Pros

The initial training they offer is excellent and is something that attracted me to the job in the first place. They helped me become a successful consultant although there were many aspects not covered. The branch networking is great and very helpful, especially when finding candidates a new role if they are willing to travel. They treat you fairly well as an employee and even for a large company can make you feel like an individual.

Cons

They ask too much of each consultant in the way of administration and paper work. They require a 'con call' for everything they do, which in some cases can be useful if used right but on too many occasion they can waste time. The commission structure is fair between consultants although to make any bonus and commission on a regular basis is extremely difficult, no matter how go a consultant you are. This initial training is brilliant, but it can take too long to have this and once this is finished there is little support sometimes, especially for a new employee to recruitment.

Advice to Management

The management style isn't the best and can leave each individual feeling left out and unappreciated at times. They offer training on a personal level, but this is something that needs to be asked for before they do anything about it. Monthly reviews can be too much and can leave you feeling deflated.

    Pros

    Absolutely enjoy my position and have an awesome Manager. Manpower is open to innovation and rewards "out of the box" thinking.

    Cons

    Other than working in RPO which basically means you often work yourself out of a job (recruiting in general) no complaints.


  2. "Great Career Opportunities"

    Pros

    If you work hard and show initiative, the company rewards you with many career growth options. the work is challenging, and the people at the company on the whole really care about its success. senior leadership is constantly looking at ways to improve the go to market position, and really places an emphasis

    Cons

    like any large company, it has challenges with politics, the pace of change and clarity on strategic direction. you have to want to work in a complex enviroment and take the personal responsibility of understanding how all of the pieces and players work together to be successful. also, the "how" things are done is very important and the company has a very clear culture that is unique for such a big company.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the focus on being a world-class thought leader; it gives us a reason to come into work every day. make a bigger deal out of the everyday successes we provide to people in their lives. i think our field organization is making a huge impact in the daily lives of our associates. we should celebrate and publicize!
