I worked at Manpower full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Quite a slick operation I suppose.

Cons

You're not an employee of whichever organisation you 'work' for, it's just a body shop. When IBM lost a bit of business I was shown the door rather than any attempt to find something else. You will get market rate and no more, minimal holidays and no employee benefits.

Advice to Management

I never saw a manager, you are nothing more than a commodity so they don't care anyway.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not any I can share at the moment

    Cons

    Working on site with a client of Manpowers. 20 days holiday, temp contract still going after promises of permenant employment.. No contact with Manpower, so feel alone within your team. Long hours (unpaid!!) and very very low salaries. I wouldn't be working for such a company again, that can't value their people!!

    Advice to Management

    Recognise the work of all employees - off site and fee earners.

    I worked at Manpower full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, good boss, work-life balance. The workshops and sessions held were relevant and helped me grasp market knowledge and dynamics.

    Cons

    Employee engagement could be stepped up. Cross functional interaction was only informal over lunch, friends hanging out, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Allocate some more budgets to employee welfare activities, if possible
