    Pros

    Compensation is the biggest benefit. But, there's a lot more. The people are great, tremendous opportunity for advancement, pretty good autonomy although if you're looking for a place that is uber flexible where you don't have to work many hours...you're probably not a great fit for RH.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    I worked at Robert Half part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    While I worked as an intern in the corporate communication department I learned much about the ins and outs of the corporate writing world. Everyone was lovely and helpful while I adjusted to life in a corporation. Robert Half is a world-renowned corporation and it was wonderful getting to work for them.

    Cons

    Some of my time at Robert Half was not as productive as I would have liked it to be, sometimes it felt as though they only offered me busy work. And I heard that higher up management and positions are cutthroat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to ask for a self-evaluation from your intern as the internship comes to a close.

    Nice full-time benefits package. Paid weekly and great office support. Great online learning tools for full-time employees to help keep your knowledge current.

    In the rare event you are moving from one district to another you don't get much transitional support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    H.R. Offices from different states need to coordinate a bit better.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide range of businesses and operating practices
    Advancement opportunities for those who don't burn out
    Builds experience with hiring process from corporate angle, useful if you move on.

    Cons

    Company practices leave employees feeling burnt out very quickly
    Limited avenues for training or improvement of young staff
    Management was incentivized in regards to their own sales rather than team emprovement, lead to perception of unfair treatment amoung junior staff and administrators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate culture left offices feeling stuck and out of touch. Consider strengthening sales teams resources by offering further resources for highly skilled temporaries to improve loyalty to assignments and overall process.
