    I worked at Robert Half full-time

    Pros

    The company has a lot of "high achiever" types working there. They put a great deal of time into training and emphasise the importance of relationships.

    Cons

    They are very much a "work hard", "play hard" type environment. It may not suit people with a family. They are an old company that take a long time to move with technology. Have a coercive management style.
