Company Culture

At Ruskin Consulting, we believe in doing exceptional work, paying attention to the details, treating people right, being transparent, and always learning.

We care about the work you produce, not the amount of hours worked. Our goal is to help small businesses and agencies grow their business through digital ads, search engine optimization, WordPress development, and professional design.

We have run a profitable business for over 10 years. Our team is spread across 5 countries, and because of the geographic variance, we operate 24/7. We track our work on Basecamp for project management, Slack for communication, and P2 WordPress Theme for documentation.

Our organization has a flat hierarchy that encourages open communication. We have an open-door policy, and we call each other on a first-name basis with no sirs or madams.

  1. Be a Team Player

Be the person people want to be around.

Positively contribute and help when you can. At the end of the day, we all want to be happy and surround ourselves with good people. 

A positive attitude isn’t everything, but it makes all the difference. Happy people are more productive.

  1. Open Communication

Everyone is encouraged to ask any questions they desire. As the saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry. You cannot be a “Yes man” and say “yes” to everything that is told. If you don’t know something being asked of you – speak up and say so.

Everyone is encouraged to be direct at all times but be direct in a respectful manner. Being direct drastically cuts down on office drama and prevents wasted time.

  1. Challenges Everything

Don’t always take the easy route. We encourage taking risks, testing new processes, and suggesting new ideas. These challenges will take us on new adventures that make work and life more fun.

  1. Multi-Disciplinary

We believe everyone should always be learning. We encourage growth and want to keep our team together for a very long time. Everyone should be a” jack of all trades” and never expect to operate in one silo within the Company.

  1. Improvise and Innovate

Improvisation can boost innovation in companies. Don’t think because something has always been done one way; it cannot be improved or streamlined.

While preparation is key, plans don’t always go perfectly. Be prepared to improvise and innovate to deliver quality results to clients.

  1. Empathy

You need to have empathy for both your clients and fellow coworkers. Good communication with empathy is a must. EQ is more important than IQ.  

  1. Flat Hierarchy

We follow a flat hierarchy (horizontal hierarchy). There are no middle managers or processes to escalate issues. Anyone can raise their concern to any team member if there is a roadblock or issue. As an example, an intern could share concerns with the CEO.

  1. Upholding Commitments

Your word is your bond. Working autonomously and independently means someone isn’t there to monitor work or hover; you get to self-manage. Keeping your word ensures every timeline is met without disruptions.

  1. Be Exceptional

Exceptional professionals are accountable. They own their work, their decisions, and all of their results—good or bad. They bring their mistakes to their team’s attention rather than hoping no one will find out.

  1. Growth

The Company is dedicated to career and personal growth. With that in mind, the Company will reimburse you for books related to personal growth with the Company. Please check the approved book list for books that the Company will provide. Further, the Company will also sponsor or pay in full for specific events, seminars, and conferences the Company believes will benefit your personal growth.
