    Pros

    -nice managers
    -decent pay
    -opportunities for advancement
    -four day work week
    This was a great job all things considered. I wish I could've stayed.

    Cons

    In my position, I worked 10 hours 4 days a week. This was really nice for most employees. It gave them time to run errands or make doctors appointments. However, typing for 10 hours a day gave me tendinitis / carpal tunnel. I had to quit the job, and I'm currently doing physical therapy.

    Advice to Management

    I have pretty much no advice. My bosses were nice and accommodating when I was injured. They were usually available to ask for help when I or coworker needed it.

    Pros

    Randstad is an amazing company with many great individuals. You won't find a single hostile internal employee, and many of the teams and branches are willing to work and grow with you. My current boss is incredible, and she goes above and beyond for the team. The corporate ladder is easy to climb, especially if you put forth the effort. Nothing goes unnoticed at this company, and if you're willing to work you will move up.

    Cons

    Staffing as a whole is an extremely difficult industry, and therefore it is very stressful. With as large of a company as this you will run into applicants that are angry, you will encounter technical errors, there will be slow and difficult periods, yet there will be extremely fast and busy periods.

    Advice to Management

    Structure is important, and all I would suggest is that you ensure that your teams are individual governed, as that will improve working conditions.

    The company is very good at communication between recruiter and employee. They are very good at negotiating salary & handling conflicts with contract companies.

    Cons

    No pay for holiday's even when company forces you to take off which causes you to be short on pay.
