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

    Pros

    I had two long term assignments from Adecco, each lasting 2 years, one of which led to an offer of permanent employment within the field of Psychiatry.

    Cons

    Weekly pay, option to be reassigned if the assignment didn't work out, gained more experience in a different field of medicine.

    I have been working at Adecco USA part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Application was quick and easy. Talking on the phone with local representative was a joy. I got a call back later for additional employment opportunities for which I seemed compatible. They direct deposit pay checks, but you do not get a pay stub. You can text to find out your pay info.

    Cons

    It was quite confusing really nailing down the job I wanted. I ended up getting put in as a "backup" at first, which was disappointing, but I eventually was able to work 15 days straight. There is a quite a lot of paperwork to complete when you pick up a job (but I guess that's the case anywhere); pretty quick to complete, however, if done on a home computer.

    I have been working at Adecco USA full-time

    Pros

    There is room for growth and your manager will map out how to get there and steps needed to take to get there. My manager was hands down the best manager I have ever had the pleasure of working with and was the reason I stayed for as long as I did. Great health benefits, 19 days PTO when you start out, 401K, stock options, managers are willing to work with your schedules.

    Cons

    The directors and VP's say they care about the colleagues but their actions speak very differently! No holiday parties, no annual increases, low pay for the work you are expected to do, you have to bend over backwards to get your settlement fees, the candidates you work with are one of a kind (not in a good way).

    Advice to Management

    To the VP's and Directors- you really need to make your colleagues feel valued and stay true to your promises you offer each year and the incentives you promise within the branches.

    I worked at Adecco USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues and some of the contingent staff were fun to work with. Very fast paced environment, exposure to many different facets to HR. Great time off package.

    Cons

    Lack of training. Been with the company for a long time and there never has been any formal training program set in place other than online modules. No extra incentive for tenured employees other than more time off. Other than PTO, benefits package is sub par. No company parties or holiday events from corporate, other than small events/pot lucks coordinated bu local employees

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees how you would like to be treated. Involve everyone on team when making decisions. Come up with a plan to keep tenured employees (which is rare) and try to focus on reducing turnover

    Pros

    Fair Pay and some professional growth was possible

    Cons

    Was not given notice before the "assignment" was ended, was mislead to believe there was a "temp to hire" possibility by coworkers and branch manager. Mixed messages.
