    Pros

    Great employee groups, plenty of opportunity to get involved, and regular one on one meetings with your manager. Company has a great vision and goals for what it would like to accomplish.

    Cons

    Some departments have strict rules regarding time management. Departments can be somewhat segregated, and exposure to new tasks can be limited. The culture is over-dependent on acronymns.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more growth and communication between departments. Offer more flexible job options, like we recommend to our clients. Stop using buzz words and set real goals.

    Pros

    They are a big company with years of know how...They insist on making sure their employees are educated and do not mind sending you where you need to go to get it. I loved that about them.

    Cons

    Its all about the client. They can care less about employees, contractors or anything else. They will fire you to make the client happy.

    Pros

    Good when you need quick employment, weekly pay, very nice employees, easy to work for and felxible with schedule. Easy employment process. A very good way to get your foot in the door with a company so that they might want to hire you in the future.

    Cons

    Most jobs are temporary, with more jobs being related to manual labor opposed to administrative. Pay start out on the low side.

    Pros

    The first account I worked on was great; however, I was asked to go help a new account and it has been an absolute nightmare. So, depending on the account and the manager, it can really affect your job.

    Cons

    I was asked to go help a new account and it has by far been the worst experience I've had at a job. In the first 8 weeks on the account, the account manager never once spoke with a single person on the team and was completely unresponsive to any emails/messages sent to her. After 8 weeks, many of us still did not have access to all of the systems we needed in order to do our job, even though we asked for help and updates every day. I tried speaking with HR about my concerns and they did not help at all, just said I needed to speak with my supervisor, who never once returned a single email sent to her regarding concerns.

    Advice to Management

    As a virtual employee, it was impossible to do a good job with a supervisor that was completely unresponsive and oblivious to the problems on the account. I would strongly suggest having regular team meetings when a new account is launched so that everyone is on the same page. I've never worked on an account before where there was no leadership or team meetings at all.

    Pros

    Awesome HQ building. I suppose it's size lends itself to more easily making lateral moves.

    Cons

    The last three years have been layoffs in critical areas like IT and HR but with they still expect everyone complete the same amount of work. I saw layoffs where the new VP didn't even know what people did before letting them go. Stress and instability is now the norm in many areas.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot outsource your way to profitibility.

    Pros

    Once you prove yourself, you are left to run things as you would your own business. Provides autonomy with national recognition. Reimbursement is good with potential to take trips as awards for top 3% of the company.

    Cons

    The environment can be stressful as in all staffing. Expectations are high for the Branch Manager to bring in sales as well as manage operations.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for dedicated, hard working, professionals. Amazing people and leaders. Strong vision and commitment to client-first services. Great place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Some roles can become "locked in" and your skills can not be fully utilized. If you are not vocal you may become "stuck" in your role.

    Advice to Management

    Proactively approach staff and discover their true ambitions and goals. There are many people who are working in roles well beyond their true capabilities. Make sure you adequately pay your employees. Inevitably, they will talk, and there are some discrepencies with compensation. Most people are there because they love their jobs, but they should also feel that they are being paid justly.
