Pros

You won't be there very long, you will receive the benefits of the contracting company, but as a temp staffing agency, they won't work very hard to find you your next position.

Cons

Lots of red tape and paperwork, a ton of "do-s and don't-s" that are really just common sense and professional conduct. Strictly temporary placement that won't lead to anything else within the company.

Advice to Management

Streamline the hiring process for workers, and treat them like thinking adults. Spherion actually needs to hire more managers - one poor woman was managing 50+ seasonal hires where I was.

    Pros

    Career opportunity unmatched. Spherion has offices all over the country, and do a great job promoting from within. Great starting place for recruiters and account managers in the recruiting business.

    Cons

    Vast operation, there are so many different groups and organizations within Spherion, if you are not careful, you can get lost in the shuffle. You must keep your eyes and ears open for internal opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the management infrastructure, and streamline the services. No company is excellent in every area, but they can be great in a few areas.
