    Pros

    Good team, interesting work, good client base

    Senior managers are detached. You'll never meet a senior manager but you will be set unrealistic targets with no 'thank you' when you achieve it.

    I worked at Randstad full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The moment I left the there!

    Cons

    How much time do you have: trained to use unethical tactics towards schools/clients to make as much money as possible - just don't care about their clients and schools. Management are awful and have shocking leadership qualities and struggle to lead by example - really unprofessional. Management are shockingly hypocritical and the least influential people I have ever worked with. Avoid Randstad at all costs. Just do not care about their staff and full of broken promises
