    Pros

    Excellent commission structure you see results for your hard work. RH invest in their employees and give you all the tools you need to be successful. A lot of opportunity to advance in the company and they really only promote within.

    Cons

    It's a challenging/competitive environment which is not for everyone.

    I worked at Robert Half Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My boss was a great guy. Very easy to work for.

    Cons

    Wasn't warned that they would yank my unused vacation time once the calendar year advanced.

    Advice to Management

    There is no law saying that you MUST NOT let people keep / roll over their vacation time. Only that you are allowed to. Why would you do that to your employees if you don't have to? I'd fix this.

    I worked at Robert Half Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health Benefits, coworkers, semi laid back environment

    Cons

    As an admin, you are not paid nearly enough. I was making cold calls, recruiting calls, updating recruiter's candidate matrices, training my team on new softwares & doing their expense reports for them (technically their job), following up with candidates & clients. No matter how hard you work or how good of an admin you are, you are allowed a MAXIMUM yearly raise of 5% which ends up being far less than a dollar per year.

    Advice to Management

    SOME offices and teams (mine included) treat their admin very well. My advice to corporate is to remove the cap on raises. Some admins work a lot harder & are asked to do more by their team than others.

    Pros

    I like receiving a weekly check

    Cons

    Management does not respond to employee's request in a timely manner

    Advice to Management

    Stay engaged with your employee's that are working on customer sites

    I worked at Robert Half Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good resources and decent training

    Cons

    Internally competitive. Activity numbers seem more important than quality of service.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many services and divisions competing for the attention of the client. Robert Half would benefit from journey mapping the customer's experience and considering account-based marketing and sales.

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

    Pros

    Tons of great, good looking people, working their tails off. Top technologies used, Surface Pros for ALL, upgraded to Salesforce in late 2016. Great benefits offered especially for a family, best in industry.

    Cons

    Churn and Burn mentality. Management pushes HARD to meet predicted financials, even if they have to fudge it and then amend it later...
    DD- Must bring in $25K / month in billing or you are kicked to the curb.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promising Wall Street the inflated numbers that cause such turmoil on the desk when they aren't met.

    Pros

    Good base pay, aggressive commission structure, fun environment.

    Cons

    Very numbers driven and if you don't perform, you wont be there longer than 3 months. Training can be slim. Turnover is extremely high.

    Pros

    Base pay is decent, as are benefits.

    Cons

    High Turnover. 70% turrnover in the 7 months I worked there. You have to interview unqualified candidates which someone else set up for you to meet.

    Advice to Management

    Your process is not working.
