    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The ability to contribute quickly at a new job and meet new people is great. The office staff are great at understanding my strengths and setting me up for success on my assignment! Benefits are provided if you require them (at a cost).
    Many functions are online/electronic, which is good for staying on top of pay stubs, submitting hours, etc

    Cons

    Like any temp agency, your assignment may be for a short period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the path of using technology to support associates. The "Gig Economy" is a good fit for Manpower
