Consultant (Current Employee) – Parsippany, NJ – January 26, 2017
I have enjoyed working at RGP for the broader industry background it has afforded me. I have been involved in projects and general accounting support in 3 different companies and 3 different industries.
Time between assignments is always a question mark
Finance and Supply Chain Consultant (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 23, 2017
There have been some slow times, but overall its a great place to work. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking to become a consultant. They have offices all over the country so getting projects in other locations is pretty common.
Consultant - Strategic Sourcing Vertical (Former Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – July 25, 2016
I was engaged on behalf of RPG for several clients. The primary engagement was for strategic sourcing for an aerospace holding company, which was having trouble with billed receivables. With a cashflow crunch, it became clear a couple of weeks into the project that RPG was not going to be paid timely, if at all (client payables were 120+ days out). While this should have raised a flag with RPG, the account manager (who'd landed the engagement) was too busy to follow up.
I succeeded with deliverables and handed off work over two weeks before leaving. While I'd been paid, I found RPG was not well-positioned to collect fees or successfully target client verticals (an observation I attribute to how client engagements are managed with account management). Still, I had a great time on the engagements and wish RPG well.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 15, 2016
Really enjoyed working for RGP in different assignments throughout Houston's Oil & Gas clients. I learned new contracting and purchasing techniques and how to deal with the variety of management styles.
Consultant (Contract) (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 30, 2016
RGP is an excellent company in providing value and talent to their clients. When you are on assignment, the company provides you with the support required and you work directly with the client. The only major issue with the position is that which is with most consulting firms is the issue of downtime, not on assignment. Unfortunately the company must staff to their highest need level, which means that there can be periods of no work, which can last a very short time or can last for long periods. Travel can be very heavy so if not a road warrior, this is not the company for you.
