Metricized to Oblivion

Technical Recruiter (Current Employee)

ProsDecent base pay and system tools to complete the job.

ConsNot being able to do your job without a few gorillas on your back. The sheriff is always in town and has the management skills of a flashlight cop.
There is no pride in quality of work but a race to put up arbitrary numbers. We must keep feeding the pipe of people to jobs in 48 hours or else heads will roll.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet recruiters have a personality, pride, and better compensation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    IT Specialist (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    I worked at Manpower full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: The headquarters building in downtown Milwaukee is a nice place to… Cons: A company starting to spiral...mass layoffs over the last year, particularly in IT (most IT work now in the process of being offshored).
