Sagar“I have worked with other firms prior to joining RK&K and this has been by far the best experience. I just really love doing what I do because of the interesting work we do for our clients every day as well as the people that I work with. RK&K have reserves of talent from different disciplines of civil engineering who are just a phone call away. The culture and solidarity among the employees has been the absolute best. We help each other and inspire each other to meet client expectations and most often provide something extra. People here are passionate about their work. This is a terrific company that really values each and every individual who works here. They prove that we are valued and appreciated by never letting good work go unnoticed. The experience I am getting here has made me a better engineer and coming to work for RK&K was the best career move I ever made."

Amanda"After finishing up my first year with RK&K, I can say with confidence that it is an excellent company to work for. There are so many good things to say- the management is responsive to concerns, employees are always sharing knowledge and helping each other develop technical skills, and the work environment is friendly and fun while still remaining professional. This is a great place to grow as an engineer and learn about design from some really sharp minds. I am proud to be a part of the RK&K family."

Ian"RK&K is a fantastic company to not only build a career, but to grow as an individual. I came here right out of college looking for somewhere I could be a part of meaningful projects while showcasing and developing my skills. The collaborative nature of the workplace allows for us to build on each other’s experiences and become stronger both as individuals and as a team. It also encourages us to develop relationships that we will carry with us through our careers, building our confidence along the way. I’ve been thrown into challenging and exciting projects from day one, and developing creative solutions to these challenges brings great satisfaction. It’s great to be part of such an ambitious company with a desire to grow its employees."
