    Pros

    RGP is a great place to work. The benefits are comparable to most large companies. They work hard to place the consultants on projects.

    Cons

    No work, no pay. Saving for down time or "other income" in necessary during downs in the market.

    Pros

    Interesting clients, nice co-consultants, flexibility. It's nice to have benefits.

    Pros

    Contract positions so you move from client to client which keeps it fresh. Someone else is following up on leads. If you want direct hire consulting you have to do the selling also. Pay is good wth overtime and you receive regular slate of employee benefits such as health, vacation and 401k match. Most engagements last much longer than originally planned. e.g. a 6 month contract may last 2 years. That would not be crazy. You are paid 1.5x for overtime hours. Jobs come fast. You can find out Thursday that on Monday your next gig starts. Great way to stay fresh and earn cash while you look for a permanent role. Sometimes your client may hire you as employee.

    Cons

    You only get paid when working on a client. You can find yourself out of work after an engagement ends for a few weeks. Sometimes there is no gap in assignments and sometimes there are. There are no bonuses. Each engagement the compensation can be different and must be negotiated by you. Overtime is key to the significant comp. 40 hours a week this pays in low $100's. If you can work 47-50 hours you can clear over $200,000 a year. But you have to consistently work 47-50 hours. If client restricts you to 40 you will make less than peers working 50 per week. Should get a commitment from client before engagement that 45 hours can be worked at a minimum. If you can get 47-50 commitment then great. What can happen is client sees invoice and sees 1.5x pay rate and after a few weeks they freak out and restrict hours. On expensive time sensitive engagements such as acquisition work this is not as much of a risk. Poll other consultants in office about pay rates if possible. It is critical to understand what rates are being paid so you know what to demand. I was paid $60/hour on some and $80 on another. The $80 was up to me because I knew the level of complexity and I could read that client was in a bind and not rate sensitive. You will never get paid for playing in golf outings here. If not working then no pay!

    I worked at RGP full-time

    Pros

    I worked not as a consultant but client service. they have some really marvelous people that are hired here, but never seem to keep them long.

    Cons

    The turnover rate internally is extremely high. People come in with very high hopes but quickly realize how antiquated the company is with no pay increases, mediocre bonuses, antiquated systems, no training and no performance management system. In short the company has no infrastructure and doesn't invest in its people. They want to grow but there is no way they can if they don't fix the major internal issues they have...which start at the top.

    Pros

    Very friendly people. Internal staff does not work on commission. Consultants work locally. Work is primarily managed locally not by corporate. Consultants have the freedom to solve problems as they see fit without adhering to an RGP methodology.

    Cons

    No pay increases for internal staff. Unpaid downtime for consultants. No performance reviews for consultants or internal staff. Antiquated systems.
