Our Culture

How we Work Together

Meetings can be a barometer of team health. A sign of a good company culture is when the weekly staff meeting is filled with smiles, laughs, AND productivity. It’s this combination that really sums up how it feels to work at AJW. We tweak our formats and processes to be more informative, efficient, and respectful of everyone’s time.

This approach filters through to our client meetings – a clarity of purpose to an agenda, to keep us on track so we can continue doing the work we need to do – because we have a lot of good work to accomplish. We stay on point so our clients don’t miss a beat from us.

At AJW, you find us working hard because we believe in what we do, and we like what we do. We enjoy working together as we share ideas and workloads across Microsoft Teams and state lines. “I can help with that” and “What do you think” is the common language we speak.

Why we love AJW

Over the course of my 4+ years at AJW, the firm has allowed me to pursue my passion for climate policy while simultaneously helping me grow and succeed in my career. Working alongside the senior leadership has been instrumental in helping me succeed at AJW, identify the areas of climate policy of most interest to me, and provide quality results for clients.

Caelin MacIntoshSenior Policy Analyst

I joined AJW right after graduation, and since the first day, I knew that my ideas are valued here. I am continually impressed by the professionalism and dedication of my co-workers and inspired by the ever-learning environment fostered within the firm.

Jo Thapa, AssociateEnergy Transition

Working at AJW allows me to not only work on policy issues that are important to today’s political conversations, but also to work with clients who are finding groundbreaking ways to support the energy transition. I am lucky to be able to represent companies and organizations whose work is supported in a bipartisan way. The new and innovative technologies AJW advocates for makes my work exciting every day.

Jessica Johnson BennettPartner

As someone with a technical background in clean fuel R&D, I am curious about the impact of policy on bringing these technologies to market and I wanted to learn directly from the experts. AJW’s collaborative working environment requires me to apply my technical knowledge and research process to aid clients in a broad set of projects, while affording me ample opportunity to learn from policy experts who are passionate about clean technology. Everyone at AJW is supportive and dedicated to the professional growth and development of other employees, making this the perfect place to learn and grow while feeling fulfilled about the work that you do.
