Senior management’s doors are always open, everyone’s ideas are welcome, and decisions can be made and acted upon quickly.

It is in everyone’s best interest for our employees to develop their skills and advance professionally as quickly as possible. Roux Associates 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 Associates’ 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.
