    I have been working at Aquent full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Incredible benefits - medical, dental, vision, vacation. Aquent is truly concerned about it's employees and contractors. Contractors have the option of great medical benefits through Aquent as well. People are very passionate about achieving their goals. Knowledgeable managers, VPs & SVPs.

    Cons

    Not sure about senior level managements level of commitment. We hear from our President from time to time but not the CEO. I think if John was a bit more involved with higher level discussions with companies we do business with, we would be much further ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hi John - please get more involved with higher level discussions with our top companies that we are trying to establish a stronger partnership with. It will go a long way! If you really want us to land the big fish, should we use the biggest, shiniest lure?

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Aquent in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most recruiters handle situations professionally.... without making you feel pestered, so you get the chance to think if this is truly the new project you want to pursue. They work with los of clients, and compete with other agencies. I get the impression that the amount they get for ea h contractor they place is higher comparex
    d to other agencies... meaning that contractors get a bit less compared to working with other agencies as third party ... overall, its a good experience and I liked it.
