Robert Half International: America's Most Admired Companies list by Fortune magazine-NOT!!
I have worked for Robert Half International and consider it a company that is far from being "One of America's Most Favored Companies". I guess it depends on what you are looking at. Forbes, obviously doesn't see the whole picture.
For a public company that is in the people business, it does a horrible job at managing and treating it's own people well. Essentially, it is a chop shop that trys to find good talent, then eats them up and spits them out. In the year that I spent with the technology group, 11 employees were hired and then left or were fired in my Line-of-Business in my office alone!!
If analyst want the real story, they should talk to the employees, not the filtered senior management.
My estimate is that the Management Resource Line of Business and the Protiviti Division will loose money. Protiviti is already on a downward spiral as is Management Resource Line of Business. The Technology Arm will not grow for two reasons: The business model is wrong, by the way it is different than any other line of business, and there is stronger, more competent players in the industry.
