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

    Pros

    Paid holidays off, easy work life balance

    Cons

    Poor training, lack of direction because one owner gives you one set of directions, the other dismisses or openly yells at the other, a lot of tension

    Advice to Management

    Culture matters, a person can not be productive if they do not feel appreciated

    Pros

    Variety of work opportunities and good experience

    No benefits or PTO. When you get close to the benefits, your assignment is done, therefore, you do not become eligible.

    Pros

    Not really many to list, unless you are desperate for a job under any circumstances

    Cons

    Disorganized, upper management to site management. Focus on EOC and nepotism, rather than highly skilled professionals, even when demanded by client

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps rebuild from the top down with a focus on customer and customer needs rather than diversity and H1B1 tax breaks

    I worked at Spherion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company, many clients. The work/life balance was very good.

    Cons

    The margins they work tend to be smaller than average and the commission structure is split between the recruiter and the salesperson, making the commission structure very low. The idea also seemed to be volume, so they chased away most of the senior talent. Since I left, none of the senior recruiters in my office work there anymore. It looks like they have tried to hire entry level recruiters so that they can manage via submittals, not the quality of the submittals.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hold on to your better recruiters. Pay a better commission structure.

    I worked at Spherion full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Independent, responsibility, shared resources, training, recognition

    Cons

    tough to get in, communicating change of direction, Management focused on the bottomline vs. the people that get the bottomline for them .

    Advice to Management

    continue to get to know your people and who they are vs. what they do .... knowing who they are gets them to do what you hired them to do ...
