    Pros

    I’ve worked here a long time; I think it’s a great place to be. Everyone has new or newish computers, there’s indoor plants and flowers, a well-stocked snack area. Pay for performance enables comp growth for all staff, regardless of function. Birthdays & anniversaries are celebrated for all full time staff. There’s lots of training provided. There’s lots of opportunity to grow sales, recruiting, and client-facing skills, as well as public speaking, business writing and lead generation/cold calling skills. Management is approachable and quick to help anyone who needs it. It’s a great place to learn a little bit about all industries, the projects are usually interesting. It’s a great place to meet lots of interesting people who are top performers in a variety of industries. Over the time I’ve worked here, Management has made a lot of changes, some kept, some discarded, to make the work environment more enjoyable, productive and profitable for staff. New projects and clients come in all the time, it’s a dynamic, high energy place. My personal favorite, there's also a matched 401k, decent health benefits, and gym membership. Physical health and work/life balance is strongly supported. Everyone is friendly, open, social and strives to be helpful. This is an especially great place for people who want to build up to their own recruiting desk.

    Cons

    While not “cons” per say, RSI isn’t right for everyone. RSI is very metrics driven, and employees are held accountable for performance. Those who meet expectations earn higher expectations. It’s also an open office space with cubicles and shared workspaces. Minimal sound/sight privacy. Plans are to increase openness. Recruiting is basically sales, so the office is very fast paced, high energy, noisy. RSI is very entrepreneurial- there’s lots of change as clients and candidates come and go and as tools are tried out, incorporated or discarded. Again, not “cons” exactly, but not the right place for everyone. RSI is not right for people who need a quiet, introspective, private work environment, or need a lot of consistency and predictability throughout the day or work poorly under pressure and scrutiny. RSI is not the place for people who aren’t “people people,” as all roles deal with clients, candidates and work in teams with other staff, and everyone meets a wide variety of people and personalities. These qualities aren't really cons, as they are a typical part of any business oriented around selling and delivering a service, but some some personalities can find these qualities challenging or uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needed: Flexible hours for full time staff.
