I have been working at RGP as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Variety of assignments. Ability to preview companies you might consider working for directly. Focus is on accomplishing tasks, not becoming involved in office politics. Take assignments that truly fit your skills. Paid by the hour, and overtime is time and a half. We all work long hours, by in consulting, you are compensated for them.

Cons

Down time between assignments can be longer than desired. Some people in the client organization may feel threatened by the presence of a consultant - the "why does management think we need you" mind set. of course, insecure people are going to be insecure with their fellow employees as well.

Advice to Management

RGP is a great company to work for! They look for experienced talent, who want to work. No young college kids trying to figure out what they want to be when (if) they grow up.

    I worked at RGP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with great companies, high quality talent, great alternative to either consulting on your own or working with a temp firm. Offers flexibility and allows the consultant to pick and choose their assignmens

    Cons

    You need to be committed to the business model. There is no pay for time in between projects and depending on the office, you could be on the bench for a while.

    Advice to Management

    Offer several different employment options for consultants. Maybe higher hourly rate in lieu of medical benefits?

    I have been working at RGP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Variety of projects at good companies. Great work-life balance, most projects are 40 hrs per week. Really good for someone who doesn't need to rely on full time income.

    Cons

    Great if you are a self starter and independent - the client service directors who place you in the jobs rarely check in with you unless there is a problem. There is favoritism, you are more likely to be placed if you are in good with the client service directors. Not much opportunity for advancement. Often longer periods of time between projects than you'd like.
