    I have been working at Robert Half full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They tell you upfront what is expected of you and what it takes to be successful. The job itself is very difficult and therefore there is a lot of turn over. Our branch level leadership is extremely supportive and understanding and they give you the tools and technology needed to be successful.

    Cons

    The only con is their maternity/parental leave policy. If you follow the metrics, act ethically and professionally and work hard, there really are no "cons". It's a tough job and a grind and lot of people cycle through that can't cut it. Sad, but true.
