    Pros

    Upper Management is very competent. Very rarely are you micro-managed and management gives you the tools needed to succeed. A good company for an entry-level worker.

    Cons

    Time-off policies need to be adjusted for the benefit of non-exempt employees. Salaries are extremely low for the workload some are expected to carry.

    Advice to Management

    Do not forget to reward hard work even at smaller Sites. Hard work should be acknowledged for all who put in the time regardless of Location.

    I worked at Die Schweizerische Post full-time

    Pros

    Very nice office in San Francisco.

    Cons

    Offered a permanent job after being told they were replacing an Admin/ Receptionist that wasn't working out. Then they got cold feet and didn't fire the person, so, it turned into a "Backup"position to fill in for the person that was suppose to be let go. After this, they had me training with...the gal who was not working out and suppose to be gone before my start date. That was the final straw for me. The story kept changing daily with lies and vague answers to questions. This, plus Swiss Post losing hiring paperwork, poor follow-through, being unwilling to pay what the Employee are worth. A nightmare. One minute you have a job, then you don't. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and start paying realistic salaries.

    Pros

    Checks are given weekly and anyone can get a job here. This gives an opportunity for individuals who don't possess a high school diploma or finishing college. In short, it's an interim job. If you're a reasonably good employee or if the client likes you, you may receive recognition.

    Cons

    Staffers are paid way below market, doesn't support their employees, laughable employee benefits and even more laughable PTOs. Job growth doesn't necessarily mean pay increase. Most will stagnate and become disenchanted. Morale is low because staffers aren't treated fairly and only caters to the client's political system within their office(s). Nepotism is prevalent here. Management is directionless, lacks back-bone, very 'hush-hush', closed door policy, and only pretends to care about the employees in order to save face. Human Resources are condescending, unprofessional and doesn't take ownership. Payroll consistently makes mistakes on staffer's paychecks, which can be detrimental when comes time to file taxes.

    Advice to Management

    Resign

    Pros

    They place many people in permanent positions and even ongoing temps in full time jobs.
    They praise their employees for their performances. Host monthly employee of the month and host special events on their behalf.
    Hours are resonable

    Cons

    Employees are not protected
    Benefits are expensive and not reliable
    Vacation/Personal/sick days are not enough but it's expected with a temp agency.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be metators help resolving the problems from both sides and not one side. It caused a lot of pain and suffering and for that should be enough to be a better company.

    Pros

    They keep you employed if you are a reasonably good employee or if the client likes you. If you apply yourself, there is some room for initial growth from staffer to management.

    Cons

    While there is room initially for job growth, most will stagnate there through no fault of their own and will soon become dissatisfied.
    Your earning and growth potential does not seem to be based on anything other than alternative job offers. People that have been working for the company for years and have continued to increase their value to the company are often laughably underpaid, yet those who have not invested themselves in the company but have another job offer get huge salary increases and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing the employees who invest in the company. There's really only so much one can invest without seeing any return on that investment.
