    I worked at RGP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    RGP as a company is willing to take risks, invest in people, invest in projects and embrace possibilities. For an employee this means opportunities are there if you are willing to take a risk and figure out how to communicate your needs to the correct people.

    Cons

    Being so open to taking risks though means a lack of feeling of security. What will happen if this project you have embraced fails? So far, RGP holds on tight to what it is doing regardless of success or failure. But for how long?

    Many employees are virtual. To some extent this is a bonus as we all get to work from home. But then, when oversight is required it is often lacking. By the time upper management realizes a correction needs to be made the project has crashed and burned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to put real oversight over managing principles to ensure projects being invested in will deliver as expected.

    Pros

    OK if you are an average bloke who does a good to above average job and can satisfy the client. Decent job and fairly regular opportunities for those in Analyst/Accountant to Senior to Manager to Senior Manager levels.

    Cons

    If you are an over-achiever, don't expect to be compensated for it. The market pay is pretty tight for the types of roles RGP has a niche obtaining within their client base.
    Not a good place for you as a consultant if you are in higher level positions. RGP does not know how to consistently recruit higher level roles from clients and so you are at risk for longer stints on the bench, plus see issue with market pay challenge note above. RGP is not a "premium" player and therefore cannot pay consultants for higher level positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To pursue a specialty niche for consulting practice or even a contract CFO/Controller/VP practice, carve it out as a separate brand under the RGP name in order to create a separate profile for this business.

    I worked at RGP part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    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    Software wasn't great, computer was very out of date.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

    Pros

    Flexibility, variety, lots of ability to learn best practices from top firms

    Cons

    You don't get paid between projects, which can be a substantial amount of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start training consultants to find work. Relying only on the Client Service folks to bring in work often does not work well.

    I have been working at RGP as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked in Dallas and Chicago offices, where leadership treated professionals as colleagues by respecting insights and abilities. Office leaders were diligent at keeping professionals active.

    Cons

    The uncertainty related to all temporary staffing. However, RGP manages this very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Office is very relaxing. Compensation is fair related to market. Leadership is very good if you are lucky to pair up with a nice director.

    Cons

    Projects might stop suddenly. Once on the bench, you will be given couple of weeks of grace time and then you will be forced to let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more sales people!

    Pros

    You know where you stand.

    Cons

    I do not perceive any real con’s to this company. It’s a consulting firm you work when they have work, and you sit when they do not.
