      I worked at Russell Tobin

      Pros

      There are some really great people to work with at this company, you just need to find them and stick with them.

      Cons

      My biggest warning sign was when someone higher than me advised me to not submit a candidate to a client because they had not been employed for the past 6 months. Meanwhile this candidate had been caring for their terminally ill parent - not to mention the client then went and found this candidate themselves and interviewed them! Those higher than you are amazing at looking down upon you and being as rude as they possibly...

      Advice to Management

      Find someone to come in and conduct an evaluation. Find the things that are wrong within or RTA will never be as successful as it can be.

        I have been working at Russell Tobin full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        allows you to have some hands on experience at some of the major tech companies in the bay area which gives you an edge in the job market

        Cons

        They don't let you know when your contract will expire which can be rather nerve wrecking especially if you're financial situation at home is already pretty unstable; a not so uncommon trait in the current bay area economy.

          No opinion of CEO

          I have been working at Russell Tobin full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          - sometimes there are parties & some of the coworkers you meet are genuine (even though everyone I've met is miserable and wants to leave) - could have potential to be a half decent staffing firm if management got their act together - you'll be working with cool clients

          Cons

          MOST OF THE REVIEWS ON THIS SITE ARE WRITTEN BY CONTRACTORS WHO HAVE BEEN PLACED BY RTA, NOT BY ACTUAL RUSSELL TOBIN EMPLOYEES I worked at RTA a little under a year in San Francsico and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone - people are promoted to management based off of popularity, not merit - SF office is very un friendly and un welcoming - culture discourages asking questions, you are not allowed to ask questions...

            I have been working at Russell Tobin full-time

            Pros

            In the past decade or so, i have worked with several recruiters both as a candidate and a hiring manager. Some have been incredibly positive experiences, while others have been extremely disappointing. My experience working with Jessica has been the best of all, because she was thoughtful about what I wanted as a job seeker as well as representing the needs of the company I was interviewing with-it was clear that the...

            Pros

            Abby was responsive, patient and understanding. She had the perfect opportunity for me and facilitated all negotiations between me and her client -- now my employer, by the way! -- and was very supportive and mindful of my needs and desires for a new position. She conveyed all of this to my new employer and was able to get me everything I wanted, and then some! I have no hesitation in recommending her and Russell Tobin...
