    I worked at Adecco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice working environment. Work and life balance. Not alot of overtime if you finish you job on time. Office is very organize and tidy.

    Cons

    Too much gossip among management. If they don't like you, you will be screwed. They will treat you like dirt/scum. No raise or bonus for the tenure of your employment. Very miserable...

    Retain good employees

    Pros

    easy work, takes common sense. Nice big work atmosphere

    Cons

    If you are hired for seasonal, you most likely will only be paid 9.00/hr. Which at the end of your "assignment" EBay pays you 1.00 for evry hour you worked... however, they choose when your assignment ends, yet you will still be working for several months at 9.00 before EBay hires you...
    If policy changes, it may take several days/weeks before EVERYONE is aware- causing customer service to look like idiots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on board with eachother, the same day; advise your employees the same day

    Pros

    God for connections to other employers when your new to a city. To show your ability to perform your job.

    Cons

    No benefits! No time off for 3 years.
    If you take time off you will be replaced even if it is for bereavement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat them with respect, not disposable people. Vacation time . Sick time Time off to bury close family members without the fear of losing you job. Lower health insurance.

    I have been working at Adecco as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The staff at Adecco was always very helpful and professional. They always payed on time and there was never any problems with the hours worked or the salary.

    Cons

    I had no problems with Adecco. If you want a temporary or temp to hire contract, they are just as good as the best staffing agencies around.
