    Pros

    Great colleague's and direct manager to work for. Working remote is great, decent benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to look at long term vision, as opposed to short term vision. Need to have proper forecasting for long term.

    Pros

    Good training and support at first.

    Cons

    Lots of disappointment from candidates and clients. The staffing industry is just brutal if you haven't been in it before. Managers expect the world from employees. Very hard to get lots of commission as they promise you should be getting. Base salary is low.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient with your employees if they are producing good candidates

    I have been working at ManpowerGroup full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture is great, we are able to hire great talent, but can’t keep them for a variety of reasons.

    Cons

    Systems are beyond archaic. Converted to 365 in an attempt to make life easier and it has only made things worse. Salaries are below what top firms pay, and the work is extreme. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Solutions that will lessen the workload on our recruiters. Many of them feel this job takes 7 days a week due to the extreme processes, it would be nice to see innovation and concern in offices that are crumbling to the ground.
