Pros

You won't be there very long, you will receive the benefits of the contracting company, but as a temp staffing agency, they won't work very hard to find you your next position.

Cons

Lots of red tape and paperwork, a ton of "do-s and don't-s" that are really just common sense and professional conduct. Strictly temporary placement that won't lead to anything else within the company.

Advice to Management

Streamline the hiring process for workers, and treat them like thinking adults. Spherion actually needs to hire more managers - one poor woman was managing 50+ seasonal hires where I was.
