    I have been working at Adecco full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work with the largest staffing agency in the US and the world. This affords many positive opportunities. Solid organization which has done a nice job of cutting out the red tape. Organization is committed to their employees from a training and development perspective, in partcular Recruiters, on-sites and branch managers.

    Cons

    The company is going the wrong direction!!! Very apparent to see the organization, which once had a nice balance, is now ONLY about finding a way to making more money!!! Some examples are the closing of the Melville location, not replacing individuals in key positions/segments and making foolish career decisions on solid producers. The company values of cool head, warm heart and working hands needs to be replaced with GROW THE RETURN ON SALES OR ELSE!! Senior leadership is running scared!!! Lastly salaries for branch staff is excessively low!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Profit is highly important and necessary but dragging bodies behind to accomplish it at all costs is not what made Adecco the largest in the world

    Pros

    There are best reason if your Hispanic then your good, any other race they lie an do unnecessary things to hardworking individuals that makes it hard to get a true review.

    Cons

    The challenges are the lies and the dishonesty they give African Americans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys need to stop the hate crimes because it will determine your future and karma is an existing factor.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work in multiple industries, flexible location, full time

    Cons

    I left for a better opportunity but saw many managers and colleagues being eliminated shortly after to save a buck. Replaced with entry level making 12 dollars an hour. They seem to be moving toward cheap inexperienced labor and it's resulting in losing contracts.
