    I have been working at Manpower full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers just decent benefits, PTO, paid holidays, but the insurance is really bad for those that need medical treatment.

    Cons

    The company makes it incredibly difficult for branch staff to operate. Horrible systems, which are not user friendly and require all staff to work day and night just to keep up with the admistrative work, as they want to us to provide an exceptional experience for our associates, without administrative assistance. This job is really difficult to fulfil as there are too many demands.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your offices. You have employees working in less than par conditions. Let each office hire an administrative assistant, so that the staffing personnel and branch manager can focus on making money. Instead we focus on the ridiculous amounts of clerical staff. Hire more staff to invest in growth. This company is VERY old school and barely gives us enough staff to get the work done. So many innovative staffing firms understand to add employees is an investment in our futures. We sell temporary business as a cure for potential burn out, but upper management doesn't look at it's own. Very sad that you support your employees to be burned out.
    The yearly salary increases are a complete joke! 2-3% isn't even cost of living. I assure you NONE of us feel appreciated. This is why this company cannot keep the greats.

    I worked at Manpower full-time

    Pros

    They worked hard to get me into the right position, and were quick to be appreciative of the work ethic I had.

    Cons

    Their clients are quick to move on to the next candidate, even when the only time you miss is because of a major illness. The pool of candidates in the area is immense, so labor jobs are highly expendable.

    They also charge fees on your check if you have any kind of mandated garnishments.

    I worked at Manpower full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Manpower has fantastic benefits and was able to work from home. They has a ton of potential to make an impact as both Perm Placement and Temp have a place in our workforce.

    Cons

    Crappy Technology. Very high expectations for everyone across the company. If you perform well, the next year you are expected to perform higher. Many employees do not over perform just stay at status quo so their bar isn't raised. Lots of management changes--as a small fish in their pond, we sign non-compete agreements but the VP level leave all the time for competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with your employees
