    Pros

    The best reasons for working here to me would be that i would have the ability to communicate and socialize with other, being that i love working with the public, also to be able to just be apart of the team..... TEAM PLAYER! that's me.

    The only thing that i would consider a challenge with working here would be that the hours, but i can learn to live with that.

    I worked at Randstad as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to work steady for 3.5 years on an assignment.

    Cons

    When I came to the end of my assignment, management pretended that they did not know it was ending. NO salary increase and no bonus as I was informed when the assignment ended. Also, they do not offer any vacation after you work for a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people first and consider how much you lose out when you treat good talent like they are dispensable.

    I worked at Randstad full-time

    Pros

    It was a great opportunity to merge two successful companies and grow.

    Cons

    The employees of Spherion were overlooked for management positions and treated very badly by the incoming Randstad teams. There was not team playing happening and no respect show to those who had more experience, knowledge and success than some of the incoming teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what is really happening in the field and who you have managing. Just because they have been there a long time and have relationships with upper management does not make them the best person to move the company forward.
