    Pros

    Training is great. The ability to take on as much as you can handle is there. Company is willing to provide as much support as you need to make sure you succeed.

    Depending on your direct manager the annual reviews can be very helpful. My reviews were done by the top tier of upper management and were thorough and honest, very helpful in my growth and development.

    The culture for the company revolves around safety. Something many company's talk about, very few if any, really follow through with it. R&S truly cares about the safety of their employees and those of the subcontractors.

    Cons

    Becoming a large corporation with the Tutor Perini takeover. Used too have a small company feel, now you are a number. Benefits were slashed via email. Communication from Senior Management is very poor.

    80% of the employees are top notch. Unfortunately the ranking by some upper management leaves one to wonder how there head got so far up their backside.

    Depending on your direct manager the annual reviews can be very poor, some do not take the time to really review the employee. Several of the upper managent staff assigned to do reviews do a gloss over and fail to truly evaluate the employee, this is a huge disservice to the employee and the company.

    You can get specialized into doing specific tasks which hampers your overall growth.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication to keep your better employees is imperative. The communication at R&S has gotten worse each and every year.

    Upper Management listens to the wrong 2nd tier managers for staffing decisions and really made some bad moves on layoffs.

    Get back to what made you.... Special Projects and the small company feel.

    Pros

    Good salary, but this is up in the air since the buyout of perini

    Cons

    working schedule, lack of support by upper management, poor bidding practices, since buyout of perini employees come behind stock prices and senior management bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    you claim that employees come first, then act like it.
