    I worked at Spherion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of technical tools to keep you organized.

    Cons

    Too many meetings to actually complete milestones and objectives. Also had a executive manager require each person two work the day after Thanksgiving with zero exceptions to coming in. This is a nonproductive day and every other firm works a skeleton crew or closes this day. Requiring a full staff to sit there and do nothing did not encourage goodwill in working with the organization. I was a manager and resigned over this.

    Advice to Management

    Let people roll up their sleeves and work.

    Pros

    Positive family like culture, excellent team work, This Owner is incredible

    Cons

    Benefits could be much better compared to competitors

    Advice to Management

    Too much attention given to underperformers, often forgetting or overlooking the longtime loyal, overachievers that are not high maintenance. People will take you where you want to go, spend more, quality time with top performers.

    I worked at Spherion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company was easy to work with. Once assigned with an employer, Spherion does not intervene with job. They let the employer take control of the position.

    Cons

    Lacking in Communication. When a company does a layoff, Spherion has not really provided any communication for other jobs. Throughout the assignment they never checked to see how things were going with the employer.

    Advice to Management

    When employees go through a layoff, staff should help locate other jobs.
