    I have been working at RBA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You aren't slotted into a narrow role at RBA. Since I've started working here I've been involved in Pre-Sales work, Statement of Work creation, Business Analysis, Architecture, Engineering and Training. RBA takes thought leadership from their employees seriously and gives us the ability to lead technical workshops and research new solutions that can be delivered to clients. There isn't a lot of vertical movement with titles in the consultant ranks. That being said it's nice to not get hung up on attaining titles, and overall compensation for consultants is very good. If your goal is to grow your skill set this is a great place for that. RBA also strongly believes in work/life balance and it's a great place to work as a consultant with a family. If you do have to work overtime for a client more times than not you'll have access to revenue sharing for that time to offset the loss of family time. They also carry a bench if you're between clients. You can use bench time to sharpen skills and get caught up with technology skills that you may not have been exposed to at previous clients.

    Cons

    For people hung up on titles, having a "consultant" title for a number of years with little chance at a new title may be frustrating. PTO/Holiday time is below average. If you do have access to revenue sharing (totally depends on your client) you can cash out revenue sharing time for PTO rather than pay. Bonus compensation is based on annual client billings figures rather than quarterly. Consulting has natural ebbs and flows, and if you have a bad quarter it'll be difficult to get your annual bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in your consultants and encourage them to become thought leaders in the IT community.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at RBA.

    Interview

    There were three interviews: the first was an informal discussion with a recruiter, the second was a technical interview with one of the more senior consultants, and the third was with the practice manager. My technical interview was more conversational and centered around my experiences--not a list of technical questions.
