    I have been working at Kelly IT Staffing Service full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Recruiters are friendly and had me working almost immediately in a job that I love. They do provide healthcare options and after 6 months holiday pay.

    Cons

    Overall, it depends on your contract. The only con I can think of is the possibility that a contract may end abruptly, but that is the nature of doing temp/contract work.

    Strong to start but weak ending. No follow up for next assignment.

    I have been working at Kelly IT Staffing Service as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have jobs you just have to get through their many layers.

    Cons

    They are not very good about following up with a "next" assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your assets are the people that you place in contract assignments. Reduce your advertisements to get people and improve your retention processes.

    Pros

    For a staffing firm they have many divisions that will you give you opportunities to grow your career. I would be happy to work for them again

    Cons

    Sometimes they have people in wrong positions, they don't understand the business or how to support the client

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so negative to new ideas, utilize the talent that you have to help grow your business

    I have been working at Kelly IT Staffing Service as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a job.

    Cons

    Poor attention to detail - drop the ball on all sorts of little things.
    Billing rate not shared with employee - usually a sign we are getting reamed.
    Very poor benefits package at a high cost - and we pay for all of it.
    Account/sales person not responsive, they forget you exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a decent health insurance package - cost isn't much more than the high deductable you have now.
    Pay attention to details.
    Pay attention to the people who bring in billable hours.
    Get rid of inattentive sales reps.

    Pros

    They took good care of me. Their disability came in handy and paid me for a year. They also have chairs, foot rests, document holders, whatever you need to accommodate the workstation.

    Cons

    A little lower pay then most.

    I worked at Kelly IT Staffing Service as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I liked the idea that they had a Kelly HR person on site at the contract I was on. The pay was pretty decent, too.

    Cons

    It was a contract position, so there were not any benefits. Work-life balance was ok, though.

    I have been working at Kelly IT Staffing Service full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with kids and teens is what I love to do. I enjoy teaching , helping and seeing everything I did help them in so many ways.

    Cons

    Meeting the students in the beginning of school. And seeing them at the end and seeing how much they have learned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management is the students. Helping them get there text scores up. Coming to work early and staying late. If that"s what it take to get the job done. It all about the students.

    Kelly is trying to be something it's not and dragging their employees along with them in their mid life crises.
