    Adecco- Lots of micro-managing and no room for growth.

    Pros

    I was hired through Adecco. They pay on time and every week. Some people are friendly. I'm lucky to have a nice department but there are individuals that ruin the nice experience. It's a good place to work if you can't find a job because they hire absolutely everyone. Of course, there are downsides to this as well. I would recommend this to a friend as a last resort but only that.

    Cons

    Low salary -- overworked and underpaid, no room for growth, corrupt inner-hiring system (people hire friends rather than who would do the job properly), talent is not recognized. Very frustrating when you are more intelligent than your boss. Many people at the Ewing office, at least, are not the brightest. Don't work here if you want to be challenged -- it's just repetitive busywork every day.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who would do the job properly, not just people who are your friends. Reward those who deserve it and terminate those that need to be fired.

    Pros

    The money is good for ex-teachers, who may have been making much less. The employees are wonderfully diverse. The Princeton "campus" is lovely, sporting a lake.

    Cons

    Developing test items can become tedious after several months, and especially toward the third year. As a non-profit, ETS doesn't naturally seek efficiency. This means that employees lack modern tools, and their work may be redundant because record-keeping and process are not... standardized.
