    I worked at Modis

    Pros

    Has the assets and scale to compete. Conducts business in an honest manner and has quite a few good people in locations across the US.

    Cons

    The company's growth trails leaders in their space. It is a big staffing company that acquired dozens of smaller companies to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is what happens in your offices every day, not what is posted on the walls.

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

    Pros

    The people at Modis are professional and great to work with for the most part. I am placed at a great client with very good pay and interesting work.

    Cons

    After having been placed on a contract I rarely hear from my supervisor. Occasionally I will see her in the building on her way to a meeting. There is a brief greeting and a promise to follow up but that has not happened.

    I have been working at Modis

    Pros

    Great co-workers and managing director. Admin staff is best in the company.

    Cons

    Increased metrics, less flexibility. Re-organization from the top down has increased frustration and decreased morale. It seems that there isn't time to do the job anymore with the metrics and increased training required every week.

    I have been working at Modis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission structure, if you get your job done they will not micromanage you.

    Cons

    FAVORITISM, POLITICS, and Sales Program is set up to cycle people in and out. They tell you there is little to no turnover during the interview process but there is a lot of turnover. Unrealistic expectation and ranked against senior employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the favoritism and treat people the same.

    Still holding onto some long time customers - not sure how long

    Going down a path where Modis is soon a forgotten name!!

    Unhappy clients as consultants are not happy to work for Modis
    Medical insurance is a joke
    Lost its place among top tier placement company after mergers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to re-structure and focus on bottom line!

    I worked at Modis

    Pros

    This company is growing and there will always be companies who are unable to look for employees on their own.

    Cons

    No one can get any work done because of all the politics. If you are not one of the "chosen few" you will be dumped on. Daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a class on how to communicate and bring in a trainer to discuss ethics with your staff.

    Pros

    Modis/Adecco are both solid companies.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was a joke at this location. In by 7:30am and not allowed to leave until 5:30pm. Oh, and lunches were frowned upon.
