    Pros

    Most people working at RS&H are genuinely great, and care about what they're doing there.

    Cons

    The CEO is dull and unexciting, and that's how this exciting company gets stifled creatively. Some associates ruin experience with fear driven vindictiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Top chiefs: You should Inform the company of your schemes, and trust the people you hired under you to make good decisions for you. They're more informed than you.

    Pros

    Many of the employees at RS&H are highly talented while also very friendly and helpful to entry-level engineers. Flexibility with scheduling and hours is very nice to have. Managers care about the well-being of their employees and support their growth. Communication from the top of the company is surprisingly good; employees are kept in the loop with the company vision, financial management, goals, and even officer / executive meeting minutes.

    Cons

    Some employees don't seem to do a whole lot and the harder workers are forced to pick up the slack. However, hard work is always noticed by managers who will tell you they are thankful for the work you put in.

    Advice to Management

    It is unfortunate when some employees are significantly less productive and skilled than others and waste time and blow project budgets.

    Pros

    There are only two pros to working at RS&H, there are some great people there and
    second, I had an opportunity to travel.

    Cons

    Senior management is out for themselves.
    All the workers are just a number.
    Very poor raised and bonuses.
    Lack of direction from senior management.
    Very long hours and no thanks for it.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get into other markets then the ones they have now.
    Long hours and little pay increases makes for a disgruntled staff.

    Pros

    The best thing about the company is the people. For the most part they are friendly and have a smaller town vibe because a lot of the projects and offices are located in secondary hub airports. Their compensation is fair, about on par with other firms but not much better. Benefits are possibly slightly better than average.

    Cons

    Where to start. There used to be a clear direction for the company, focus on secondary hubs and small airports. We're specialized in that and we have the skills and capabilities. Recently RS&H started cutting people to the point where the offices are only barely functional yet going after big primary hub airports which we no longer have the capability to complete. This just creates stress and inefficiency. In addition, since each office is so lean now, there isn't really much in the way of promotion and raises generally keep up with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your strengths and stop trying to play with the big boys unless you really are prepared to spend the resources to compete.

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on large projects

    Cons

    Employees are just numbers, unless they're a vice president or higher.

    Pros

    Extensive training in the Aerospace and Defense industry and every day there was something to do and projects to work on to keep busy. Also provided interns a look at how an architecture and engineering company works in the office and how they accomplish winning federal contracts.

    Cons

    Only offers a one-time internship per person for 3-months. Regardless if they believe you've provided excellent quality work, they cannot extend the internship because of Senior Management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep interns on board if you see potential for them to work as a full-time employee.

    Pros

    A very laid back environment and flexible work schedule. The company has a good reputation in their industry for producing quality work and being very customer focused. A zero debt company.

    Cons

    Management is very inconsistent. Some are very approachable, while others are very closed off and contribute very little to the growth and development of those they supervise. It's also nearly impossible to be promoted at RS&H. Even extremely motivated employees never find out about open positions above them until after they are already filled. The company likes to fill new positions by stealing employees away from their competitors versus promoting from within. Benefits and pay are below average for the industry. I left the company for a much better opportunity because I could not get a promotion in 6 years of working there. Annual raises were only enough to cover the cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, and increase pay and benefits to hire and retain talented employees.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are really great to work with. Majority of the projects are interesting.

    Cons

    On the job training opportunities are not open to ALL employees. There is a level of favoritism displayed when projects are assigned. Cliques are VERY REAL here. Trust your instincts.

    Advice to Management

    Be more diverse in your selection of candidates. Be fair in project assignments. Do not show favoritism. While you may believe it goes unnoticed, be assured, it does not.
