    Pros

    Great flexibility, Good pay, great vacation policy

    Cons

    Externals (less qualified) are hired in more frequently full-time than current employees are promoted.
    If hired part-time, it is extremely difficult to get promoted to full-time - same work, less pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis should be placed on promoting within, especially high performers. This would improve loyalty.

    Pros

    You determine your own fate
    Work independently
    Empowered by management to make decisions
    Great no cost training
    Great work life balance

    Cons

    If you are seeking daily "Warm Fuzzy's" and weekly recognition from your manager this company may not be for you, however I have always been treated like a professional and management has always been receptive to my suggestions. I have worked here 7 yrs and have always had as much responsibility as I chose to take.

    There are some difficult customers, but there are some great customers as well, but I have never got the sense that my management did not back me up the whole way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing

    I worked at The Right Thing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Development and training, flexibility, tuition reimbursement and expertise in the RPO industry.

    Cons

    lack of upper mobility, promotions are very guarded and hours are often cut, due to the nature of the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and promote from within. Work on retention. The right has become a breeding ground for recruiters. RTI is a great company to get your feet wet with recruiting and the RPO industry. Their certifications are absolutely amazing and their onboarding process is like no other, but I think within two years, if you are ambitious enough, you should use that knowledge and seek better prospects.

    I have been working at The Right Thing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to work from home -- many people are remote and you do not feel left out because of it. Lots of good clients. Seems to be a stable company, especially now that it is owned by ADP. Many of the people are super nice and are very talented at what they do. You will learn a lot and will have great training available to you. It is good to work for a company that is so respected. People take pride in their work. It is a great place to work if you want a well paying job where you can work from home. Your job satisfaction will depend on what client you support. Some of the accounts are just less enjoyable than others. Plus, some managers are better than others. You might like your job so much and then see it change quickly. They really offer great service to clients and are very good at what they do.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is hard to maintain. Just when you get a handle on something, you are asked to take on more. Since being bought by ADP, the company lost its warmth and many of the perks. Before, the vacation policy, paid benefits, perks like a big Christmas party, prize giveaways, and summer hours were awesome. Now the vacation policy is very standard and it seems that every penny is closely managed. The "fun" is gone from the company and it feels like just a job now. They used to send weekly memos and praise people and tell you what is happening in the company. That has stopped. While there is a ton of training you can take, it can be hard to fit it in because you are so busy. Also, the sales people set up the contracts with so many expectations that it is almost impossible to every deliver what they promised. All of these cons do not over power the good things about working for The RightThing. It is just sad that so much changed when everything was just a happy, happy, joy, joy place before it was sold. It is still a good place to work, but these things just detract from that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put less emphasis on the NPS. Stop having people spend so much time on internal things and let them focus on the client. Give the teams enough resources to do their jobs so they can live up to what was sold. Stop over promising in the contracts and be honest.
