Pros

It is like working for a permanent company since company provides all the benefits like PTO, 401K, Medical, Dental, and Vision, and online classes. All the client directors try to find the right fit for consultants and clients needs.

Cons

Downtime between projects but they do try to keep consultants busy if you have been with them for awhile.

    Pros

    You'll meet some fine, experienced consultants
    The clients are generally high quality
    They have a nice benefits package

    Cons

    Negotiating your annual raise is a major issue
    They are almost totally bottom line oriented. You are just a cog in their machinery.
    The positions you'll fill tend to have low responsibility
    You get nothing extra in your paycheck for noticing opportunities and helping to bring in business
    Their retrospective facing staff augmentation model has lead to ossified management

    Advice to Management

    Get some engagements with firms that are truly reshaping the world economy.
    Have at least one true specialty area to which your employees can aspire
    Encourage your consultants to step out of the box

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment, supportive employee culture.

    Cons

    The company is trying to branch out with their consultation delivery model into new markets, such as Information Management, conflict minerals, and other areas. Historically, RGP has positioned itself well as a staffing firm in these areas, but has not yet invested the right amount of effort, money or focus to ascend into the highly competitive consultative arena. Investment in building these "new" areas for the company is weak and cautious - the general consensus is to first make money in a new field, then invest. Cart is before the horse, limiting options for consultants on the bench and missing opportunities for sorely needed revenue growth for middle management. Result: word on the street is the Big Four firms are eating our lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Either consider investing in the market development you wish to grow, or hobble it and remain on a flat growth curve. Net net we will get what we pay for. The stock price reflects this reality, and as of the last earnings call shareholders are clearly getting bored, and lack significant interest in the future of the company. This should be a wake up call.
