Snr Finance Mngr/Controller, reports to CFO (Former Employee), Toronto,on – November 19, 2013
As a contract employee I up at different organizations every year or more often. However, my role is to go in and get up to speed within 1-2 weeks even if its an industry I have not worked in before. Its a challenge I like and have never had a problem as my wealth of experience provides a strong adaptable personality.
On a daily basis, I perform in – more... the given role, providing leadership, guidance or rolling up my sleeves as needed to get the job done. I am a problem solver and that soon shows...very soon...some one has an issue..they say...ask Andrew.
I learn new industries, meet new management ( and adapt to their individual styles) and meet new people all the time. Its great.
The hardest parts of these contracts is the initial 2 weeks getting up to speed but its a challenge work taking.
The most enjoyable part is meeting new people and the fun of learning how each new business operates. – less

Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TX – November 12, 2013
Pros: fexible hours.
Cons: no cons.
RGP was a great company to work for. I was there to do an assigned job and this is what was done. Once I was assigned my specific duties for the day, the those were done with little to no supervision since we were all mature adults that knew exactly what was to be done. The days were very pleasant and management was great. Management considered themselves – more... as employees and often stated that we were all equal, there to get the jobs done. Co-workers were great and we all worked as one team. When these things are done with most everyone having positive attitudes the job in itself is enjoyable. – less
Consultant (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – November 1, 2013
Pros: they pay you on time.
Cons: not a real consulting practice, management not very honest and non-supportive of employees, too much bench time while you have to wait for the magical pipeline to bear fruit
I've worked for RGP for a few years. Your coworkers are good people; your clients are good people; RGP management are not good people. Client Services directors play games with consultant rates and promised work coming "in the pipeline". It's consistent with what other reviews have said about RGP management at other locations.
Rates and benefits are – more... okay; nothing special; they work. However, every time a job comes up the Client Services directors will give you their scripted song and dance about how they just can't afford to pay you more.
My co-workers are all good people who strive to do their best for the clients. Unfortunately, you don't get any support from RGP. RGP has no methodologies for any of the work you do so you're on your own. At least the Big Four have developed methodologies so everyone can represent them consistently.
If you needed some interim dollars, RGP is okay. Not a good place long-term. Management is too greedy. – less

Internship as Recruiting Director Assistant (Former Employee), Dublin, D – July 30, 2013
Pros: best environment ever, office times
Cons: no cons
I used to help the recruiting director with the main tasks and at the same time I used to do some general administration. I have learned so many things that is hard to write them all. Management was great, and co-workers as well. We all had a great relationship, enjoyed sharing some treats and went a couple of time out for lunch together. The hardest – more... part of the job was getting use to things new to me, but that was actually one of the most interesting things as well. And the most enjoyable part was simply having such great colleagues. – less
