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

    Pros

    They have found me multiple jobs. After about a year of working for them I am getting paid holidays.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. It would be nice if I was given sick days instead of having to show up to work sick just so I don't risk losing my assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to offer paid vacation/sick time.

    Pros

    The jobs are easy to get so if you have no work experience it is easy to find a job. They have many different positions available based on skills.

    Cons

    Even after working for years full time you are still considered a temp, promotions are based on headcount so after being promoted you will be demoted considering the jobs a seasonal, pay is low compared to other companies with similar conditions. Your schedule will change constantly.

    I have been working at Adecco

    Pros

    Somehow Adecco managed to score a great contract from Roche Medical. There was a lot of work available for them to assign.

    Cons

    Very disorganized. Distributing training material at the last moment, requiring redundant information from their field employees, not having accountable admins to help me out. Changed rules for compensation mid-contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead.

    Pros

    Very resourceful in knowing what's out there in my job field. They work with you to understand you so when a job becomes available they will know you are a good fit. They offer training to keep you up to date.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, at this time there is no work available for me or the "good fit" didn't seem feasible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Eventually, it will be a win-win for all of us.

    I worked at Adecco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people. The recruiters are well trained and eager to succeed. The Branch Managers are also well trained and intelligent, and although the branches are spread out, you feel very connected to your company tthrough tele conferences and mentoring.

    Cons

    The upper leadership has become so disconnected from the day to day activities of the industry that it can challenging to get the support necessary to be competitive while meeting the KPI's for each position. There are times when the entire branch activities are focused on meeting metrics and not necessarily on the bottom line, which is delivering the best talent to the clients and/or gaining new clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every mid to upper level manager should take a week a quarter recruiting and selling to ensure they understand the market and the potential obstacles their teams face each day.
