    I worked at Experis

    Pros

    Results driven environment without the usual high-pressure sales focus. Reasonable expectations and a very strong and cohesive Delivery team. Delivery Manager is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and supportive and helps create an inclusive and supportive culture. Lots of social events like rounders, football. Not great if you are not a sports person, but always invited to join in. The commision is excellent and there...

    Cons

    The team leader I worked with was a little inexperienced and lacked people skills (apart from gossip in the break room) This is, however, the exception and the majority of leaders here are approachable and intelligent.

    Advice to Management

    Despite being very busy the Management team make time for their staff. Keep up the positivity!

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Generally, decent people working around you on the same level. Allowed me to gain experience in the line of work I wanted to go into.

    Cons

    Support staff, especially contractor care, are never held in particularly high esteem. Workloads were getting worse and worse with multiple experienced members of staff leaving in such a short period of time due to poor pay, next to no benefits and absolutely no reward for consistent hard work. The company is only interested in its recruiters. These are the people that make them money after all... Everyone else, a complete...

    Advice to Management

    Sort out your pay structure, progression and culture for Support Staff. The staff turnover is astonishing. The fact you don't seem to mind that as a company, you're providing your contractors with such an awful service (through no fault of contractor care themselves, mainly due to staffing levels and inability to retain experienced staff) is borderline laughable.

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I worked with Experis for over 3 years. Its a great company with good benefits and commision scheme. Good place for someone who wants to work hard and grow in career + make money.

    Cons

    Immediately management was very poor, lack of goals and drive.

    Advice to Management

    Get good inspiring managers.

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Overall, I think positively of my career at Experis, but only marginally. The company gave me good career development, exposure to different teams, clients and roles. The people at Experis are a credit to the organisation, you build strong relationships and friendships.

    Cons

    Stop promoting the wrong people, often is the case if you are friends with the decision makers you'll be promoted. This has left some weak people in management positions (team lead, service delivery manager etc) which results in disengaged employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the merger with Manpower - Experis' brand in the market of contract recruitment is stronger. If we are to 'merge' then change the name because MAN (!?) power. Stop promoting the wrong people. Have a better backbone for people who take the ...

    Pros

    It is a good company in average

    Cons

    They charge the client a certain amount and pay about 1/4 of it to the consultant employee.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility in terms of pay to your valuable employees

      I worked at Experis full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Part of a global organisation, some very tenacious people and talent to draw upon, some fantastic SME's (some of the best in the business) and some very interesting 1st generation clients

      Cons

      Totally disjointed from the other brands, global but regionally operated, nothing in the way of technology investment, a lot of over inflated self opinions and second tier clients at best. Crucially, no innovation, no ideas, tech, methodology or plan

      Advice to Management

      It's very hard to make significant investments when margins are being reduced but technologically Experis was being left well behind. The gap was widening and it would take some brave decisions, "just make it work" isn't a sustainable long term strategy. This might have changed now that almost the entire board has changed

      Great team environments. People work hard for each other.

      Cons

      Account managers and up have to fight for commission. Scorecards are confusing and AM get paid less than recruiters. Total mis-match!

      Advice to Management

      Sort scorecards. You are losing your best staff
