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

    Pros

    Fair management and a great place to learn and go if you have the drive. Most people will take the time to answer your questions if they have a minute. Bonuses are team/office based meaning your contribution to the whole is more important than a personal one.

    Cons

    Intense sales atmosphere can be intimidating to some, some managers can be direct to a fault, but it's not common. Change of title and promotions can be incredibly slow.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to promote growth within the firm by creating training for Client Service and Recruiting that has some sort of actual structure to it.

    Pros

    Good Pay different clients. Rate is very negotiable if you have niche skillsets. They pay you overtime 1.5x as well

    Cons

    Will be out of job unless new project is given. Sometime you can be under employed, less than 40hrs a day. Vacations accrue slow at first

    Advice to Management

    Keep the clients coming so that workflow for consultants are now reduced.

    I worked at RGP full-time

    Pros

    Paid fairly and did not pigeon hole you to what your resume says. Open to the idea that you can provide additional value and figure out what's necessary. It's a contract gig and you just need to be comfortable with that.

    Their benefits were good!

    Cons

    It's a contract gig. You need to make yourself valuable to the client. Job today doesn't guarantee a job tomorrow.

    Great company and staff, interesting engagements for great organizations. Opportunity to use your skills without making a commitment. Some benefits available, including healthcare option
