    I have been working at Experis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice team, friendly environment. They are good for allowing flexible working - ie. if you have to work from home on occasion.

    Cons

    Advise to anyone looking to join Experis - Negotiate your salary as much as you can from the outset because once you're in it doesn't matter how well you're doing - they will NEVER increase your salary (even if you smash your goals year on year).

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all of your line managers start supporting employees career development. Its no good if career development initiatives come from the top, but your line managers on the ground fight to keep their employees from leaving their posts.

    Consider putting together an internal job board.

    Get an actual ATS system in place!! Having sourcers try to recruit candidates from scratch every time a new job comes in is a massive waste of everyones time and you are missing out because other agencies will have candidates ready to go right away while the sourcers here are still scrabbling around on LinkedIn.

    Consider annual pay increases for your employees - expecially if they are doing well and at least in line with inflation. The alternative is that your strongest people will continue to lose motivation and ultimately leave the business. I know this is something you've witnessed in the last couple of years so I hope you take note.

    Advice to Management

    Listen ot the people in the field and what they are saying. Not what you want to do to make the client pay more, or to service less.

    I have been working at Experis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization overall. Rigorous hiring process leads to low turnover and strong employees. Sales and Recruitment communicate well. No candidate ownership means more teamwork. Sales team shares and trades accounts, often help one another with introductions. Growing rapidly with new accounts. Great culture, work hard play hard attitude. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Rapid growth always leads to challenges with scaling. Disgruntled previous employee posted recent negative review not reflecting actual environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain core values and culture as the organization grows. Always be looking at new ways to incentivize and engage employees as you have done the last 2 years.
