We know that learning doesn’t stop when you get your degree and that most professional development occurs on the job as you face real challenges and solve real problems. At Barr you'll have opportunities to work with and learn from experienced engineers, scientists, and technical professionals. We also provide targeted programs to foster development at all stages of your career. 


New-employee support helps everyone get off to a good start. Sponsors answer questions and help you get situated. Orientation sessions bring everyone up to speed, and monthly lunch meetings address specific topics and concerns.

Coaching and mentoring

Coaching and mentoring programs provide you with a coach to assist with career development and, if you'd like one, a mentor with whom you can discuss larger career and life issues. Barr’s coaching program helps you set short- and long-term goals and figure out how to best achieve them.

Training and education support

Internal professional development training is ongoing and offered in a variety of formats—seminars, webinars, workshops, panel discussions, lunch-and-learns—covering everything from regulatory topics to client service, from business development to project management. Individual education accounts provide you with your own annual budget to attend seminars and conferences, pursue an advanced degree, or get career-related training.
