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

    Pros

    Kind people and local and regional managers are decent, but their hands are tied too.

    Cons

    Low salaries, offices are in run down strip malls, company does not support smaller markets, brings all employees on as an in-house temp, which is horrible for the business we are in! Systems are old, no investments made in the company to aid the offices to be successful. Do yourself a favor and go to work for a firm that will appreciate you.

    Advice to Management

    Make some investments into your people and into your offices, and your systems. You will reduce turnover and bad exposure and reviews. You make it impossible to have a decent family life, because your office staff has to work nights and weekends to get all of the administrative work done. This company needs to get with the times and want great staff members. Just over the past year, I have witnessed a MASS exodus, and you wonder why.
