The company LOOKS good when you start off. BUT you learn quickly how much politics is involved.

Pros

The employees are very friendly and the company DOES try to keep employees happy.

Cons

to continue from my "pros" sentence, the company FAILS miserably in TRYING to keep us happy! so much politics. and the seniors and managers are HORRIBLE! they do not explain to you. the training sucks its all on the job training.

Advice to Management

they need to learn to be patient and help the juniors instead of actually yell at them in front of everyone as if they are in some class room. no such thing as corporate environment!

    Pros

    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
    Quality of training varies from poor to excellent, with little oversight

    Advice to Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
