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

    Pros

    The headquarters building in downtown Milwaukee is a nice place to work. Great camaraderie with co-workers...until they started being laid off.

    Cons

    A company starting to spiral...mass layoffs over the last year, particularly in IT (most IT work now in the process of being offshored).
    Management incapable of articulating its vision.
    Purchase of COMSYS a mess...systems still not integrated almost two years after merger.
    It was a good place to work several years ago, but it's sadly a mess now.

    Advice to Management

    Get off of the weird, new-agey sounding concepts like "talentism"...and focus on the basics.
    Quit the whole "reaching industry star" nonsense. Is Manpower supposed to give itself a medal for reaching "industry star?" And how is "industry star" being measured?

    Pros

    Busy, fast paced. Meet lots of different people. Good experience for recruiting, interviewing and sales.

    Learn quickly that many people looking for temporary work are not reliable, gets old fast.

    Advice to Management

    Thought the training was great. I had a great branch manager who taught me a ton.
