    Pros

    Aren't any pros to working for Adecco.

    The branches are Adecco's bread and butter.

    I have been working at Adecco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Adecco has great internal resources for those who are new to staffing. It's a great place to learn a lot about the industry. Branch Managers have P&L oversight and decision making authority for their branches.

    Cons

    From my experience, branches in remote areas do not receive a lot of support from upper management. The company is in the process of changing KPIs and sales productivity requirements so it's a frantic environment right now. Expectations and new targets change constantly along with management. In a year, I had three different RVPs with three sets of expectations. Rather than get help to meet your targets, you are simply penalized. Very frustrating most days, Also, there is no process in place to get help from management outside of your immediate supervisor. Basically, you are at the mercy of a single individual with no way of sharing concerns with anyone else. It has not been a very rewarding experience.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to insight from Branch Managers - especially those in remote locations and economically challenged communities. A "one size fits all" approach doesn't seem logical. A Branch Manager in a town of 30,000 will have a hard time hitting the same sales targets as a Branch Manager in a town of 300,000.

    Pros

    Our comp time is amazing; one will start with 18 days of PTO. The flexibility and freedom are great. The people I work with are awesome. The work we do every day, by providing people with jobs is very satisfying.

    Cons

    There is very little opportunity for advancement because people don't leave Adecco.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Don't hire VP's from the outside, as this is very discouraging for those of us who have been around for a long, long time and wish to be promoted.

    Pros

    Adecco offers the strength of name recognition and fantastic sales collateral. Benefits are ok and vast staffing knowledge is available to you.

    Cons

    Branches are understaffed. No consistent design from one office to the next. No diversity in management. This is a company for European American females. If you are a minority, look elsewhere. Middle management just wants yes people. They will use you up and scapegoat you to save their job.

    Advice to Management

    You need to promote talent and not looks. You lack diversity in your decision making group. Adecco in Michigan is completely out of touch with the needs of the local market. Diversity, Diversity Diversity!!

    Pros

    Adecco is a large organization that has a number of career tracks depending on your interest. One of the other great things is that you could potentially relocate to various places around the U.S. (and world for that matter) and still stay employed with the organization.

    Cons

    I never felt like the most Sr. Management was interested in the local markets. That's to say, in the two years that I worked for them, I did not once have leadership above the RVP level visit our local office. This, for me and the recruiters that worked for me, was a bit disappointing. The only other issue if you like feeling connected to the company you work for was that with such a large organization, people can get lost in the crowd. Local management was awesome, but in the big scheme of things, you knew that you were but a small entity on a large island.

    Advice to Management

    Touch the people on the battlefield more. They care and want to hear from you.
