    Pros

    Good Teamwork, international opportunities, travel and good benefits

    Cons

    Divergent strategy that left Spherion ripe for takeover from Randstad. Very little focus in new technologies and still relying on the way things were done.

    Advice to Management

    Look around at other vendors and sell your company to a european company that specializes in what you do.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Great perks. Best job ever. People really enjoyed recruiting.

    Cons

    None. Would still be there if they weren't purchased by Randstad. Randstad culture is not the same.

    Advice to Management

    Great job with your original company. Wish you never sold it to Randstad.

    Spherion Staffing in Gulfport, Mississippi has the best staff. While I have only been sent on one assignment so far, I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with.

    Cons

    That they don't have anything available for me right now.
