    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

    Great opportunity for inexperienced.

    Freight Auditor (Former Employee) Roseville, CA

    ProsI worked at Spherion under contract to Agilent Technologies straight out of high school. It was a great temporary position where I learned a lot.

    ConsNot much to complain about really. The only downside was that at the time they were actively outsourcing out of the US and laying a lot of people off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage your employees and help them to take an active role in the success of the business. Even temporary contract employees have a lot to contribute.

    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.
