    Pros

    Hard to think of any.......

    The only good think is location and marketing material are very good.

    Cons

    If you are thinking of accepting the offer... please read the review first, as the interview process seems really professional and they promise the world to you. Remember you are being interviewed by sales people... and they are selling you the job.
    First of all, they have the highest turnover. Every month there where about 2-6 people quitting the job. The other people are working just because they can not find a better job and need to pay their bills.

    -Expect to work very long hours, absolutely no life/work balance
    - The most micromanaging environment ever (everything has metrics, which are more important then results)
    - You have to give reports thee times a week, and if you haven't met you metrics they make your life miserable

    - Staffing consultants run a 360 desk, where you both sell and recruit. You are usually assigned tiny territories and have to work your manage, you can only sell core business, so if you get other orders you have to pass them to a different division with absolutely no benefits.

    - Very high pressure and stressful environment.

    If you are thinking of joining staffing industry, go to a competitor because you will hate your life if you join Randstad.....( I wish I was exaggerating).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at you high turn over rate and do exit interviews to understand why people are always living.

    Interview Details

    The process was not so lengthy as much as the recruiter who was not providing feedback. I had to hunt the recruiter each and every time. A follow up thank you note was send to the recruiter to send to the HM , There was not feedback on it it. There was also not interview feedback.

    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation was quite well. They stood to what they had locked me down for
