    Pros

    I am a recent college graduate that was hired this summer into an entry level position. Since joining the company I have had the opportunity gain first-hand experience and grow within the company. All of the employees and supervisors have been really nice and helpful. I even had the chance to meet Roy, the CEO and he was very friendly, approachable, and genuinely interested in the work I was doing for the company. I would wholeheartedly recommend working for this company!

    Cons

    Spherion has a very traditional work environment that may not be suited to all workers. It is also hard to find parking.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, Spherion is a great company to work for and they offer many opportunities to advance within the company. I would recommend salary increases based on our annual reviews.

    Pros

    Career opportunity unmatched. Spherion has offices all over the country, and do a great job promoting from within. Great starting place for recruiters and account managers in the recruiting business.

    Cons

    Vast operation, there are so many different groups and organizations within Spherion, if you are not careful, you can get lost in the shuffle. You must keep your eyes and ears open for internal opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the management infrastructure, and streamline the services. No company is excellent in every area, but they can be great in a few areas.
