    Pros

    I was lucky enough to have a smooth experience working with RGP. Pay was good when working and it was nice to accumulate PTO with some paid holidays.

    Cons

    There's always uncertainty in the air when working with RGP. Clients can end your contract abruptly and you never know what's next. Unpaid benchtime sucks too.

    Pros

    Decent pay & benefits. Ability to get overtime and earn PTO with some holiday pay. Client Service Director tries to keep in touch by coming up to the client site and taking us out to lunch at least once a month.

    Cons

    Not always knowing how long the current project will last, when the next project will be and how long bench time will be.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your current consultants and make sure they continue to get work.

    Pros

    Well respected companies Decent salary time and half over 40 hours a week

    Cons

    VERY political environmet between RGP senior management and consultants. I choose consulting to get away from the politics Some immature consultants. Examples, making fun of client employees Managing Director did not make an effort to learn what was actually going on at client.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to understand the project to a certain degree. Don't count on the "favorite" consultant to give you the truth when they are stabbing you in the back.


  6. Great place to work if you like variation and learning new things

    Pros

    I have worked fro resources for over 5 years and love it. Every project is different and I am always learning new things. If you need a lot of hand holding or if you enjoy doing the same thing over and over Resources is not for you. Benefits are above average

    Cons

    Bench time- If you are not on a project, and you use up all of your vacation time, you do not get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Good job - I am really enjoying my time here at the company. Keep up the good work. Thanks for coming back Don Murray.

    Pros

    Almost without exception, the consultants from Resources Global Professionals have been smart, collegial, and hard working. The management seems genuinely concerned about the company's consultants and dedicated to their success. They really are more than a headhunting firm...the look for loyalty and long term relationships with their consultants. The benefits are good and the stock purchase plan can be lucrative when the stock price is rising.

    Cons

    The company does project work and pays by the hour. Though they work hard to keep employees staffed, beach time does occur in some of the smaller practices/markets. It can be tough on the pocketbook. If you need a steady paycheck, this reality can make things difficult at RGP.

    Advice to Management

    Giving consultants more opportunities to assist with business development- as well as have some opportunities to maintain income during bench time for some of the smaller practices and markets would allow even better retention of top consultants.

    Pros

    Good gig if you only want part time work and can handle a lot of benchtime sitting around waiting for your next job.

    Cons

    Sporadic work. Boring assignments. Assignments typically much shorter than originally contracted for. Recruiters and Client Service Directors give you constant lip service about upcoming opportunities they are working on.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with some form of benchtime compensation plan for up to 2 months.
