Cannon Ranks in Top 30 Best Places to Work


The Pacific Coast Business Times recently recognized Cannon as one of the best places to work in the Central Coast of California. Pacific Coast Business Times is a weekly business journal of record serving Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties.

Cannon ranked among top businesses in the Tri Counties from Ventura to Paso Robles as one of the best firms with 35 employees or more. Each year, the publication reaches out to employees with a survey to collect nominations and determine the region’s best employers. Only individuals employed by the organization and based in the region may submit, and employees are limited to one survey submission.

Cannon’s President, Mike Cannon, had this to say about the company’s achievement: “I am so proud of this team. It is uplifting to see so many share such positivity about their teammates. It also speaks volumes that they took the time to participate in this program. We appreciate that the Pacific Coast Business Times puts this program together to give voice to employees – recognizing companies who make it a priority to build and invest in great culture and workplaces.”

The survey measured key factors, such as how effectively companies adapted to COVID-19 operations, their leadership strategies, and whether employees felt valued in their positions. A few employees shared what they enjoy most about working at Cannon with us:

“We’ve got a great group of talented people. And when you can take that group of people and use those talents to help our clients achieve their goals, it makes our job that much more enjoyable and worthwhile.”

“My favorite part about working at Cannon is the breadth of engineering knowledge at my disposal.”

“The variety of project types, opportunities to grow, and being part of such a large and diverse team.”

From movie nights and sunset hikes to the Cannon Coasters biking the length of the California Coastline, Cannon has made it a priority to engage their employees in team building. This year, as Cannon celebrates 45 years in business, they are also celebrating the people who contribute to Cannon’s status as a best place to work on the Central Coast. Thank you for participating in the survey!
