    Pros

    Manpower was a great place to work. All of the individuals I had contact with were very proffessional and will to help in anyway

    Cons

    The Manpower office are wide open just cubics no way to have a private conversation. I was always looking for conference rooms.

    Advice to Management

    The should be more private offices for directors and above.

    Pros

    Work was scarce for me.

    Cons

    Their agenda is the client, not you. Whatever the client needs and says is #1.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people you send on your assignments. See if it's a good fit before you send them.

    Pros

    Get to try out many different positions and meet many different people.

    Cons

    Have to leave sometimes when you want to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Get a little compassion and empathy for your employees. I just dropped off after doing everything you asked of me and no one ever called me to find out why or to even see if I was okay. Not good when an employee leaves and no one even asks why!!!

    Pros

    I was fortunate enough to manage a branch very close to my home, hence I was able go home for lunch and save money.

    Cons

    Management are only concerned with numbers/$$ to the bottom line.the way this company is structured, there's no room for growth once you hit Branch Manager status:your RD has to retire or resign first.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your field staff the way you want your field offices to treat their customers.

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

    Pros

    Offers full range of benefits for purchase.
    Managers are flexible in time off requests.

    Cons

    No annual/COLA pay raises.
    No paid time off.
    Once placed on a specific contract it is difficult to apply for other opportunities within Manpower.
    Managers place client needs over employee needs.
    Hourly employees are not treated as professionals on my specific contract, morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your employees more often and try to see situations from our point of view without automatically doing whatever the client says.
