    I have been working at RGP (More than a year)

    Pros

    company really is about its employees. there are a ton of opps with this company and if you are rolled off an engagement trust there will be many directors calling you to get you back working asap. only down time was 2 weeks between assignments

    Cons

    only issue is that you are not paid if on the bench. they do give you vacation but that can be easily used up.

    Everyone is friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I never hated going to work because I knew I would be greeted warmly and I enjoyed what I was doing there

    Cons

    Software wasn't great, computer was very out of date. Sometimes I would be very bored if I finished my tasks quickly

    I worked at RGP as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They kept me employed through the financial crisis, and the work was largely rewarding. They do provide limited training opportunities for professional development, and paid a portion of my costs related to earning my PMP designation. The benefit package is solid.

    Cons

    The pay structure can vary materially between assignments based on clients need for overtime. Generally, you earn time and a half for overtime hours. This can be materially rewarding if you want to work hard and you have an opportunity to do so. I have experienced both extremes of 60+ hrs and flat 40. Make sure you are happy with your base rate, and ask about overtime before meeting with a potential client.

    Advice to Management

    More exposure to leadership team and focus on career development might be helpful to consultants. During my time with the company, I never received a formal review.

    I have been working at RGP as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay was fairly competitive, some back office people are really good and actually care.

    Cons

    Lack of training, poor communication with some back office people, lack of work in mid to smaller markets.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training, improve communication between consultants and back office, hold back office accountable for finding new work opportunities for consultants, do not rely on consultants to do this for you.

    I worked at RGP as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Surround consultants with great recruiting, business business development and admin staff. Good opportunities to travel if you want to. Consultants do not have to sell their next engagement.

    Cons

    Very limited firm infrastructure in terms of IT apps and support. Benefits more in-line with a contractor model than a consulting firm model. Difficult for consultants to feel a part of the Resources Global team, when they spend all their time at client sites.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in niche space and develop opportunities for consultants to connect with the Resources Global team and brand.

    Strong culture and values. You get to work with people who are excellent at what they do and are invested in the success of the company.

    Difficult economy in NYC and surrounding area.

    Glad to hear we're trying to break into the middle market.
