    nothing, they helped me when I needed it most

    I have been working at Spherion

    Pros

    I'm speaking more about being an employee of Spherion than a candidate or temporary worker. It is a great company that cares a lot about all stakeholders. They are very concerned on maximizing technology and being on the cutting edge while also cognizant of getting buy-in before they move 100 mph in the wrong direction (i.e. they value feedback)

    Cons

    Not much. I think they run lean so people work hard, but I don't know if that is any different than most companies these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I was working a hectic queue in the call center work is draining. No opportunity for advancement. very difficult to get time off for vacations or families. But i have learned that is most call centers.

    Communicate more effectively and give opportunities to advance off of the phones.

    I worked at Spherion full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed going to work where my ideas and suggestions were appreciated. This business is a family owned business with support from a global company. Encouraged to "think out of the box" and act as an entrepreneur of your own business. Owner(s) and Area Manager supportive and challenge you never to find your comfort zone. Great motivators and truly lead by example.

    Cons

    Small office with limited staff. In our location, 3 employees to handle all aspects of the business. Often frustrating trying to grow the business but feeling like you did not have the resources to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the feedback of the individuals who work for you. Just listening to those that work for you is far more than most employers do these days. Don't stop challenging your staff to strive for excellence everyday; by doing so you allowed me to do things I never thought I was capable of doing.
