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

    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.

    Former Employee - Recruiter in Cincinnati, MO (US)

    I worked at Manpower full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Pay was decent
    - Work was rewarding (helping others find work)
    -Great work ambiance

    I truly enjoyed this job because I was helping out employees during the recession find employment to meet their expenditures. The people who worked at Manpower were really nice, and all had a positive attitude. I believe the hiring managers were really good because there was no tension in the workplace. Overall a good company.

    Cons

    - Many of the jobs offered were revolving door types of jobs
    - Not a lot of opportunities for advancement

    My only real problem with the company was the lack of opportunities for advancement. I have heard that this has changed in recent years. Remember I was working for Manpower during the peak of the recession so I am sure this had something to do with it. Either way I would have liked for more opportunities as I was would have enjoyed working at Manpower for a longer period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Let employees know of realistic advancement opportunities
