    I worked at Spherion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Same as going to a circus

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately, 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.

    Pros

    The people that worked for SFN Group were the best.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    They are gone and the new company should think long and hard about using any part of their management culture.

    I have been working at Spherion

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what you empplyees out in the feild and branches are saying.

    I have been working at Spherion

    Pros

    I 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!

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, 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.
