Good place for contract consultants in accounting and internal audit
Global Subject Matter Expert (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – May 5, 2017
Experis evolved from a high level consulting firm to more of a staffing company, similar to Robert Half over the last few years. The pressure to be on billable engagements is strong. There are few staff consultants. The corporate HQ staff level is so lean that it impacts getting answers on benefits, for example, difficult. There is currently a regional profit and loss responsibility, which makes national efforts to introduce new products and services extremely challenging.
The retention rate is now on par with other staffing firms and there is less loyalty or camaraderie. The culture one experiences the most is whatever culture exists at a client level.
The work can be very interesting and varied. The pay, while okay, was stuck with no merit increases for several years because the profitability goals were always just a bit out of reach. The local managers and sales people were pleasant, although leadership could sometimes be shortsighted.
Pleasant professional staff
Management in HQ less than excellent, very lean support staff, mostly offshore
