    Pros

    HTS is a global company with a good reputation. They are a stable employer that will not lay off workers unless absolutely necessary. They are good to employees, core and temps alike in their treatment. They work to accommodate their workers as much as possible while keeping their business goals. They provide good benefits to core employees.

    Cons

    Their wages tend to be low. Also, they take way too long to promote temps to core. We lost a lot of good employees because they got tired of waiting for core position so they can get the insurance and benefit package they do not enjoy with the temp service.

    Advice to Management

    The problem was not so much with the local management. Local managers would have loved to move their best temp workers to core before they lost them. Corporate HQ should allow more flexibility to local managers to promote the best temps to core.

    Pros

    Better salary than competitors Really good benefits (health insurance and 401K especially) compared with competitors in the same industry.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling when it comes to promotion. i.e. management positions are mostly occupied by people from the owner company in Japan. they come and go every 3 to 5 year as senior management (director, CEO, CFO, etc.) even though some of them don't even speak English. you will never be able to be promoted beyond general manager unless you bring tons of profit to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease the number of people from Japan who occupy important positions when there are fully competent local workers in US. they should be promoted more and given more opportunities to thrive. when they feel they cannot get any higher than a certain position, they will simply leave the company with his/her clients.
