Administrative Assistant / Case Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – September 19, 2018
The managers always rewarded good work with a great Christmas dinner party every year. The benefits were great. Working with the contractors was very fast paced and interesting. I worked with great Architects, Project Managers, and staff.

Overall RS&H is a great company but the office I worked from is highly dysfunctional and negative. There is a lot of favoritism going on and pettiness. Very hard to get ahead if you are in a certain position.
Internship (Former Employee) – Merritt Island, FL – June 6, 2018
-A typical day included checking into the office and saying hi to your cubical neighbors, checking emails for any updates with projects, either continuing work from yesterday or conferring with the project head about what the next steps are. -Learned from experienced engineers tricks and tips in certain 3D modelling programs that I still use to this day. -Management included the project leads who then reported to a project manager. Bosses above that did not really effect the day to day life. Project leads were just senior engineers in the same job position as you while project managers were one position higher. -Hardest part of the job was staying busy, work was slow during my tenure due to a cancelled project so trying to balancing free time and staying productive was an annoyance. -Most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers interactions and all the lunch trips with others. The work itself was interesting and different for each project.
Senior Architect / Project Manager (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – June 5, 2018
This company is very good in terms of overall flexibility of work/life balance. Opportunities for advancement are available. Leadership structure is pretty clear and delineated. However, there needs to be better direction and investment in mentoring, training, and valuing associates on a regular basis. There needs to be a greater emphasis on developing a company culture throughout all satellite offices. Overall, this is a good place to work with competitive salaries and benefits.
Benefits and work flexibility
Lack of investment in associates, Corporate "Bottom-Line" mentality
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Merritt Island, FL – April 27, 2018
I really enjoyed my time with RS&H. I did learn a lot form the industry. The only reason that I left RS&H was because I could not sell my house, and my little son was ready for the VPK. We did have 2 sons were in school at the time.
RS&H is a great place to work. I served as an in-house consultant to one of our clients and was tasked with a few projects that were challenging but provided great experience. I would recommend it to anyone looking for employment in the A/E/C industry.
RS&H provides fully integrated architecture, engineering, and consulting services to help clients realize their most complex facility and infrastructure projects for land, air, and space. We are committed to bringing extraordinary solutions to our clients through the promise of imagination, ingenuity, and innovation. With a tradition of excellence that began in 1941, we are consistently ranked among the nation's top 100 design firms. We attribute our success to an unwavering commitment to our core values of: integrity, quality service, business success and valuing associates.

One of RS&H's core values is Valuing Associates, and the company strives to keep its employees happy and hardworking. Although it's a mid-size, RS&H has a small-company feel with the resources of a major large-size enterprise. Both upper and middle management works hard to listen to the associates, and works hard to provide a challenging and rewarding career. The company is well-respected by its competitors and industry.
With it's latest management changes, RS&H is on the verge of major growth. RS&H needs more hardworking, innovative, and creative talent to join the team.
professional (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 10, 2016
such an easy company to work for. low demand on one's time but they struggle to define a growth strategy, operating as a small company and can't change direction. great people in general, but not moving forward

Pro Engineer Modeler, Designer, Technician II (Former Employee) – Merritt Island, FL – June 26, 2013
Every week starts with a kick off meeting for weekly plans every monday morning. This is also a kind of weekly attendance and evaluation time period as well as a time for awards or rewards if any be due. Everyone explains their plans or projects for the day and if someone is available, now is the time to say it. Once logged in, work on your system until lunch. It is easy to walk around and talk with others to get help if needed. A code word announcement is made symbolizing the need to take a break prior to lunch and to head to circle K for a snack. Then back to work until lunch. An hour later you continue working until the bell rings. I find this a great setup. In overtime situations however you could be there as much as your body allows in order to meed a deadline. This somehow is even more challenging and exciting of a time.
This job taught me how to deal better with different types of personality types. It was a constant reminder of why the Meyers Briggs test is used in business environments.
Management is not well defined and typically I saw many cooks in the kitchen. But past all the chiefs there were not many indians. This is why I believe the quantity on student interns always remains high and they have no committment to hiring after they have gotten what they needed from you. I passed on the space center for this position believing it would have greater job security. oops.
The hardest part of the job is knowing your place and that even though you eat lunch with the VP every day...you are still just a CAD intern with no weight on decisions.
The most enjoyablemore... part of the job is seeing the product of your efforts completed and the joy of accomplishment that follows.less
You get tons of hands on experience with CAD and quality benefits
The experience was too light on improving engineering analysis skills
