    Pros

    Senior management is some of the best in the industry. Really know their stuff. They treat people right and want to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Training could be better, and the employee development (in terms of softer skills) has a ways to go, but this (and the parent company, Randstad), is a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see more dedication to developing employees and leaders, because it seemed that the managers consisted mostly of top salespeople, not necessarily individuals qualified to "lead" or even trained to manage adequately.

    Pros

    Pays fast until end client pays. No paycheck delays. I had a good experience with theirs hiring managers, professional and helpful.

    Cons

    This is a bear-bone low level company if you're a contracting through them. No benefits, or let me say, you-pay-in-ful-out-of-your-pocket benefits. They dont provide good pay rates either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you making a lot on a contractor, please provide at least a decent level of benefits, so people can stick with you.

    Pros

    Was a good first staffing job. The training by the manager was decent. The offices were great. The tech support guy was awesome.

    Cons

    unprofessional branch manager. too concerned with numbers and margins. And she played favorites in the office which caused animosity among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what is going on better in the branches. Don't just be concerned with the numbers.

    Pros

    Eqquitable salary, but management tends to be secretive.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems they will hire anybody, so often mentoring is required that can interfere with job responsibilitiues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making training and continuing education available would be a big plus.
