    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 3 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

    I have been working at Experis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    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

    I worked at Experis full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place with great people. Will take people with no experience and train them as long as they have the right work ethic.

    Cons

    Terrible start salary for trainees. However i have to say if your willing to work hard you can earn plenty overall with commission.

    Advice to Management

    Always found the board level fantastic. A little more time with the troops on the ground would be great.

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

    Pros

    - Friendly people - Earning potential is good

    Cons

    - Low basic salary - Poor training for people with no prior recruitment experience - The building is atrocious (toilets and lifts are always broken!) - Lack of communication between management and staff

    Advice to Management

    Its a bit of a selfish environment, everyone is working for themselves. Maybe you should consider implementing some kind of team work across teams and most are working similar roles. You really need to sort out your key accounts client. Lack of communication, lack of roles and the fixed KPI figure for each placement does not reflect the difficulty of the roles. Especially when you compare these to other accounts where...

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

    Pros

    Managers are very open to discuss to any issues but do not have the power to solve those issues.

    Cons

    Experis charged £2.5 (just a figure) from their client and give employees £1. On the other hand due to these high charges employees are not allowed to do any Overtime although there lots of overtime available from the client side.

    Advice to Management

    Be accurate with your contract information.

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

    Pros

    Friendly teams, good clients, commission structure is ok with some accounts. Relaxed environment but fast pace. Lunches for people that bill well and monthly office meetings for updates and rewards. Not a long term job/career. Potential to bill well but fast paced environment, not for the faint hearted.

    Cons

    No career progression. Retention rate is terribly low. Salary is too low with no structure to progress and get pay rise. Managers are either very relaxed or micro manage. No support. No training after initial start.

    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.
