    Pros

    Great team, good boss, work-life balance. The workshops and sessions held were relevant and helped me grasp market knowledge and dynamics.

    Cons

    Employee engagement could be stepped up. Cross functional interaction was only informal over lunch, friends hanging out, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allocate some more budgets to employee welfare activities, if possible

    I worked at Manpower

    Pros

    Till June 2008,
    the most cohesive and performance oriented teams in the country (600+) consultants
    Highly Aspiration Team and learned superiors to lead the business.

    Cons

    Post 2008,
    The Most destructing management ever - the employee strength fell from 150 to 20 in 1.5 yrs (till 2010) in Mumbai.
    New Management that came in between 2007 to 2009 was highly revenue oriented as if one is selling sim cards - the dynamics of human capital business could never be understood

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get back all your old people and come back with a punch! The company in India had the best team ever.

    I have been working at Manpower full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The contracts I've had have been challenging and well compensated. I've enjoyed the positions offered and all have been within reasonable commute.

    Cons

    The down side is that the contracts have been very far apart. This makes using Manpower a gamble. Financially, this means struggle between contract. They are too few and far between to maintain reasonable status with the DWD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agents need to stay in contact more often and be more accessible to phone messages.
