Many different assignments and management always looked to fulfill your desires in the industry you wanted to work in on a consulting basis. NY office was great. Moved to NC and haven't had much luck down this way!
RGP is an agency that leases employees to companies with a need for skillset. The work-life balance and culture is dependent on the client workplace where you are working. I have enjoyed both assignments and enjoy learning about different industries and business models.
I worked with RGP on and off for over 5 years. They are a great company to work for.....when you're working. They have fair pay and great benefits. Unfortunately, they don't have an aggressive or energetic plan for moving into non-accounting based areas of business. I'm a Supply Chain management professional. Over the 5 years, I had 4-5 assignments with huge gaps of time in between. There was always a plan but very little execution. The leadership team they had when I started was phenomenal. The leadership team now is not.

Excellent opportunity if you are looking to be a consultant who enjoys short term engagements with new businesses, projects and enjoys constant change.
It can be stressful if you are not placed on a new assignment before your current engagement ends.
It is difficult to be part of the workplace culture since you are out on assignments so you must be independent and reach out to employees throughout the globe who have similar experience. Attend company events/sessions. There are many. Local and on-line.
Management is changing and evolving in a positive direction.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Houston, Texas – June 22, 2017
I was able to work on a variety of assignments including financial reporting, systems implementations, implementations trouble shooting and changes in GAAP. The assignments were challenging and fulfilling, I was also able to work in various industries, including oil & gas, telecommunications and various utilities.
RGP offers a good service to clients. They hire great consultants to help solve complex client challenges. The local offices give you the ability to try out new processes and procedures to see what works best. Overall, a good place to work if you are producing results.

It is probably not a great situation for those who need certainty and are not adaptive. The compensation is good and for those that don't mind change and uncertainty, it is a good option. It is a great way to be exposed to many different industries and corporate cultures.

I started as a consultant on a 4 month project and ended up staying 6 years. They are very good to their consultants and great work/life balance at the option of the consultant. If you like to work alot...you can. If not...you can.
