    I worked at Experis

    Pros

    To be honest at the moment I can't think of any, maybe the hours are decent.

    Cons

    I started Experis with such high expectations, and it was decent for the first year but I came to realise that when you asked for more wether it be in terms of salary, career help and progression or guidance there wasn't the support available. Why would you continute to work somewhere, put so much effort into doing a good job, hoping to make this a career and you get nothing back. The management there seem to have accepted...

    Advice to Management

    Engage more with your employees, offer them training and progression and increase salaries. Take an interest in your employees, see where they want to go what they want to do, offer them a career.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Experis for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a young and vibrant office, people are generally friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    The salary is much lower than what competitors offer, there is no career plan/fixed reviews in place, copies of reviews that have taken place have been lost and not followed up, there are no opportunities for progression and earnings are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and invest in the good people you have, not just the people you socialise with in your own time. Staff retention is low because unfortunately staff don't feel valued.

    Pros

    Provides an excellent level of service to candidates and clients alike. Employs intelligent and hard working individuals who collaborate to help them to continue to grow and continually improve its performance.

    Cons

    Can be a difficult introduction at an entry level role. However most industries are similar!

    I have been working at Experis

    Pros

    - great commission scheme - nice & friendly people - consultants are given the autonomy to work in a way that suits them, no micro-management - set career structure so you can take control - not a huge gap between management and staff, everyone is very friendly and willing to offer help & support - good team spirit across different teams - good incentives for high performing staff

    Cons

    - systems are a bit slow but this has been addressed

    Advice to Management

    - over-caution can sometimes result in missed opportunities, giving consultants a little bit of investment in certain tools can help them achieve their full potential

    I have been working at Experis full-time

    Pros

    I joined Experis in November 2011, I had 3 years experience as a new business consultant with a moderate amount of success working for small generalist IT recruitment firm. The thing that attracted me to Experis was their commitment to helping consultants grow their own business through becoming a specialist in a particular area of IT (for me that was Information and IT Security). Through a mixture of hard work,...

    Cons

    The recruitment software we use isn't cutting edge, however I have been assured that this is being addressed before the end of 2016.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep investing in passionate people who are driven and can be the leaders of the company in the future.

    I have been working at Experis full-time

    Pros

    * Good senior management * Approachable board members * Listens to, and acts on new ideas * Excellent incentives * Not a company that looks at staff as "only as good as your last month" * Excellent commission structures

    Cons

    We tend to want to please ManpowerGroup too much and are often dictated to by them. This has meant a much slower investment in new, much needed technology; should be able to act with more independence given our success and growth, but understandable reasons why we can't.

    Advice to Management

    You run a great company, but lets set realistic budgets. Our success, and year on year growth often feels like failure.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, friendly atmosphere. I worked here for 12 years working up from the bottom of my department to the top, so they do promote from within when it's deserved.

    Cons

    Frustrations of being owned by a huge American multi-national organisation, ended up not working out so well for me and my team.

    Advice to Management

    They should have stuck tried to stick to the core 'Elan' ethos and culture after the takeover... things were better back in those days.
