    Pros

    It is good work.. It is fulfilling to help people transition to better jobs and get a fresh starts.

    Cons

    Most of the employees are part time hourly. There are very few full time regular positions. The company is always working on cost cutting.

    Pros

    Flexibitity, promotion possibilities, good pay (mostly), generous vacation time, nice co-workers, great location

    Cons

    Manpower took over. Everything went downhill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manpower should have kept their hands off and let Right run themselves.

    I have been working at Right Management as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Right Management offers individuals looking to make a career change or find a better work life balance a role as a contract career management consultant assisting outplaced employees with job search support. The position is based out of the home and allows the individual to pick hours and weekly schedules that work best for them.

    Cons

    Hours per week are not guaranteed since available work is based on company contracts secured and there is the periodic risk of being put on "standby" until more contracts come in. However, if you're looking for a flexible 2nd career and have supplemental income, this is a great alternative.

    I have been working at Right Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are an admin.....management has tried hard to engage you. to boost record low scores. By inviting admin to the table and getting them in the know, engagement increased. Ask Right to slice the engagement scores by function. Delivery and Sales are clearly less engaged.

    Cons

    Sales and Delivery are not compensated fairly, Motivation is by fear. They have fired many members of both the management and delivery teams with NO SEVERANCE !!! Employees see this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start walking the talk. As an HR consulting company that preaches treating employees fairly and with respect......Right Management is the epitamy of hypocricy!!

    I have been working at Right Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Few amazing hard working NON Consultants that are dedicated and not recognized.

    Cons

    Employees are just another face. I've been with Right for 4 years and seen the whole Talent Management team fired or leave. They offer employees who are let go NOTHING after employee in most cases did nothing but work hard and fully dedicated to the success of the company. The leadership is horrific, they will dump you on the street and not look back. "Leadership" team is not qualified esp. Resource managers. BEWARE. NO human resource at RM Northeast. I've seen them nickel and dime clients and force dedicated qualified employees out the door. All politics, not based on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NELT- Start treating employees ESP your support with respect. In addition, you will loose all clients if you continue to nickel and dime employees and clients. START practicing what you preach to employees. Recognize success. START worrying about employee engagement.

    I have been working at Right Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I'm a low maintenance type. Tell me what needs to me done and my resources and budget and I'll always exceed expectations. My Director trusted my instincts and pretty much left me alone to do what needed to be accomplished.

    Cons

    After some seasoned people left the company, those left in charge of our region were unclear with their expectations, leading to poor morale with unrealistic client loads. Management led us to believe that they were looking for "younger" consultants. Hard to swallow when you're 38.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open communication when changes are in the air. We all know that change happens, especially when you're in the "change management" industry. If your consultants are cutting it - be straightforward and give them a chance to step up.
