    Only time i heard from the recruiter was when i was getting laid off.

    I have been working at Adecco as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Since working for Adecco I have the best manager in the entire department. She allows me to do my job without standing over me, and she respects me as a professional.

    Also, my colleagues work together as a team and ultimately are the reason I come to work day after day. Overall, a good working environment.

    Cons

    Adecco is not a company for upward progressive employees. There is not a clear path for grow and if one does move upward it is a slow process to get there. You also must start as a contractor, without a clear path to becoming full time.

    They do not compensate their employees well, which causes high turnover. They also do not compensate individuals for making strides on their accounts.

    On top of this they act as if ordering office supplies is too expensive and expect employees to provide their own.
