Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Accountemps full-time (More than a year)

Pros

If you have a strong accounting background you can obtain work easy. Great work assignments if you possess a CPA. If your not a CPA then work will be hard to find for you.

Cons

Job Security is too fragile
If you are not a CPA you will be force to take the most boring assignments and stay on those assignments as long as the client is willing to pay Accountemps. If you sit on "Bench Status" too long they will fire you.

Advice to Management

People are people not expendable tools that you throw away when you feel you cannot use them anymore.

    I have been working at Accountemps full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Accountemps is great if you are just starting out and want to get experience.

    Cons

    Accountemps is not so great if you are at a higher level. For Senior Accountants and Accounting Managers, you should use Management Resources ()MR). The only irritation I have is that I was not told about MR right away and thought all temp work went through Accountemps. I only found out about MR when I was talking to someone about permanent placement.

    Advice to Management

    If someone applies to Accountemps, please make sure they know about all the resources that Robert Half has.
