    Working with largest accumulation of Bipolar people.

    Recruiting Manager (Former Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsSame as going to a circus

    ConsManagement is awarded for acting like a seven year old with a temper tantrum. HR does nothing about it and nobody cares. Directors think they are slave masters with whips and drive you against impossible odds. "What do you mean you can't fill 115 positions in 3 weeks? Do something!" Waaay too many morons with a VP or Director title that should seriously get their head checked. Any other company, you would just be called a manager. Sexual harassment flying around like an airborne disease.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunately, I worked with the bulk of the bad ones. My advice is only to them.... Seek mental health treatment. There is no shame in it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Used to be good now it is just money driven

    Purchasing Specialist (Current Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsA good experience & well-known name for your resume. The people were the best part. Good environment to connect with your peers and grow.

    ConsVery political. No internal stability - a lot of change manangement. No clear communications of reporting structures and requirements. Too many blurred lines.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very Poor Management

    IT Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsThe people that worked for SFN Group were the best.

    ConsManagement was one of the worst I have ever seen in all my life the company sold far below it true value and the upper management walked away with millions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are gone and the new company should think long and hard about using any part of their management culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Thankless organization that doesn't support you and expects you to work 60 hours a week.

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsThe company health benefits are very good. Spherion is a a large well known name in the industry. Most companies know who you are and it can open doors in the sales area for someone.

    ConsAs a branch manager working with 7 employees, I saw no concern for our employees of which I felt the company considered expendable. The compnay also promised a speical bonus if certan goals were obtained which my office met. Sperion reneged on the bonus without a satisfactory explaination. A company where you will not be rewarded for your loyalty or efforts

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to what you empplyees out in the feild and branches are saying.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Spherion's a great company to work for!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsI am a recent college graduate that was hired this summer into an entry level position. Since joining the company I have had the opportunity gain first-hand experience and grow within the company. All of the employees and supervisors have been really nice and helpful. I even had the chance to meet Roy, the CEO and he was very friendly, approachable, and genuinely interested in the work I was doing for the company. I would wholeheartedly recommend working for this company!

    ConsSpherion has a very traditional work environment that may not be suited to all workers. It is also hard to find parking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, Spherion is a great company to work for and they offer many opportunities to advance within the company. I would recommend salary increases based on our annual reviews.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
