    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great experience with a global company. They're extremely willing to help their employees achieve goals, by targeting new positions in the org or stretch goals. Great access to employee groups, benefits of working in a large org, etc.

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility within some teams (limited remote work, not flexible on hours, etc). Mediocre benefits, health and other.

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Location- loop. I worked there for 2 years, it was a nice place to work until new mgmt transition Q4 of 2017. It's very political; hence, they won't be going anywhere.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Constant revolving door. Terrible and inconsistent mgmt on the engineering side. Lost 8 people on our team since the current manager joined our team. Needs a better manager that has worked in sales role and understand building new business. The CRM used from the 80's.

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Owned by Manpower, which is a very good company. Pay is great, if you can execute. Believe there is high potential if you are on a good team in a good market.

    Cons

    Like any company, especially large ones, you can get stuck with a bad manager. Your execution depends on a good team, so if the manager is poor, your chances for success go down dramatically.

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    if i could give zero stars, I would.

    Cons

    Bret Donovan could be the most childish, incompetent manager that there ever was. I have never met a more vindictive person in my entire life. Not only does his HUGE ego get in the way of everyday decisions, but he has the complete inability to Manage people. A manager is supposed to take responsibility and lead, Bret blames and takes advantage. DO NOT work in Atlanta for this company, they are going to fail and close soon. Bret may be the biggest issue, but not the only one. the Regional is also very ego driven and a Misogynist.

    I have been working at Experis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people and parts of ManpowerGroup and the Experis brand is one of those good things. Experis has a well developed and established brand in certain areas as well as a strong global presence but it's not perfect. Experis is on an interesting path headed by a new CEO and management as things are always changing (which can be good and bad). 401k Match Plan, competitive base salaries and good training and development (if you work in HQ or are sent to HQ for training)

    Cons

    A lot of negativity within ManpowerGroup including people who used to work for other companies that were acquired by Experis (Comsys, Jefferson Wells are a few examples). There are a number of people in management who should not be in those roles and have been poor examples to their respective teams, causing good people to leave. Commission plan is very poor but other benefits are pretty good.

    I worked at Experis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The local office was a great crew to work with. And the base salary was competitive. Most employees were very willing to help with questions.

    Cons

    I was brought on board under the guise of "working existing accounts." When I got there, I was given a list of 30 "dead accounts" that needed serious attention to bring to life. The real difference Experis gives that differentiates them from the competition is "project solutions." I was not able to find a competitor that didn't have something similar. To make it worse, this "huge" differentiator was responsible for less than 5% of the business locally. This industry is cutthroat and extremely difficult to gain a foothold in. Prepare for countless hours of cold calling and explaining what Experis is (name brand recognition is close to zero).

    I have been working at Experis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great organization overall. Rigorous hiring process leads to low turnover and strong employees. Sales and Recruitment communicate well. No candidate ownership means more teamwork. Sales team shares and trades accounts, often help one another with introductions. Growing rapidly with new accounts. Great culture, work hard play hard attitude. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Rapid growth always leads to challenges with scaling. Disgruntled previous employee posted recent negative review not reflecting actual environment.
