    I worked at Manpower full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was fair, and received yearly raises. Work hard, and your hard work will pay off.

    Cons

    Working in an office with very few people and having to go out weekly and do door to door sales. On call with a client 24/7/365, which made work-life balance challenging. Due to few positions within the company personal growth was difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire sales people to do the sales and allow the Staffing Specialist to do just that....staff.

    I worked at Manpower

    Pros

    Great vacation credits for new and current employees

    Cons

    Too big to care about staff, customers, candidate and service. Rates are high. Not competitive in salary with other services

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the Human in Human Resources, stay fair in compensation, recognition and loyalty

    I have been working at Manpower

    Pros

    Staff is clueless. Treats you like crap when you don't follow through with guidance they didn't give you.

    Cons

    They can't find their butts with both hands and the management helping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself!

    I have been working at Manpower part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I started right away. It seemed like they wanted to get me to work as opposed to other companies that I never hear from again.

    Cons

    They gave a schedule, but the schedule I really worked didn't have the hours that were suggested.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more honest about the hours or coordinate better with the companies.

    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    This assignment is laid back. Management is easy going and the employees are respectful.

    Cons

    Being a temp limit the duties that a permanent person would be doing at this assignment. I might get 20 calls in a 9 hour day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't give advice, this company has there rule, but a person, like myself, goes to work to work.

    I worked at Manpower

    Pros

    Locations are appropriate for professional business.

    Cons

    Identity/branding issue due to mergers/acquisitions - Manpower - Comsys - Experis - MP Group...
    Promotions are not based on track record - very political environment.
    Leanings toward age/gender discrimination...if you're <35 you'll be provided more advancement opportunities.
    Executive leaders are engaged - local branch/regional leadership leaves a lot to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more career pathing with consistent objectives and less favoritism.

    Pros

    I worked for this company for nearly three years. I cannot think of any pros from working here.

    Cons

    Absolutely NO work/life balance is the least of the issues here. The management is horrible. None of them care at all about their employees.
