    I worked at Kelly Services full-time

    Pros

    Organized staff, available to answer questions you may have about your assignment. They pay every week which is very convenient

    Cons

    The jobs with Kelly Services are short term. I was hired for a five month project and then had to start the job search all over again

    Advice to Management

    Try to find permanent positions to those who are reliable, hard working and give all their effort while at work.

    Pros

    Really wonderful communication. Management is very good, thorough, direct, easy to reach.

    Cons

    I didn't experience any real cons while working for Kelly Services.

    Advice to Management

    I think continuing the open lines of communication, my favorite part of my experience with Kelly was the communication I had with my Manager.

    Pros

    Everyone is very open, it is expected to reach out to other cities to ask what their best practices are and in turn, share yours.

    Cons

    The health benefits aren't very good and the salaries seem to be on the low side. Also, offices run very lean so the workload can be too much sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money.

    Pros

    fast paced company with quick movement through the ranks as long as you are dedicated and willing to take on extra projects and work

    Cons

    pay is not that high and requires a few years of loyalty before you are able to feel the quick bumps in pay

    Advice to Management

    manage with a light hand because micro managing seems to be the running theme through the company and is not the best approach.
