    An amazing team. They really care about you. They strive for a work life balance. They truly care about their customers and employees

    Cons

    Your job consist of many other task that you really don't have time to do. It can get very stressful and the work load can get quite heavy.

    Advice to Management

    They really need an administrative person or Secretary at each branch. The recruiters should have ample time to recruit, interview, hire, and talk to customers.

    Pros

    Kelly Services is fast paced, motivated and competitive.The ability to move around and grow in the company is high and when moving into new departments or programs they always make sure to provide necessary training and make sure you have a complete understanding of your new position. I enjoy the company training on Kelly Girl Culture and Values, Safety and the additional(optional) training provided where I can learn more about the company, other departments within the company and the work Kelly does beyond Vendor Management. I have been with this company for two years and I have like a value to the company. Nice people, endless opportunities, extremely supportive Leadership Teams and an all around great industry to be in. In 8 months I learned 6 new tools and 6 different programs. And in my two years here I have been apart of 4 programs and assisted on 4 more and was given the opportunity to understand my position from a coordinator, central operations and specialist perspective. I don't see myself ever leaving this highly advanced and ever growing company.

    Cons

    There are not many cons that come to mind about my company. I would say that the only thing is that on some onsite programs, we are not always looked at as part of the team and the workspace isn't always the best, however that is beyond the control of Kelly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It is easy to work hard for a company and for people when you love what you do. :)

    Pros

    I love the culture at Kelly. Feels like a family owned business. They also really encourage professional growth through gaining experience in various different groups at Kelly.

    Cons

    Kelly is a very complex organization. You'd think staffing would be pretty straight forward - however, it is not.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaging with your staff. Help them feel like they are in the loop and try to 'de-crypt' some of leaderships messages.
