associates take time to have fun. Here are just a few examples of how we enjoy a healthy work-life balance.

Sabbatical Program

One of the most unique and rewarding perks of working at ARCO Design/Build Northeast is the Sabbatical Program. For every 5-years of employment you receive a 30-day sabbatical in addition to your vacation time for the year. The company also provides a travel stipend. This has opened the door for our employees to experience some once-in-a-lifetime trips.

Volunteer Work

Each year, the office sets a goal of volunteer hours we would like to reach as a team. We get involved in a variety of opportunities including: Rebuilding Together Philadelphia, Philabundance, Cradles to Crayons and 5k runs for a cause. Giving back to the community is important to our team and we have fun participating and lending a hand where we can.

Intramural Sports/Office Tournaments

Our office regularly engages in “friendly” competition. Our Project Managers are involved in an intramural basketball league close by to the office and spend some of their lunches at a nearby gym where they go head to head in racquetball matches. In addition to activities outside of the office, our team also cuts loose occasionally in the office with ping-pong tournaments, which add a nice break in the work day.

culture2Subcontractor Appreciation/Elite Project Partners Celebration

Each time we start a new project, we pick a day to throw a barbeque for the subcontractors and workers on site. Together, we enjoy lunch prepared by ARCO’s finest to thank the subs for their extraordinary efforts.

Every year we hold our annual Elite Project Partners Awards. This event gives our Project Managers and Superintendents the opportunity to recognize the outstanding subcontractors we work with throughout the year. The night is a celebration complete with food, drinks and laughs. Most importantly, it’s a chance for us to thank our subcontractors and give everyone an opportunity to mingle outside of a jobsite.
