I worked at Experis full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- On many vendor lists
- Competes favorably at clients that are large users of IT staffing
- Solid financially
- Great place to learn recruiting and sales

Cons

- Typical staffing agency: no differentiator from a consultant perspective. Very much a "butts in seats" mentality.
- Not much room for creativity for a senior sales person or recruiter.
- Mediocre benefits.
- Politics within senior management impacts field people.

Advice to Management

Since the acquisition of Jefferson Wells and COMSYS by Manpower, the organizational cultures that made these companies successful have been dismantled, and as a result there is now discord within the field.

Management should consider moving back towards being a field driven organization, and focusing on what made JW and COMSYS successful in the past.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, work-life balance, technology

    Cons

    Unless you are in management, staff employees are very undervalued and respected. They pile on the workload and underpay. While they call you a professional, they do not treat you like a professional. Once branded, there is no room for growth. You have to be young and attractive to fit into their culture. Lots of pretentious personalities and egoists. Managers abuse their power and if you rub one the wrong way, your job is no longer secure; no matter how good you are at what you do. The central market is the worst, but because they exceed their numbers, they are allowed to act the way they please. If you do not join in the game, you are ousted.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees equally regardless of their appearance or their lack of desire to entertain your sexual fantasies. Stop the sexual harassment and approving extra marital affairs within the office. Really think about the way you spend the organizations money on entertainment.
