    Pros

    You get paid weekly. They find you employment fast. The company actually trains you. You can put the experience in your resume. They pay for training.

    Cons

    It’s a temp job with limited chances of going perm. But you actually know that from beginning. Don’t have high expectations of getting the position as perm. Enjoy the time; that’s all!

    Advice to Management

    Stay awesome!

    I worked at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    Great managers at the SF Office

    Cons

    Culture seems a little apathetic; everyone except managers leave exactly at 5:00pm and seem excited to leave. A lot of gossip around office. Bonus is difficult to attain even for top performers.

    I worked at Robert Half full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Ability to move up within the company
    - Supportive team members

    Cons

    - A ton of politics and favoritism shown. The same rule does not apply for all members of the company
    - Cutthroat environment
    - Revolving door

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat an employee badly because they slipped up on sales for the month. This is definitely reflective of the environment and leadership versus the employee, especially when the employee typically produces. Get leadership that doesn't treat people horribly, pit divisions against each-other or talk about team members behind their back. This breeds a culture of immaturity. Look into getting better management.
