Yes, We Are On a Mission
In 2011 one year after opening our marketing firm, RSM’s leaders attended a passionate speech delivered by Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup. His point: after the Great Recession, more businesses are closing than are opening, that we all need to encourage and help entrepreneurial businesses.
And since then, RSM has done everything it can to create a business model for entrepreneurial-minded businesses of all sizes and categories. Our goal has been to make professional marketing talent, tactics and technologies accessible to America’s middle market companies. And it’s working.
RSM hires for all marketing skill sets.

Brilliant Jerks Not Accepted
Values Come Before Skills
Because of the diversity of RSM’s clients around the country, RSM requires an exceptional “hospitality quotient” from all team members. Because all of us communicate regularly with clients who come from different backgrounds, regional cultures (and accents) and expectations, team members must have a higher-than-usual hospitality and emotional quotients and be prepared to serve, both clients and one another.
All of us work hard and play hard. The standard is being a “stunning colleague” in what you do.
