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

    Pros

    Most of the people are fantastic and the job is relatively interesting enough to keep you busy for a while. The overall rating is two stars purely for the peers you get to work with, otherwise it would be one.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT. The department dropped from about seven managers to three, only one of whom is competent. Of the other two one is lazy and uncommunicative and it is blatantly obvious that the only reason she keeps her job is her friendship with her direct manager. The other is more interested in climbing the ladder than looking after her team and clients. Both of these managers have had numerous complaints of bullying made...

    Advice to Management

    You need to go back to smaller teams with more managers so the excuse of "my team is too big to manage" can't be used any more. Implement a thorough training program for new starters. Stop hiring people in secret as seniors it creates distrust and friction amongst the teams. Take a SERIOUS look into the bullying problem going on and stop dismissing the complaints and concerns that are raised. Your pay structure is absolutely...

    I have been working at Experis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Each member of staff is supportive and approachable. Evidence of their support includes their proactive ways of meeting and greeting you: by email, online meeting with board members, in person and sat beside you. As a result, you soon feel as though you are a well-respected family member. The effect of the above is you soon feel very comfortable to approach colleagues with any concerns or issues you believe that you...

    Cons

    Much of the work I do is on computer, which is necessary because my role supports contractors who work throughout the UK. Because those people depend upon me responding to their simple questions and queries, I believe one must be computer literate enough to reply to emails yet be confident enough to ask questions regarding which database to retrieve the simple information.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to place staff into the types of teams that you do because it creates an effective skill-base for retrieval of information and support.

    I worked at Experis (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only thing I can think of is that they pay you every week.

    Cons

    The company will not pay you for holidays when your employer is closed; only until you have worked for them nine months or 1000 total business hours. No paid time off or bereavement leave is offered, only time off you gain is sick time averaging at 2 hours a week maxing at 3 days off. The benefits are non existent for the first three months, then when it kicks in for dental, vision, and medical you're looking at $125...

    Advice to Management

    Treat the contractors better as they are they are the face and voice out there representing the company. Experis won't be able to trick the publics perception with consistently worded single lined high rating phony reviews on GlassDoor for long.

    I have been working at Experis for more than a year

    Pros

    None that come to mind - I found my position/hiring manager at the external company, and they simply redirected me to use Experis for the actual hiring. No proactive recruiting on Experis' part so I can't even speak to that side of their operations.

    Cons

    -Extremely low rate offered for my industry - turns out they make on me more than twice the rate they pay me - nice markup -Truly terrible communication with the people who are supposedly there to be your liaisons. Some are inauthentic, and I've caught another higher up recruiter in a lie. Same person would not call or email when he said he would, I had to be my own advocate to say the least. -Poor service, even just...

    Advice to Management

    My wife and I are very much glass half-full, grateful people. I don't know why the service to your contractors is of such poor quality, but I highly recommend taking corrective action. In fact, you lost a very large client in our local area (my company) because you failed our audit. Review your talent, method of service to your revenue base (contractors), etc....not sure what's going on here, but I have not benefited...

    Pros

    Challenging work with experience professionals

    Short term contract renewal, but that can be a pro as well, depending on your outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's not easy, but the job you're doing is phenomenal.
