Recruiter

Recruiter (Former Employee)
Remote, OR

I worked at Adecco full-time for more than a year

ProsGood opportunity to work in multiple industries, flexible location, full time

ConsI left for a better opportunity but saw many managers and colleagues being eliminated shortly after to save a buck. Replaced with entry level making 12 dollars an hour. They seem to be moving toward cheap inexperienced labor and it's resulting in losing contracts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Disappointing

Recruiter (Former Employee)

I worked at Adecco full-time for more than 8 years

ProsExcellent benefits - 18 days PTO when you start, 5 days bereavement, decent health insurance, dental and vision insurance too! Good home/work balance.

ConsNo growth potential, very corporate and upper management run. Branch managers are not given flexibility to run branches like their own business, despite being told to do so. Management does not listen to problems at the branch level, short staffed. Pay is not competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is important to listen to what the field employees are saying. Managers at all levels need to pay attention to their employees so that things do not need to be repeated numerous times. When there are problems in a branch they need to be addressed. Regional VP's have no problems putting their field staff down or working with them to grow and develop with the company. Branch managers should not be puppets to upper management. Pay employees competitive wages, what they are worth. Have opportunities for professional growth and promotions with the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

They suck especially if you are an experienced employee

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Adecco full-time for less than a year

ProsIts an income, but thats all. Great to be a contractor if you are young and just starting out in the workforce.

ConsBenefits are horrible. They do not allow for an increase in pay especially if you take on additional responsibilities. If your contract job is not working out, they will NOT help you move to another company. You are on your own.
