    Pros

    Good Company to work for with a decent salary and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are many unknowns in projects, but it does not have to be that way (at least not all the time). Most of the work is outsourced to other divisions as each division "owns" a piece of key technology.

    Advice to Management

    It could be a better experience for everyone if the management heeded the advice from Senior Engineers in technical matters instead of taking a pick and then pushing it on them.

    Pros

    Great people, high energy, and positive work environment. Hammer the phones, learn from your peers and leaders, and know how to handle situations out of your control. A very supportive work environment if you bought into the culture. You will learn how to sell, establish great relationships, and have some fun while your doing it

    Cons

    The grass is greener at other organizations and in other industries. The business is ruthless and you can lose your breadwinning account in a moments notice. Pay is well below average and it takes 3/4 years to find yourself in a under paying middle management role. Use the experiencew to grow as a sales rep and graduate to better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    None. Leadership team was fair, supportive, and insightful during my time.

    Pros

    Large company, room to change job positions easily within the same company.

    Cons

    As a full time associate with a double major in business administration and economics, I recurve $15.40/hr for being held accountable for all of the reporting for the second largest account in the company. Associates are severely underpaid for their dedication and effort.

    Advice to Management

    Management turns over Kelly Services employees at a high frequency. Management needs to acknowledge that technical understanding is the most important aspect of the business and talent must be retained.

    Pros

    The DBLs actually do remember your name and face and care about your personal situations.

    Cons

    The pay was above average but other spotters with less experience were started out with higher pay than me and would do way less work and would get rewarded with overtime. Come a year after working there instead of getting a raise that would put me up to par I was given the shaft.

    Advice to Management

    Give better pay raises, They were crap. .10/ hour raise after a year was laughable

    Pros

    Company website lists all job openings. Easy position transferring. Local jobs don't require years of seniority. Flexible schedule options.

    Cons

    Average pay and benefits, hometime and vacation as most major non union trucking companies.

    Advice to Management

    Re evaluate certain dedicated accounts that have high turnover. Raise pay! Stabilize schedules, increase hometime options.
