    Sometimes management style can be too transaction for the type of business we are in.

    Pros

    Fabulous learning resources. Kelly really has a huge library of documentation on just about any and everything known about hiring and hiring processes.

    Cons

    Company is more focused on gouging clients and increasing profits than retention of staff or work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weight employees, stop the bullying in offices, follow hiring laws. If multiple complaints are lodged on employees, do something about it.

    Pros

    The compensation was on par with other employment agencies. There also does not seem to a chance for advancement with them as well.

    My advice to management is to improve your benefit structure to be on par with the clients you work with.
