    I have been working at Randstad Sourceright full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Virtual work, good pay, nice bonus structure based on personal performance, benefits are decent, variety of accounts to work for. The virtual work really allows for maximum productivity and performance.

    Cons

    New employee training could use some work. Sometimes transparency is an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share things with your front line employees; it's easier to understand why decisions are being made if you're more aware of the business case.

    Pros

    This organization has come through a roller coaster of changes the past five years, but out of that has evolved a tremendous place to work with incredibly smart people, community (despite being nearly 95% virtual), and an exciting future. Our training is extensive and challenging but drives the use of emerging techniques and technologies. The support provided by our internal talent team, the Center of Expertise, and our overall leadership provides both day-to-day support and strategic direction that sets us well above our competitiors. The majority of our compnay works from home, yet through technology, namely Google+ and other tools, we're able to maintain community, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and achievements. All in all, RSR is a great place to work.

    Cons

    This company can be very challenging, and definitely brings a work hard, play hard environment. As part of this, it's sometimes not for the faint of heart of one who requires constant management. In some cases this can affect work/life balance, at least temporarily. It's feast or famine, but sometimes extra commitment is expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an RPO company, sometimes account teams tend to stay rather constant. Both the company and our clients might benefit from a purposeful rotation to refresh account teams.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, effective work team, helpful co-workers

    Cons

    There is no systemic work structure or protocols. No training for new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train new employees before putting them to work so that individuals can be more effective to the work team. It is important for individuals to know what is expected to them and what their role is in an organization before being put on projects.

    I have been working at Randstad Sourceright full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Though acquired by 2nd largest global staffing company in 2010, RSR continues to operate as quick moving, agile mid size company driven to lead the RPO industry. If you have expertise to contribute, RSR will engage you to share, perform, and excel. They continue to invest in technologies and expert resources to staff their centers of expertise, have a very open and inclusive executive team, and exercise strong management principles. I continue to be impressed with the professionalism, open and humble team collaboration that occurs, and am very motivated to drive my own quality results in support of our overall goals. It's a great place to work and to develop your professional skills!

    Cons

    Virtual nature of work can stymie breadth of internal network and depth of internal relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in finding opportunities to bring virtual teams together through town meetings, regional events, and to drive tactical sales and solutions development proposals.

    Continue to focus on communicating paths for career development across all roles.

    Continue to invest in leading edge technology, methodologies, ideas, resources, and new delivery model concepts.

    Continue to challenge employees with opportunities to apply their creativeness, share their ideas, and deliver value to all aspects of driving a successful RPO business.

    I have been working at Randstad Sourceright as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work virtually. Ability to manage your day as you see fit. Ability to build your own relationships with your customers / hiring managers.

    Cons

    Working virtually long term leads you to feel isolated and not a part of the team. RSR tries to address with upbeat team meetings and occasional travel to meet as a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes hard to understand your place in the organization. Long-term goals are unclear - is my role here to get the client to renew their contract for another 3 years or make the best hire I can for my customer? Career opportunities are limited due to the nature of virtual environment.

    I have been working at Randstad Sourceright

    Pros

    The people! There is such a diverse group of people working here. I love that we hire professionals who can bring a fresh perspective to the job - it makes the day to day a lot more interesting too. On the flip side, Randstad really tries to take care of their employees, they seem committed to helping them further their careers. Plus, great job security. It might sound too good to be true for such a large company but it's true. I've found there are plenty of opportunities to advance (I personally have enjoyed two fairly major promotions in two years) or even move into a different role or department - which I've seen happen with a handful of colleagues. Definitely a work hard, play hard culture and you will never be bored. I also like the fact that I am able to work remotely (from home or while traveling) or I can go into a Randstad office since I'm based where some of our sister companies have phyiscal branches.

    Cons

    Workload can be overwhelming at times, but I'm fortunate enough to have somewhat flexible hours which makes a huge difference. Compensation may also be slighly lower than other industries, at least in my case, but as you progress in your career you start realizing that who you work for - and with - can make up for a gap in pay. What good is a few thousand dollars more every year if you're miserable when you go to work every single day??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the most part, keep doing what you're doing. Ideally it would be easier to engage with colleagues in the other Randstad companies but know it's a process. We grew very fast, so I think it's important to keep pursuing ways for employees to be able to share information and best practices efficiently across the company, no small feat I realize. But this will lead to more streamlined processes and overall improved efficiency which will ultimately allow us to provide better service for our clients and talent.

    I have been working at Randstad Sourceright full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Randstad Sourceright's global presence has allowed me to take on a "true" global role within the organization and given me the opportunity to help manage our RPO business in APAC and EMEA. With RPO business maturing more in these regions and also our growth in these regions, it has given me a unique and challenging opportunity in the organization.

    Cons

    As in any RPO setting, there is constant change and it is vital for employees to be able to adapt to changes internally and in the marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build on our internal mobility model and look to promote from within. This has been well received over the past year and is effective in keeping our top talent within the organization. Also to maintain focus with our global customers and continue to enhance our global delivery model.

    Work life balance, structured process, always offering innovative tools.

    Cons

    Salary is not in line with industry, they do not reward employees that have been with the organization a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on rewarding the employees that have been with the organization at length, instead of new employees being hired.

    I have been working at Randstad Sourceright full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked in the recruiting industry for well over a decade for several fortune 500 companies and diverse start-ups. By far, this has been the most rewarding experience in my career. In a relatively short period of time, I have been involved with some very challenging projects that have stretched me professionally. The people who work alongside me are very supportive with an acuity ranging from smart to genius. Not only am I given the resources I need to be successful in my role, I am encouraged to be creative and am recognized for jobs well done. Among the perks of my position is the occasional opportunity to travel globally which edifies me at work as well as personally. Furthermore, I am fortunate to be associated with a company that is involved with so many charitable initiatives, listens to the concerns of its workers (and factors those concerns when planning annual objectives, I may add) as well as offers health benefits that have been a boon to my family.

    Cons

    While it is certainly not a bad thing to give the best quality of service imaginable, it is often tempting to work non-stop; this is especially true when receiving emails after hours is a normal occurrence. Responding to email (or instant messages) after hours is not mandatory, so I suppose its more of a personal decision on how you manage your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see a stronger sense of community among the various operating companies. Randstad Sourceright is only part of a very large enterprise. However, despite its girth, it can feel more cozy with increased fellowship.
