Pros

RGS is extremely supportive and good to their employees with regard to balancing work-life and family issues. I have never had a hard time taking personal time or managing my schedule in a manner that suited me. Management really cares about the employees and tries hard to make a personal connection with each employee -- and maintain that connection. The company has grown a lot in the last several years and transformed itself from a very technical firm to an IT firm to a true consultancy.

Cons

Middle management, ie the project/account managers are often undertrained and undermentored and do not do a good enough job providing meaningful feedback and challenging work to their teams. Many PMs "hog" tasks that could easily be distributed to other team members and do not do a good enough job giving their team members opportunities to shine.

Promotions, done on an individual basis, can often seem to favor certain people or certain managers over others. There is little to no transparency in the process and it can be hard to know where one stands.

Advice to Management

Train and mentor your middle management/PMs better and hold them accountable for results.
