    I worked at Randstad US full-time

    Pros

    Good for sales driven individuals. Maybe if you value drinking and socializing and ego stroking more than work. Good training programs.

    Cons

    Expectations are high, terrible compensation, you're nothing but a number. Very political workplace. No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more, stop restructuring every 6 months. Stop with the favoritism.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Randstad US full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good for short term work. Would recommend working for them for up to 5 years. Comforting and relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Easy to get "lost in the mix". No real opportunities to climb up in the company, you stay in your given role.

    Advice to Management

    Should spend more time liberalizing the work environment. Trying to accommodate for the needs of every single employee with policies that are not valued too highly
