    I worked at Manpower as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They can get you a job right away into a company and have all the right connections. Staff are friendly and know the system of finding the best fit within a company which best suits the employee.

    Cons

    They collect plenty of overhead and are mostly concerned with keeping ties to the company they are contracting for rather than benefitting the well being of an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better trained staff who truly care about the contractors they hire rather than making it a slave trade for people.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clients themselves are terrific but......

    Cons

    Employees are treated poorly by company itself. No yearly reviews or salary raises. Cut hours many years ago, won't return to previous schedule. Benefits way too expensive for number of Manpower employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and reward frequently. Employees are the face of the company. If they're unhappy, client will be unhappy.
