    I worked at Adecco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have access to jobs that aren't posted publicly. Pay is weekly. I have to say they found work for me when I really needed it.

    Cons

    No communication from the office. They rarely call to find out how you are liking the job or if you would like to look for a change. Benefits are too costly and coverage poor. Office doesn't seem very supportive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk more to your people, most of us don't want to say anything because we need the work, and we feel like you are only working for the clients.Even if you are getting great reviews on your employee from the client, still talk to the employee, it may not be the job for them and they are just making the best of it. Remember your employees are just as important as your clients, you need to find the balance between the two.

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

    Pros

    This is a staffing agency, which can give you great potential to earn a paycheck while looking for a real job.

    Cons

    Don't expect them to care about you as a person...you are a number on a roster, that is it. They really could care less how long you stay with the company; they just need bodies to fill slots every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try making your employees feel like they mean something in the big picture. Nobody wants to feel like a number, hence why that is used as a punishment in prisons.

    Pros

    Finds you a job right away, if you are in need of one. If you are willing to work, they have something for you.

    Cons

    Pay is better working at a fast food joint! After taxes and all, you work 40+ hours a week, & still have to choose between paying rent or eating for the week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher pay, so employees wouldn't have to choose between paying rent, or eating would be nice
