    Pros

    The recruiter I worked with was very friendly and worked closely with me to find a company that would be a great match. She responded to emails in a acceptable time and always answered my questions.

    Cons

    If you are a temp do not sign up for the health insurance. It seems like a great idea but the company will pay the bare minimum for ER visits and when you call corporate they mock you for signing up for it.

    Pros

    They provide vast resources to be competitive in a tough market. Management of the branch I work in along with the region is very supportive, open-minded, and appreciative. There is a lot of opportunity to be successful but it does take a lot of work and determination. Training is good, if you enjoy sales or look to purse sales as a career, Randstad is a great company to get experience and get comfortable with your own skill set when dealing with clients.

    Cons

    Depending on the branch & manager, things could be great and the team works together or very hard with every man/women for themselves (so I've heard). It is sales & recruiting, high turnover is expected, so the industry and job is not for those who have minimal drive, assertion, and aggressiveness to succeed in a competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    More do-diligence in hiring to limit turnover for recent grads.

    Pros

    Open communication at all levels Corporate investment in marketing, branding, etc. Competitive compensation package Reasonable activity/production expectations Flexible pricing for clients Easy to establish/approve contracts Culture demonstrates caring and appreciation for employees Encourages new ideas and feedback - conducts employee surveys often

    Cons

    No good cross-selling "system" or reward for working with sister divisions

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits - lower copays Need for more broad market branding - radio ads, billboards, etc.

    Pros

    They have contests throughout the year for you to be able to earn a few extra days off or Amex gift cards. Usually hours are flexible

    Cons

    Monitor all calls. Office communication is bad and there is not much stress put on teamwork so everyone is just looking out for themselves.

    Pros

    At Randstad Finance and Accounting I work with some of the most talented individuals in the industry. Management is transparent and consistently demonstrate a "people oriented" approach to leading the business. Randstad offers a career, not just a job. Training, development and opportunities are abundant. For new hires without industry experience, Randstad offers a "best in class" training program that has proven to provide the skills required for success. If a veteran Recruiter is considering employment, Randstad offers an amazing culture where producers can thrive. Above all, the values of the organization are what sets them apart. The CEO, Dan Foley was the March of Dimes Man of the Year and he is committed to making our organization the most charitable in the staffing industry. The company is committed to a culture where staff at all levels contribute to doing good in their communities. It's a company where you can work, make a good living, and feel proud of the organization you work for. That's why I'll continue to invest my career with Randstad!

    Cons

    The company is rapidly growing and they have recently made a large acquisition. In the short term, people considering employment will need to understand that not every system will be in place and many procedures will be changing. We need bright, flexible and talented individuals who are comfortable working in fast moving and rapidly changing environments.
