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

Pros

Company pushes for the "feel good" experience, encouraging passion and community mindedness. Decent salary, good benefits, great vacation. Truly, exceptional people working for this company at the branch level.

Cons

In the midst of a massive restructure, nobody at the branch level knows what the heck is going on. Commission structure is inadequate.

Advice to Management

Recognize the dedication and devotion of your employees., and maybe return some.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Manpower full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Vacation and benefits are good.
    Good for a person just out of college or looking to change their career path.

    Cons

    80's Management. Employees do not have a voice.

    Manpower does not empower Middle Management. The philosophy is if you are a good employee you will be a good Manager which is completely different skill set. It is not uncommon for Managers to repeatedly fail to provide a performance review to their staff. The review process is completely subjective no shared goals or objectives across departments.

    Upper Management is not in touch with the employees and with the retirement of Linda Pelej it is very much a boys club.

    No reward for being innovative or creative. Very territorial atmosphere and with the continued layoffs the environment has become oppressive.

    Advice to Management

    You have great hard working dedicated employees, ask them "If this were your company/office what is the one thing you would change?" then LISTEN to their feedback. Value their voice.
