Decent benefits and PTO
Many great co-workers
A diverse group of employees
Opportunity to learn, depending upon whom you work for

Cons

Increased pressure to "network" since business downturn
Quality of client experiences vary
Increased pressure to keep time "down" on complex jobs because clients want lower fees

Don't "buy" business from clients and then expect jobs to come within an unrealistic budget
Don't make promises to clients without considering your staff's workload

    Retrospective Review of RK

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Senior Associate  in  Roseland, NJ
    Former Employee - Senior Associate in Roseland, NJ

    Pros

    compensation is OK, benefits are good, PTO for overtime worked during the busy season, some of the people that work there are nice & helpful, work location is more convenient than if you were to work in new york city, and free parking. Not humanly possible to think of any other positive things to say about RK.

    Cons

    very toxic work environment & culture where back-stabbing is encouraged & allowed, performance reviews are 2-faced (they tell you you are doing OK, then in secret closed meetings, they rip you apart), tons of hypocrisy from managers and partners, very clickish like a bad version of a high school drama, high ratio of minorities who are fired/laid off every year because they do not fit the classic "good ol' boys" RK culture, promises of promotions that never come to fruition, tons of excessive politics beyond what would be deemed as normal in any other company, senior management (especially in HR) have no ethics or backbone in treating employees & ex-employees, etc., etc., etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hard to give advice to managers who have such disregard for employees working for them, RK management needs to look at other competitors to see why they are not vilified to the extent RK is, good number of the managers and partners there need to go back to school and learn to act like human beings again, employees should also be treated as a resource of the company, not to be thrown out and discarded when their usefulness goes down after the busy tax season, need to practice what they preach regarding their trademarked "BALANCED" philosophy (if they even know what that means), message to prospective employees would be BEWARE.
