    I worked at Aerotek

    Pros

    They were able to keep me gainfully employed for 8 months

    Cons

    Not very pro-active at times. Compared to other staffing agencies they did not seem to value their employees as much. No paid holidays , in 8 months time frame only 2 employee lunches

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to show you value your employees more. Many staffing agencies offer paid time off and take their employees to lunch every month.

    They don't care about their employees. Just the accounts.

    Pros

    Fair pay and placement was fast.

    Cons

    They don't care if they ruin your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the people you put into the accounts are more then just your paycheck, they are humans with families.

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn great business skills in sales and recruiting.

    Cons

    No offense, but it caters to individuals who aren't the most intelligent (jocks and barely passing college grads with sales majors). They want people who are leaders that end up making awful pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NO MORE LIES. After you transition from recruiter to account manager, your commission is taken away and you start back to ZERO. Making your 4% increase from 35 to 38K a year... Terrible margins due to corporate "fees".

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The training Aerotek provides is great. A lot of companies pull you away from Aerotek because they train you so well. Great people to work with and you can make decent commission if you are lucky to hit something big.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership from DBO. Had high hopes in development from the DBO but those dashed quickly. Development once you get promoted into sales all but goes out the window.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better development for DBOs and account managers. Hold true to the guiding principles.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are cool. Its a very young environment due to the high hiring rate of college grads. Its perfect way to gain entry level accounting (accounts receivables), customer service, account management and payroll. Skills that can get you far with business related careers.

    Cons

    Broken process. If you not

    Some Managers don't know how to manage people. Drama related Managers will search your name and spill personal business they find. Some manages will verbally abuse you, antagonize you and make you feel incompetent if you have a solid education with previous skills to improve processes.If you are not a suck up, you are view as a problem. Promotional is not based on your work efforts and your effectiveness. Its based on complimenting your manager everyday for everything and office politics.

    If you bring ideas and point out the risk (real issues ) involve in the processes and how it effect downstream processes, they would down play it as if its not the issue so it remains constant thus affecting your bonus, which is based your work efforts.

    Pay is low for the work you do. They even ask you to stay additional hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your EMPLOYEES. EVALUATE YOUR MANAGERS. Some of your managers are not fit to manage people.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Aerotek is a great company for the right person. I unfortunately was not the right person. However Aerotek does a great job of giving people fresh out of college a great opportunity to build a career. They taught me a the industry and some very transferable skills that helped me land a job I really wanted. Growth opportunities are there.

    Cons

    The culture reminds me of the Greek system at a large university. Very "clique" oriented and a lot of "bro culture" instances. They live by work hard and play harder. You work very long hours and sometimes for no real reason. The dynamics of your manager only making money when you fill positions leads to A LOT of micro management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micro managing.
    Fix the commission structure
    Give account managers opportunities to learn how to manage people

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You learn a lot about recruiting and if recruiting is your passion then Aerotek isnt for you.

    Cons

    If you dont want sells then its a hard place to grow. It is like a country club, the people who make the most are the only people the director cares about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire salaries and more opportunities to grow.
