    I have been working at Adecco full-time

    Pros

    Depends largely on which company you are contracted out to. My experience has been positive, promoted many times over the past year. Work hard, look for ways to improve both yourself and the organization and your efforts will be recognized

    Cons

    lots of CYA rather than actual improvements and innovations. Difficult to be a change agent. Benefits are poor, no 401k matching, medical is also poor, benefits in general are not very good. Overall compensation isn't great either. Working for this company is a good way to gain experience and then find a new job as a salaried employee with greater long term potential.

    Advice to Management

    The largest issues with the company are ingrained in the staffing industry as a whole, company needs to be more flexible to allow for innovations and cost savings/ improvements to structure, in order to maximize their profitability.

    Pros

    Easy to get a job. They'll take almost anyone. Pay is good depending on contract. Temp work hiring process is quick and easy.

    Cons

    No benefits usually. Pay can be bad depending on contract. Reps from company who manager large numbers of contractors usually don't care and will take employers side.

    Advice to Management

    Don't really have any advice to give. Temp agency giving out temp work. Not much to say other than if managing a big project involving lots of contractors. Listen to them when they bring up issues

    I have been working at Adecco full-time

    Pros

    Just got in. The people are nice and patient. The working environment is clean and they have lockers for almost everybody.

    Cons

    The time is not good. I work from2:30 to 11:30 pm. Sometime I work overtime until 1:00 am. Not big fan.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work. They did a great work on getting me on-board. Although something not perfect happens, they still worked very hard on getting me started.

    I worked at Adecco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly coworkers, decent perks and benefits. I'd recommend it to others looking to work for Adecco

    Cons

    Poor management that plays favoritism. I was treating unfairly as one Recruiter got more than the others in the office. Long hours during certain times of the year

    I worked at Adecco part-time

    Pros

    First off the benefits where great, also you receive a descent amout of work hours per week. The warehouse offer access to the Nike factory, and the leads are very helpful.

    Cons

    The only con that they had was break time and the way they'll divide it up.
