Established by Forward Thinking Visionaries

Tunnell Consulting was founded in 1962 during a time of rapid economic expansion. A core group of forward-thinking experts provided consulting services for strategic planning, manufacturing and industrial engineering, and Total Quality Management (TQM) projects. Serving a wide range of clients, from transportation to life sciences, they formed the foundation of what is today’s Tunnell Consulting.


Our staff consists of highly credentialed and experienced individuals who have extensive business, engineering, scientific and industry expertise. We operate as a team and value a diversity of ideas, opinions, backgrounds and perspectives. Our corporate culture is based on empowerment, integrity, collaboration and mutual respect. We feel the commitment to one another is as important as our commitment to our clients.


Tunnell’s Total Rewards philosophy provides competitive compensation programs and “above market” rewards, including a rich benefits program. We recognize the important role employee benefits play as a critical component of overall compensation. Our benefit plans provide you a firm foundation for today and prepare you and your family for a healthier tomorrow. Tunnell is proud to be a 100% employee-owned organization and, as such, all employees are eligible to participate in the ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).


The ESOP is a defined contribution plan with annual employer contributions made to the plan on behalf of each employee. Tunnell is one of the oldest Employee Stock Ownership companies in the country! The value to our employees is that as the company grows financially, so does the financial nest egg of each employee. As an ESOP member, you will be an owner of the company and can see the direct impact of your work on the value of our stock.

Employees may select from multiple plans and tiers. Our medical plans also include perks like nutrition counseling, health coaching, fitness membership discounts and reimbursements, and more.

We offer a rich dental plan that includes coverage for basic and major services, with both in-network and out-of-network benefits.

Our generous vision benefit also includes options for in-network and out-of-network providers.

We offer a company- and employee-funded HSA to provide employees and their dependents with additional funds to cover co-pays, medical, dental and vision care fees etc., not covered by our medical plan.

Our company-funded HRA is also available to employees who decline medical coverage with Tunnell.

Our employee-funded FSA Health Care and/or Dependent Care Accounts are also available on a pre-tax basis.

Our employees have the benefit of basic Life/AD&D coverage, fully funded by the company.
Fully funded by Tunnell, short- and long-term disability benefits offer peace of mind by paying a portion of employees’ regular salary during periods of illness or injury requiring an employee to be away from the workplace.
The EAP is a company-funded and confidential program that assists employees with personal problems and/or work-related problems that may impact their job performance, health, mental & emotional well-being.
In addition to our ESOP, employees are eligible to participate in our 401(k) savings plan, allowing them to save additional funds for their future.
We offer a robust employee referral program, as we have found that our employees play a key role in our recruitment process.
Our employees’ charitable contributions are supported through matching gifts program.
Our employees enjoy an attractive vacation benefit that increases with length of service, as well as paid sick time and a generous slate of paid holidays. Tunnell also offers extended leaves of absence, including paid parental leave. Employees are eligible for extended time off for their own illness, adoption, family care, maternity, medical conditions, military, jury, bereavement, or parental care.
Tunnell is committed to providing employee flexibility that promotes a supportive work environment while acknowledging the need for a balanced personal and professional life. Much of our work allows for flexible work schedules and telecommuting.
