    I have been working at Randstad US full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding training, excellent career path, a company where you can build your own future through hard work. Our mission is to put people to work. It offers the opportunity to learn not just about staffing, but also about every local market industry.
    You start as a Staffing Consultant and move up the ranks. Randstad focuses on promoting from within. Most executives started in Consultant roles.

    Cons

    I'm not sure I can list any. Results and reliability can really get you anywhere you want in this company. Measure you own ambition and drive. If you are a high performer, Randstad is a great employer for you.

    Pros

    Benefits, Pro-Growth, Technology, Incentive Opportunities

    Cons

    High stress, Metrics driven, High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Invest in verticals that aren't successful. Randstad is a very good company to work for, but you must find a specific niche'. Overlapping service divisions between IT and Engineering causes client confusion. Similarly, branch business (O&A and M&L) compete for similar customers. The end user is the one that suffers.

    Pros

    Despite it's size, our local group felt like a small company and my co-workers were close knit. The company did promotions and awards every quarter to try and keep everyone engaged from the national level which is never easy to do. Top performing employees are treated very well.

    Cons

    There were times were there seemed to be a disconnect from regional VPs to the local office, but no more so than can be expected of a company Randstad's size.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees rather than acquisitions where people can feel left out. There's some great talent there.
