    Pros

    Manpower was a great place to work. All of the individuals I had contact with were very proffessional and will to help in anyway

    The Manpower office are wide open just cubics no way to have a private conversation. I was always looking for conference rooms.

    I worked at Manpower Professional as a contractor

    Pros

    Very professional
    Excellent hiring, on-boarding, and HR
    I worked with them multiple times and was pleased each time.

    Cons

    No problems with them. Minor items that were missed were fixed upon calling the correct person.
    Would like flexibility to work as corp-to-corp instead of 1099.
    Would prefer to be able to choose between having benefits or having additional pay instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did not need to have interactions with the C-level executives.

    Pros

    I was fortunate enough to manage a branch very close to my home, hence I was able go home for lunch and save money.

    Cons

    Management are only concerned with numbers/$$ to the bottom line.the way this company is structured, there's no room for growth once you hit Branch Manager status:your RD has to retire or resign first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your field staff the way you want your field offices to treat their customers.

    Pros

    Offers full range of benefits for purchase.
    Managers are flexible in time off requests.

    Cons

    No annual/COLA pay raises.
    No paid time off.
    Once placed on a specific contract it is difficult to apply for other opportunities within Manpower.
    Managers place client needs over employee needs.
    Hourly employees are not treated as professionals on my specific contract, morale is extremely low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in with your employees more often and try to see situations from our point of view without automatically doing whatever the client says.
