Pros

Great for temporary work assignments between jobs. Account managers really have incentives to find you a spot on short notice. For long-term work it leaves a lot to be desired because benefits are poor and management is in alignment with the clients, not the consultants, when it comes to extensions, raises, etc.

Cons

Most points are already mentioned above.

Advice to Management

Improve your treatment and pay of long-term consultants because the IT industry is very competitive and you will lose your best people.

    Pros

    The reason I choose to work at Manpower was due to the flexibility and salary that I was able to have.

    Cons

    I always had to keep in contact over the phone, and it was a long drive to its headquarters when I needed to talk with someone in person.


  2. "Disappointing"

    Pros

    The jobs listed on their site tend to be higher-paying than other temp company jobs.

    Cons

    I signed up with them last summer. Went through all the testing and interviewed with my assigned representative. Per her instructions, I contacted her weekly to let her know that I was available for job assignments. A month into doing this, she told me to stop contacting her and that she would let me know when she had a job for me. It's been now seven months since I signed up with them, and they haven't provided me with one, single job assignment. I would never recommend this temp company to anyone!

    Advice to Management

    Please advise your employees to communicate with their candidates. It is a waste of time on both ends to go all through all the signing up processes, only to never get any work.
