Businesses using them will cut them out of the budget and make some current employee be responsible if they haven't already fired everyone and went bankrupt.

Like too many other corporations - fat fat management salaries. Management has no sales experience or drive.

BBSI has a mix of PEO, temping and are developing payroll services a la paychex, so there is no reason to "cut them out of the budget"-- BBSI saves companies money. Since they don't have any debt, I'm not sure how you think they are going to go bankrupt. Additionally, you wouldn't fire employees if you went bankrupt.

Management salaries are fat, but they are based on performance. Most managers at BBSI are former small business owners. BBSI specifically looks for entrepreneurs. Finally, they are incredibly lean- there is all but zero middle management, so they actually aren't like other corporations.
