    I have been working at Manpower as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Friendly Staff.
    - Very helpful.
    - When they find a job that fits you and you're willing, they do everything they can to put you into that position.
    - Easy to understand structure.
    - Can help you get into big well known companies.

    Cons

    - No communication on how you're doing at the position you're in.
    - No salary increase (been there for years. no change to the salary, despite getting a ton of praise at work).
    - For some people (not for me), it can be a con if your supervisor is in another state and you can either be alone or be with someone who can be just as clueless.
    - Their health insurance costs can be steep, especially if you're not working that many hours.
    - You are either gonna be in the same position forever or the company you're a temp for will hire you. Its the only route it is going to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give praise and show appreciations to workers who have been there for a long while.

    I worked at Manpower full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure to multiple national & international client companies, a good team environment and variety of work.

    Cons

    The work load is so high that unless you are willing to 'volunteer' 10 - 20 hours per week of your own, unpaid time; you will flounder under the demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your dedicated staff in their educational goals and allow workers to bank their time, or be compensated somehow for the extra effort that they put in to successfully manage the client accounts and workforce.

    Pros

    I'm gaining good experience. I work with some great people.

    I sometimes feel lost because I don't really have a supervisor. So it would nice if there was someone I could turn to for help.
