Why I enjoy working at Luckett & Farley:
In the words of the Greek orator, Demosthenus, “Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.” Great concept, but how do we implement his sage advice? While searching for some answers, I decided to look at our company’s Core Values. Do our Core Values apply to each & every project – even the small [more...]
As one of Luckett & Farley’s newest employee-owners and Director of First Impressions, my role is tailored toward providing exceptional service for our clients and dedicated business partners. When hired, I knew I had the personality to deliver a great experience, but I never expected my role to come with such ease. Luckett & Farley [more...]
American car companies and A/E firms have one thing in common. People. Sure, there are probably a few other things they have in common. They both build and design objects that shape our lives, but I would argue that it’s the value they place on their employees that brings them together. I recently visited the [more...]
Department Managers in the majority of architecture, engineering and interior design firms generally balance their project-specific responsibilities along with the management responsibilities of their respective departments.

It’s a fine line between being too distant and being just ”hands off” enough to allow our rising stars to gain valuable experience in dealing with the myriad of [more...]
Mistakes are a part of business. Any architectural, engineering or interior design firm that hasn’t suffered from a costly mistake probably doesn’t have any employees! Sure, we’ve all been in that situation – myself included. Unfortunately, the most effective way to have a lesson permanently seared into your brain is to make a big hairy mistake and have the initiative to shoot your [more...]
I often jokingly described the Luckett & Farley Employer of Choice Continuum as simultaneously, the best and the worst thing about our 160 year old A/E firm. It’s the best because our commitment to providing the best environment, culture and reward structure helps us attract and retain the industry’s top talent. Over the last 24 months alone [more...]
In fall 2012, I will start my third year at Ball State University, making this summer an ideal time to grab a sought after internship. Before becoming Luckett & Farley’s newest Marketing Intern, my pre-conceived ideas of an internship were grim, at best. I have always been told that internships are solely to get your [more...]
“What does it matter if I do business with a firm recognized for being a great place to work?” If you’re satisfied with mediocre working relationships and a resulting work product, then I supose it doesn’t matter. We believe you deserve better. We’ve been getting a lot of attention lately at Luckett & Farley for being a [more...]
