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

    Pros

    Fair salary, good teamwork within groups but not necessarily across groups. Good charity support and outreach outside the organization.

    Cons

    Pace of change is slow. Growth in groups seems somewhat stagnant. Many managers across different groups very comfortable with business as usual, not the most exciting environment.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more cross training between IT Teams. Structure is good but there is a lack of teamwork and visibility into other team's goals and how the help the overall teams.
