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

    Pros

    Good Teamwork, international opportunities, travel and good benefits

    Cons

    Divergent strategy that left Spherion ripe for takeover from Randstad. Very little focus in new technologies and still relying on the way things were done.

    Advice to Management

    Look around at other vendors and sell your company to a european company that specializes in what you do.

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

    Pros

    Same as going to a circus

    Cons

    Management is awarded for acting like a seven year old with a temper tantrum. HR does nothing about it and nobody cares. Directors think they are slave masters with whips and drive you against impossible odds. "What do you mean you can't fill 115 positions in 3 weeks? Do something!" Waaay too many morons with a VP or Director title that should seriously get their head checked. Any other company, you would just be called a manager. Sexual harassment flying around like an airborne disease.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, I worked with the bulk of the bad ones. My advice is only to them.... Seek mental health treatment. There is no shame in it.

    Pros

    The company health benefits are very good. Spherion is a a large well known name in the industry. Most companies know who you are and it can open doors in the sales area for someone.

    Cons

    As a branch manager working with 7 employees, I saw no concern for our employees of which I felt the company considered expendable. The compnay also promised a speical bonus if certan goals were obtained which my office met. Sperion reneged on the bonus without a satisfactory explaination. A company where you will not be rewarded for your loyalty or efforts

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what you empplyees out in the feild and branches are saying.

    Pros

    The people that worked for SFN Group were the best.

    Cons

    Management was one of the worst I have ever seen in all my life the company sold far below it true value and the upper management walked away with millions.

    Advice to Management

    They are gone and the new company should think long and hard about using any part of their management culture.
