If you ask people at Little what keeps us excited about coming to work each day, you’ll hear repeatedly that it’s the people and the culture. We revel in the opportunity to work with such diverse people from so many fields of design. Our culture is open, informal, collaborative and fun–all reflected in recognition of Little as a ‘#1 Best Place to Work’ on multiple occasions.
01 Empowering Individuals
We’re ambitious—because we believe that ambitious people need to work in an ambitious firm to reach their fullest potential. We’re dedicated to unleashing the entrepreneurial spirit and giving people the freedom to explore new ideas, take bold chances and continuously learn from our experiences.
02 Teaching and Learning
We embrace diversity in all its forms; we each have something that makes us unique and different, and that makes our collaboration richer. We create a culture of teaching and learning through cross-mentoring that spans generations, disciplines, interests and talents. We strive to give each person exposure to the widest array of experiences possible to help them grow farther and faster than they could anywhere else.
03 Paying It Forward
We have a long and deep tradition of volunteer leadership and financial support for the non-profit agencies that make our communities better places for all people. We contribute thousands of hours of volunteer service in our communities each year, and our firm acts as a conduit to help people get connected to the service opportunities that mean the most to them. We are also participants in “The 1% Program,” giving us the chance to use our design talents, on a pro bono basis, to support non-profit agencies in our communities.
04 Mixing Business with Pleasure
Our profession is intense; we all know the pressure of a deadline. But it’s fun, too—when we’re working on projects that make a positive difference in people’s lives, and when we’re working with people who share our values, passions and humor, it can be exhilarating.
For that reason, we have flexible attitudes about work, and we have Quality of Life programs that allow us to balance the ebb and flow of our personal and professional lives.
We care passionately about our clients and each other, and we do our best to spark a spirit of excitement and discovery in everyone around us.
