    Pros

    Company has specific training guidelines presented when you first start. Bonus opportunities if you are in certain roles. Contests to win extra money if you are in the right role.

    Cons

    Training based on position, bonuses based on position, contests based on position. How you are treated is determined by local manager and company as a whole. Only sales people are valued and rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include ALL internal employees in bonus opportunities, employee engagement surveys, and opportunities to advance. Not just sales people.

    Pros

    Randstad's found a job, but the job was 40 miles away

    Cons

    Randstad's found a job that was 40 miles away, this created a travel expense that was not equal to the part-time salary that was being offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask that even through job placements are successful, please work with your agents to ensure that they are placed in positions that allow their personal advancement. Otherwise, the agent will not be satisfied and look for other opportunities.

    Pros

    Locations throughout the U.S. but that's all.

    Cons

    Flat Organization, NO Growth, NO Career Progression or Development, Deficient IT Systems with NO hope to change, Senior & Executive Management only care about Bottom Line (shocker) and awful Billing & Payroll support that make us look bad to our clients by making multiple mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please create development plans for your employees, promote those that deserve promotion, conduct exit Interviews when people leave to gather feedback and create better culture, metrics are key in staffing but push quality as well as quantity, separate Lines of Business for Year End metrics so all performers are judged equally, fix your IT internet issues and retrain ALL back office payroll/billing employees. Lastly, LISTEN to the feedback you request on employee surveys.
