    Terrible leadership, bullyish attitude

    Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsHigh quality projects
    Great compensation and benefits

    ConsThe marketing leadership is terrible and not clear with their expectations of their staff. They are bullies and do anything possible to beat you down until you begin to believe their unflattering comments. Instead of feeling like you're on a team, you face an uphill battle with trying to get your work done on time and it's a scramble to the very end (for which you will be blamed for).

    Watch out for the marketing manager and the BD executive, they are deceiving folks who are NOT looking out for the best interests of their employees. They have been through THREE marketing coordinators between 2012-2013 alone. That isn't normal and should not be acceptable.

    Also, don't bother going to HR for help as they are only looking out for the best interests of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of firing/laying off marketing coordinators, maybe you should keep a closer eye on the management because that's where your problem lies.

    R&S in a nutshell

    Superintendent (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsTraining 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.

    ConsBecoming 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 Senior ManagementBetter 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.

    All General Contractors are the same

    Project Engineer (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

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

    Consworking 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 Senior Managementyou claim that employees come first, then act like it.

    High Quality, Lame Culture

    Project Engineer (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsR&S does really great work. They gain a lot of repeat business due to their customer service and high quality.

    ConsThe Christmas party themes from the last three years probably sum up the company culture best: Cowboy Saloon, Beach Boardwalk, and Star Wars. What the? People are spread out all over the Bay Area so there's no center of gravity for any kind of work community. Most people live pretty boring lives or don't talk about their lives outside of work at all. Consequently, the company culture is pretty weak.

    Also, the company stresses safety to a fault. Last year the top safety goals were to raise awareness about skin cancer and get everyone in the company first-aid trained. Ridiculous. These should not have been anywhere near the top.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are very hard-working and competent. You also do a great job stressing the value of quality and customer service in winning new contracts. Work on making bids more competitive so the company can snatch some of the high-profile jobs from Webcor.

    great place to work...

    Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsR&S is a great place to work, our execs and sr. managers really do try to assist in your personal growth and give you every opportunity to achieve success at whatever level you desire.

    Consrecently bought by a larger, national company has not been hard. as a front line employee on the jobsite, i have seen nothing different in day to day operations. in fact, marketing and satisfaction from projects completed has gone up...

    Advice to Senior Managementoffer continuous feedback on individual performance (i.e. quarterly reviews, and 360 degree reviews to give managers critical feedback from their employees) as well as quarterly marketing updates in depth...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
