    Pros

    Great compensation, solid work/life balance, good PTO, decent benefits. The best thing about Robert Half is easily the people. Be a part of a motivated team of both sales folks and recruiters that all want to succeed because the bonus structure is great once you've got some tenure. Excellent support from upper management, who either work in your branch or frequently come onsite to local branches to assist with business/team development.

    Cons

    RH is definitely a numbers driven company, be prepared to put in the work early on and build a solid book of business. Management does hold you accountable to daily goals, but not at all a micro-management type of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Quick placement, job mobility, job match placement

    Cons

    For a temp placement, you can't ask for much, so aside from compensation I was quite happy with their services.

    The company supports innovation and hard/smart work, and it will become apparent if you do not possess those qualities.

    Pros

    Good resources for available jobs in every job location. Lots of knowledge on board in most of job categories.

    Cons

    They have lots of job available in different parts of the country but the cost of relocating can be very expensive. I think they need to add the cost of this to the overall cost of the job.

    Pros

    - Solid company with a lot of job stability - Solid reputation in market - Very good training programs - Room for advancement from day one - Open opportunities for both entry level and experienced recruiters

    Cons

    - Low starting pay - Very regimented - strict culture

    Advice to Management

    Depends on the management team as every office is run differently. My office in Portland ME was run by an amazing manager - Genevieve Straight who really cared about the office and team. Not much in the way of advice that I'd give her....except take a vacation once in awhile - you work too much!
