    Pros

    They have multiple clients in my field, and I feel comfortable that if my contract ends they can help me find a new opportunity with one of there existing clients.

    Cons

    None thus far... At this time I do not have any cons that comes to mind. My interaction with Manpower is extremely limited.

    Current Employee - Senior Recruiter- Virtual in Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at ManpowerGroup

    Pros

    opportunity to work in a virtual environment

    Cons

    Consistently pay lower than industry standards. RPO is always in fire-drill mode- no planning. I got tons of calls needing someone the same or next day. They think they are getting business because of their reputation- but they are underbidding the market. This company is a classic example of 'you get what you pay for'. They lack any sort of consultative approach with their clients- letting them call all the shots when they are supposed to be the experts! No planning means benched with no warning several times. Won't make that mistake again...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on your clients! Stop trying to be the low price leader. Your reputation within the recruiting community is costing you.

    I worked at ManpowerGroup

    Pros

    Manpower offered competitive benefits, fair compensation and opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    Things were constantly changing, and not always for good reasons. At one point, I has six managers within the same year, and I didn't change jobs; they just keep reorganizing my department! They regularly eliminate jobs at their global headquarters in Milwaukee. At least 350 jobs have been eliminated since 2008. Complete departments and divisions have been eliminated or outsourced. Really great employees with 10, 20 or even 30 years of experience have been cut with no notice at all!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and retain the good ones!

    Pros

    There are none. Finding work is slow. The recruiter don't answer there phone. Pay roll will forget to input your hours. Stay away

    Don't waste your time. Your better off looking at the green sheet or craigslist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people to actually do there job.

    Be honest. Pick a direction and stick with it long enough to know if it will make any difference.
