    Poor leadership, very poor internal communication and a poorly executed business transformation rollout. Avoid alignment

    Pros

    Good people in the individual contributor roles.
    Some impressive tenure throughout the U.S.

    Cons

    Leadership hires are have little to NO industry experience or knowledge.
    Manage by spreadsheet and pay no attention to issues, challenges or motivation/retention of current team.
    Very poor on the fulfillment side for clients.
    Over promise/Under deliver message constantly.
    Play favorites around tenure and cliques vs. promote on accomplishments and merit.
    Leadership skills are lacking in most at VP level and up.
    If you like micro-management, this is the place for you!
    Extremely poor internal communication and a high degree of spin control.
    Do not take ant individual contributor or management/director level advice, ideas or input.
    Way too many meetings for the sake of meetings, big time wasters.
    Business transformation was poorly developed and the rollout was worse.
    Manpower is struggling to gain market share, and will lose even more under the current leadership and organizational chart.
    Attempting to go from a service culture to a sales culture, however, they eliminated all of their sales leadership?!?
    Run, don't walk away from this organization...at best, check back in two years, after the dust has settled on this new look division of the ManpowerGroup.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote based upon internal relationships.
    Don't promote people that have poor communication skills, no leadership experience/skills and are not respected by any of their subordinates.
    Change the new matrix to give less power and control to the Market Vice President and add additional Directors or VPs to each Market.
    If you are trying to build a sales culture, then focus on attracting top sales leaders, not promoting operations personnel internally.
    Provide more attractive compensation at all levels.
    When someone needs to share insight or information internally, provide a non-biased, non-retaliatory avenue that can be trusted.
    Fix the fulfillment gap. Poor results equals no client retention on fulfillment.

    Pros

    - Good networking opportunities
    - Appreciate your old job a lot more

    Cons

    - Technology issues
    - Corporate unresponsive to Branch needs
    - Unrealistic expectations for job performance
    - Feel very "replaceable" - been told there are plenty of people who would take my job for less money
    - Candidates who just don't get it: We are not a placement agency! It's not my job to find you a job, it's my job to fill orders.

    Advice to Management

    Not like they would listen anyway :)
