    I have been working at Abacus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The reputation as a large and well established staffing firm makes the community respect the associates and maintain a high expectation for performance. The strongest selling point is a supervisory team that is diligent and serious about maintaining the image and reputation, in addition to quality performance standards that associates are held to, which is a plus.

    Cons

    Most large companies have some element of details slipping through the cracks, and Abacus is no different. The only complaint I've heard comes from clients who want more personal attention. Small accounts with 1-3 placements don't necessarily get the red carpet treatment because of the amount of profit is very small in their business model. They are effective with large teams.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice is to separate the large volume staffing from the small volume staffing in order to service clientele both large and small.

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent job placements.

    Cons

    they discriminate very much. Long hours, hard work, Super hot or super cold work environment due to weather. The office reps think that they are the boss of everyone else, they treat you like you are dirt, they don't care if you have family issues or whatever the case may be that would cause you to be late for work or not be able to show up, one of them will bribe young girls working on site under him. Not a very good company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Get better staff and managers who know what theyre doing

    Pros

    Temporary assignments are best when you're not on permament status with the State Government.

    Cons

    A change to another location is a refreshing work-related experience. DOR had a nice facility on the southside of Atlanta, the snack room served good food during the lunch period, and the convenience of it was good.

    Advice to Management

    Inasmuch as there was little time to grow with Dept. of Revenue, Abacus Corp. kept me on their account for future jobs.
