    Pros

    Reliable employment agency with good connections and job opportunities in a variety of industry.

    Cons

    Does not keep former employees apprised of new opportunities for training, of job change for them to take advantage of especially when they move out of state.

    Advice to Management

    send e-mails employees to inform them of new opportunities and what to do when out of state so they don't have to start from scratch.

    I worked at Adecco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with schedules, great people and lifetime friendships formed, fun and fast paced environment, always something to learn

    Cons

    As organizational changes came, moral was severely damaged and no one seemed to care, became very numbers focused and forgot about the people.

    Advice to Management

    Check ego at the door and don't forget those who got you where you are

    Pros

    I liked working with the temporary staff and the businesses. There was excellent opportunity for training.

    Cons

    They would offer higher salaries, etc. to the people who weren't carrying their weight to keep from getting sued from firing people. I worked twice as hard and was training everyone only to find out I make $5K less than everyone else despite being the only Recruiter with a college degree.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your workers and listen to red flags when hiring people.

    Stop promoting people that do not know what they are doing
