Life at Roux

If you are a recent graduate who has worked hard to earn your degree, who is looking for a company with the resources and interest to invest in your career, you will find the environment at Roux to be welcoming, challenging, and very rewarding—a place where your talents and skills can thrive.

Senior management’s doors are always open, everyone’s ideas are welcome, and decisions can be made and acted upon quickly. In addition, we provide an employee mentoring program where senior managers and more junior employees meet in a casual one-on-one setting to discuss the management and financial aspects of the firm and the industry.

It is in everyone’s best interest for our employees to develop their skills and advance professionally as quickly as possible. Roux is a growing firm and we much prefer to recruit for the entry level and fill our senior positions by promoting from within. To achieve this, Roux encourages employees to commit to continuous education, self-improvement, and professional licensing. Ongoing employee training and opportunities for professional development hours are available through a combination of in-house seminars, vendor presentations, e-learning classes, webinars, and external training programs. Ongoing career development is also encouraged through active participation in career-based organizations, attendance and presentation at professional conferences, and preparation of scientific papers. Professional licensing is also highly encouraged and supported by the firm.
