    I have been working at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    I'm sure not every team within RH is the same, but I got an amazing team that really works together and cares about each other, which makes a big difference. Also, the bonus pay outs are absolutely ridiculous. People on my team make $200k/year easy with only 2-3 years of experience. They offer amazing training and opportunities for advancement. It's also nice to be with an ethical company- we don't screw anyone over and we genuinely help both candidates and clients, unlike a lot of staffing agencies.

    Cons

    This is not a job for everyone. It takes a certain kind of personality- you have to be willing to put in the work and handle rejection and set backs well. It's not easy, but the rewards are more than worth the hard work, in my opinion.

    Pros

    Lots of education/training, work hard/play harder culture, lots of rewards/recognition,

    Cons

    RH is a classic, competitive, sales-driven organization. If you aren't prepared to work yourself into an early grave, you'll find the environment intimidating and management only somewhat sympathetic. In a nutshell:

    - The hours are long
    - The expectations are high
    - Low base (culture rewards performance)
    - Your reputation in the market may be damaged due to your predecessors
    - Bigger branches are cutthroat environments
    - You'll quickly see why so many people hate staffing and RH in particular: it moves fast and rewards winning.

    Advice to Management

    Spend as much time training how to recruit as you do on how to market

    Pros

    Genuinely feel like you have a team of people working for you that care about your future career

    Cons

    Once you are placed, there is far less communication. Also, if the company you are placed with is not a good fit, they can not work with you until the end of the contract.
