    I have been working at RGP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never a dull moment, we are always off to new bigger messes to clean up and help the client move to a better place!
    Always have full support from the home office when experiencing a client issue.

    Cons

    Some clients are further from home...but then you get to earn hotel points to use later!

    We Are Not a Staffing Agency. You Are an Employee...As Long As You Are Billing Hours

    I worked at RGP full-time

    Pros

    Certain offices have long term relationships with clients. In theory, RGP should have a robust pipeline of ongoing projects and leads, especially places like Seattle and Bay Area.

    Cons

    I hear them talk a lot about "hot opportunities" and wanting to present people ASAP for "breaking roles". In over 16 months however, no new clients or confirmed projects in Pacific NW. Nothing. Large companies do not seem to be using RGP anymore. Some have never heard of RGP - something is very wrong.

    RGP in PNW is apparently trying to adjust and regain revenue by short changing consultants. Ask RGP what they will be billing you at to their client - they should tell you - many firms do as a matter of transparency and good faith.

    RGP will try to convince folks they are "employees" and are really earning "so much more in benefits, time and a half OT", etc. reality is, true employees are paid a consistent salary, regardless or hours per week "on bench". RGP DOES NOT PAY IF YOU ARE NOT ASSIGNED TO A PROJECT. Zero, zip, nada.

    You do not accrue PTO, or benefits access when you are unassigned. Nothing. Good deal for RGP: try to lock people in at lower rate with promise of billable hours and access to clients.

    If a project is cancelled, RGP pays you nothing and you no longer earn access to medical/dental/PTO. So you accept a lower rate and absorb all of the risk for RGP??? Uh, not a good deal - too many legit opportunities in PNW to mess with this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure where things went wrong: RGP was part of Deloitte and used to be well respected. What happened?

    I worked at RGP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible work schedule with sort or long term assignments. Opportunity to work in a variety of industries and work in various states.

    Cons

    Depends on what office you are working out of, but the majority of management are good people. Overall it is a caring company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some better quality management people in the NC office. The Raleigh are is a huge opportunity without the right client service people there.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and communication.

    Cons

    Due to the uniqueness of the project, they likely will not be able to find another position for me after this contract ends.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Southfield, MI

    I worked at RGP as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The hourly rate was good based on experience and education. In addition, the benefits were great and you can carryover your vacation time from year to year.

    Cons

    If you are not on a project, you have to use vacation time or apply for unemployment. Also, if you are unassigned for 90 days, you are involuntary terminated, but can get rehired when a project comes open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better client service directors who could sell their services to potential employers. This will help ensure employees are employed instead of being on the bench without pay.

    Pros

    Professional environment. RGP treats its employees like professionals.

    Cons

    When hired I was told there were plenty of jobs to send me on; however, after being hired I was "on the bench" for months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring new employees to a minimum until ALL jobs have been staffed.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good about work life balance. Some of my co workers were really brilliant. Nice location to my home.

    Cons

    Very closed culture, not a lot of communication. "Old boys club" in a lot of respects. The management seems to encourage a this closed off way of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a team atmosphere in the internal offices.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at RGP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Time & 1/2 for overtime. Only advantage over other staff aug firms. Very AVERAGE benefits - pay some holidays and accrue vacation time, Some firms give neither.

    Cons

    Very "temp firm" atmosphere. Pull people off the street for immediate needs and long bench time after that in most cases. Very minimal training available ($200.00? per year allotment). Just not selling much business these days or projects in pipeline.
    High margin billers to clients, but most clients (and consultants) are catching on,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your consultants. You ask the right questions....just don't listen ! Need more client service directors with books of business.
