    I have been working at The RBA Group (New Jersey) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy, and flexibility. 4 Day work week is a nice benefit, even if the workload doesn't always permit it's still nice to have this fexibility. Great co-workers and good internal support from peers make each day a joy.

    Cons

    Work load sometimes becomes extreme, which is probably to be expected in this day and age, hands off attitude by senior management is both a blessing and a curse.

    Pros

    It's a non-corporate atmosphere, no office politics, friendly place to work. Nice work-life balance.

    Cons

    Just got bought by NV5. I am not sure what the future holds. Investment in equipment and software is a slow process and require patience.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of the changes that being bought by a publicly traded company can bring.

    Pros

    RBA was a great place to work with a warm and open office culture. One of RBAs greatest assets is its people. Everyone at the office works hard, is intelligent, and the people are very enjoyable to work with. They have a four-day workweek, which is a huge benefit, and any extra time in the office is paid through overtime. The managers are very easy going and knowledgeable and give you autonomy as long as you get your work done. RBA also has an outstanding softball team. Overall I would recommend working here.

    Cons

    The work can get repetitive but management does a great job of going after new and interesting work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at The RBA Group (New Jersey) full-time

    Pros

    4 Day work week was a huge selling point, which I sorely miss. Good interaction between departments. Great benefits, good salary. Felt like most supervisors/managers cared and valued people. Training and education opportunities offered. Recognition and appreciation given when due.

    Cons

    A lot of emphasis on billable hours, which made it very stressful during slow periods. Raises very small.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with "problem" people before they hurt morale.
