Pros

great corporate atmosphere, people passionate about making money, people making serious amounts of money sitting next to you, great starting point into the corporate world

Cons

no work life balance, took 7 days off in over a year, job hours were basically 8am-8pm, had to go in on saturdays etc.

Advice to Management

send everyone to shadow an accounts team for a week, that way instead of just saying positions (management/financial accountant etc.) people will actual know what it entails

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone is a good producer, it does not make them a good manager. There needs to be management training programs in place. Perhaps they could make the job less robotic and tied to theory, and more creative.

    Pros

    Robert Half is a very stable company and for the most part treats their people pretty well. They do display some loyalty to their employees. HR has made some recent changes for the better. Marketing and field support seem to be good places to be.

    Cons

    In my experience, working in IT is a bit hit and miss. Some segments are treated pretty well. Applications for example get's a lot of support. Operations on the other hand is not well respected. Priorities seem to change frequently, guidance is very unclear, and micro-management is all over the place from the CIO on down.

    Advice to Management

    Lot's of advice. None of it suitable for public consumption.
