    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.

    I have been working at Randstad US full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dallas Office - Large Company with a Small Company feel. I love progress and change and this company is all about it. So much potential, if you are driven and work hard the sky is the limit. I have been here for since 2015 and have been challenged, rewarded and stretched and learned things that I will take with me to grow personally and in my career. That is the best environment I can ask for. Benefits are great - Stock options is a great perk! Presidents club trips - lots of fun competitions, and regional participation.

    Cons

    Really the only thing I see so far is more emphasis on local branding.

    Advice to Management

    More marketing at the local level

    Pros

    Randstad offers endless growth opportunities while being able to staff in several different industries. The name is reputable so it isn't hard getting business from many top brand companies. You work with a tight knit team in a small office that tends to be very productive.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company focuses more on profits than the people it serves.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great live training webinars.

    I have been working at Randstad US full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Randstad is a well-known company with a good name in the industry. They treat their employees well and offer very competitive salaries and benefits. They promote from within and foster growth and development of their employees.

    Cons

    One downside is that Randstad is so big and we have several different Operating Companies. Not all of them are on the same systems, processes, etc. so it hinders our ability to have a seamless cross-company strategy and cohesion. But it's getting close and strides are being made every day to bridge that gap.

    Pros

    This was a great place to work. The environment was friendly and training was stellar. Overall one of better companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    The real challenge was making commissions. They use a draw system and if your deal doesn't pay on time your commissions are lost.
