    Pros

    I've gotten a couple of assignments through Adecco and have been favorably impressed

    Cons

    Most of the jobs seem to be low-level, ie data entry, that sort of thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Jen Bohdel (sp) out of DE is awesome!

    I worked at Adecco as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many short to long term temp jobs for this client. Possibly may be a long term assignment for as long as one year or shorter. Client is known to be difficult to get hired into and this is one way to gain a temp job for them.

    Cons

    Poor training and a poorly, non-flexible, illogical work schedule that really does not support the client as well as it could and should. The same carrot is dangled in front of everyone one who is hired on to this cattle-call of an assignment: "You'll get to go perm" but don't believe it. This is, unfortuntately an all too typical situation these days in the still bad economy and the joblessness crisis that our Country is still in -- an assembly line of many bodies. Throw them at the walls and see who sticks! It's odd; go to the trouble to find good people and then hire them and train them and if there is any kind of glitch instead of working with them to make things work -- just get rid of them and replace them with another drone. Human capital is inhuman -- worker beware!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good workers and work with them to stay on the assignment.

    I worked at Adecco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    they found a position relatively easy

    Cons

    young hires were very unprofessional and played a lot but they seemed to keep their jobs and training was very unhelpful provided by the temps such as myself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give new temps more professional training than temps from the same agency as it was very unprofessional and they tend to be very rude and also unprofessional in training persons new to the position

    I have been working at Adecco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Adecco is full of clock watchers, so the pros are "No Overtime work"

    Cons

    Lack of career growth and poor compensation.

    Once pay is reasonable and fair, other things become important: recognition, respect, challenging work, opportunities for development… the feeling that a job is more than just a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See cons above, management skips over "providing a fair reasonable pay" and is willing to give recognition if it doesn't cost Adecco any money.

    I have been working at Adecco full-time (more than an 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.
