I have been working at RGP full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

While assigned to an active client work engagement, compensation and benefits are a liitle above normal market offerings. The company encourages their consultants to go above and beyond the typical contactor work tasks and create a value-addedd relationship.

Mostly high-level, short to mid-term project type work.

Cons

Not a steady income - "no work = no pay" - be prepared for 2-3 months of "down-time" between working engagements.

Minimal reimbursement amount allocated for professional develpement and education. Almost enough to cover annual membership dues for one professional certification.

Advice to Management

If they truly value the talent they have recruited, they would financially try to buffer consultants "Down-time" and increase professional development stimuli - maybe during 'Down-time"..

    Pros

    Challenging projects that push me professionally.
    Exposure to a wide variety of industries and skill set requirements.
    The quality of the consultants on the projects.
    The quality of the clients.
    The opportunity to innovate in business processes.

    Cons

    Down time. If you don't have an internal champion, you can have significant gaps between projects.
    Identifying and retaining high quality local Managing Directors.

    Advice to Management

    Emerging and mid-sized companys should be a prime target market.
    Evaluate and priorities your quality employees. Keep them busy. Keep them as key resources.
    Consider using some of our best people on internal projects when they have downtime.
    Clearly communicate the differences between RGP and a staffing company.
