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

    Pros

    It is like working for a permanent company since company provides all the benefits like PTO, 401K, Medical, Dental, and Vision, and online classes. All the client directors try to find the right fit for consultants and clients needs.

    Cons

    Downtime between projects but they do try to keep consultants busy if you have been with them for awhile.

    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.

    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"..

    Develop a more equitable compensation structure and reward employees and client service managers who bring in fresh business.
