Manpower India from the dumps and now back into the dumps!! :-(

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mumbai

I worked at Manpower

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

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

Excellent Talent Placement Agents

Manpower Associate On Long-Term Temporary Contract Assignment (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI (US)

I have been working at Manpower as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThere are two ways to work here: 1) As a temp/temp to hire, etc for Manpower's clients and 2) As a direct employee for Manpower (the company). As the first, I have had nothing but a great experience. Their online application process & applying for positions is easy and once connected with their Talent Placement Specialists, they go above and beyond to find the best position for you and their clients.

ConsI have no cons for this excellent company! Though they are indeed large, I have never had a phone call not returned immediately by my Job Agent.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! Continue to reward your Talent Placement Specialists!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good career opportunities and learning if you come in to the right unit

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Manpower

ProsIndependent environment where initiatives can be rewarded greatly. Good leadership intentions and great strategies. Great work life balance

ConsCan get stuck and not truly global when it comes to career opportunities. Leadership too traditional and somewhat weak in terms of execution

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to put a structure that allows to understand what really goes on in the business and do not just rely on management structure to handle this. This can make Manpower go from wanting to be a industry leader to becoming one.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
