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

    Pros

    During the period, it allow the employee develop their career with a good brand name since it is a fortune 500 company, the training had provided in full with what employee needs to resolve daily issues. very work life-balance there is not much agency allow finish at 6 and starts 10 am most of the staffs are.

    Cons

    Process culture this has slow feedback/reward and low risk, resulting in the following: Low stress, plodding work, comfort and security. Stress that comes from internal politics and stupidity of the system. Development of bureaucracies and other ways of maintaining the status quo. Focus on security of the past and of the future. It is an HR company but the staff needs to pay penalty if work less than one years (One... month :( ).

    Advice to Management

    Employee would want a more fair approach on the employees since some staff had try to make their name recognized by follow fully to meet the standard, the process culture has slow the company progression result in losing talent in the market.

    I worked at Manpower full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Easy to get upper hand during negotiation as this is a real global company name. Good exposure. Good experience.

    Cons

    Difficult to attract talent to join as the training (induction classes run by dept heads) clauses bind new hires in Hong Kong (require them to sign on the employment contracts) to stay in the company for not less than one year, or else, the employee will be sued by the company with the penalty of his/her one month salary. It is not common in HK market! Cliques are inevitably serious as there’re lots of long service... key account holders which are making talent hesitated to join.
