We love supporting our community and were excited to be able to donate 174 lbs of food to The Children's Lunchbox! This great organization partners with eight Title 1 elementary schools in Anchorage to provide 3,200 students with a bag of food to take home every weekend when they don’t have access to free school breakfast and lunch. Visit their website to see how you can get involved.
R&M was ranked #29 nationally in Zweig Group's 2017 Best Civil Engineering Firms to Work For list. This represents R&M’s seventh year on the list. Each year Zweig Group recognizes the creation of outstanding workplaces at the top architecture, structural engineering, civil engineering, environmental, geotechnical engineering, landscape architecture/planning and multi-discipline firms through the Best Firms To Work For Award. Firms are selected based on their workplace practices, employee benefits, employee retention rates and much more, evaluated through comprehensive employee surveys and corporate evaluations. Based on the survey results, R&M’s employees feel the firm has a culture of support and collaboration, is focused on quality and integrity, is a fun workplace and has great benefits. One respondent wrote, “Our firm routinely cares about its employees but has also shown great compassion for employees and families who are affected by tragedy and illness. We have a high standard of performance internally and we show that to our clients on a daily basis.”
R&M is well known for our commitment to excellence. We seek out employees who share our commitment to innovation and quality in all we do. We believe in taking care of our employees, maintaining a work environment that respects family values. We support the personal and professional accomplishments of our people and reward their contributions to our success.

R&M places a high value on teamwork and integrity - we believe that all professions offered within R&M are equal and we know that we are all much stronger together than we could ever be alone.
Unlike many others in our industry, R&M pays our employees for every hour they work. If you are field staff, this means time-and-a-half. If you are an in-the-office professional, this means straight time, but actual cash money, not banked leave time.
Our employee benefits package includes comprehensive medical coverage, dental insurance, vision insurance, long-term disability insurance, life insurance, between 16 and 26 days of personal leave (depending on tenure), 8 paid holidays per year, and participation in the company's 401(k) Retirement Plan. In addition, annual bonuses and profit sharing are paid to employees at the discretion of the company's Board of Directors. R&M pays 100% of health insurance premiums for our employees. After you have been employed by R&M for three years, we pay 100% of the premiums for your family as well.
The management team at R&M frequently surveys our employees to make sure we have a clear understanding of the things they value. R&M has worked hard to build a culture that reflects our core values:

Being recognized as "one of the best" confirms our investment we make in our people, our clients and our community.
R&M has carried out a successful intern program for many years. R&M recognizes that on-the-job experience can play an important role in advancing the careers of our future professionals. Internships are an excellent way for R&M to give back – they help students get their careers started and enhance the profession as a whole. Likewise, we understand the value our firm gets from interns through their creativity, energy and curiosity. R&M offers internship opportunities in all disciplines we provide, and focus our intern recruiting efforts on students majoring in those disciplines.
Through our internship program, R&M hopes to create relationships that last well beyond the internship. Many former R&M interns are now permanent employees at R&M or even members of client organizations.
