    Pros

    You get access to go work for companies that you would never have heard of. You have the opportunity to work when you want to.

    Cons

    It is a Temporary employment agency, however, sometimes the temp jobs do turn permanent. Lower pay that some agencies

    I worked at Accountemps part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Always offering work. I was offered a job within a day of being with the company. Even when I quit to move out of state, I was contacted twice the next day with other schedulers who had not known yet that I had left.
    - It's a great resume booster because you are using and learning many skills.
    - Very flexible with scheduling. If you have to turn down a job here and there, there are plenty of people to take the job after you.
    - Great for college students with a flexible schedule. If you only have class in the evenings or a few days a week this works out really well.
    - You do not need a ton of accounting experience. I only had a little from college but they match you with people that can use you. Most of what I did was clerical but IN a finance office.

    Cons

    - Not really a con but just remember to respond quickly to an offer! If you don't respond soon enough, it will go to someone else.

    Pros

    The training is great. Especially if you take advantage of it.

    Your competition is fierce. The person sitting next to you can see everything you are doing, and can also steal it.

    Pros

    Great way to gain experience in different industries as an accountant. Great work/ life balance, benefits, as well as the opportunity to continue your education.

    Cons

    The only downside I see is that some clients treat the Salaried Professional as a temp, but that is not the fault of Accountemps.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps more mentorship, that's about it.
