    I worked at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    RHI provides pretty good benefits, salaries are decent and the commission structure if appropriate. There is room for growth and opportunity.

    Cons

    RHI is extremely corporate -- you are a cog in a wheel and you will feel that way. Everything is measured with metrics and, in order to move ahead, you really need to play the game.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management based on ability to lead and mentor, not based on their sales history. Good sales people should stay sales people -- give them more incentives in the sales area and promote good leaders instead.

    I worked at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    They found temp to hire positions quickly and were very supportive of my professional direction. Very positive group of recruiters.

    Cons

    Sometimes painted a more pretty picture of employers to get, in my opinion, candidates to take positions they were on the fence about.

    Advice to Management

    I would definitely recommend accounttemps to anyone with little experience that is looking to break in the accounting and finance industry.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fast-paced environment. You set your own work schedules.

    Cons

    Sales, sales, sales. If you don't hit your numbers, you're quickly shown the door. New hires aren't given a chance to develop, or provided property instruction to benefit the company.

    Advice to Management

    Employee development programs.

    I worked at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    Not much. Robert Half has an out-dated compensation structure for employees that are located in their temporary divisions.

    Cons

    A lot of in-house bickering. It feels as though you are fighting against your own team in order to start competing again your competitions.

    Advice to Management

    Please start worrying about your employees more and stockholders next instead of the other way around. It will pay off in the long run.
