    I have been working at Aequor Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I recently joined Aequor and this is truly one of the best environment that i have worked. The management team has put a lot of effort in setting up an on-boarding for new employees. I was made very comfortable during my first week of employment and was properly trained on all tools that i would be leveraging to be successful in the company.
    The team is really helpful and wanted to truly help me to become successful.

    Cons

    High pressured environment but i guess that is the nature of recruitment. A lot of open positions/jobs to work on but the benefit to working on that many jobs is a lot of commission to take home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep up the good work and keep investing on your employees

    I have been working at Aequor Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really have enjoyed working for Aequor for the last 10 plus year. I have seen a transformation of this company over many years. It grew from a few people company to where it stands today due to the hardwork of each team member.
    Great teams, really work together and a very diversified culture. People respect each other and are always ready to help each other.

    Cons

    There are always cons in every company but I would be underestimating the positivity and potential of this organization if I start highlight any of them as they might be taken out of context

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Management team. I am thankful to the management team to be part of this organization and I am confident that the company is going to reach many higher milestones in near future due to their strategy and growth.

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

    Pros

    None to speak of.

    Cons

    Office is filthy and dingy and right away you can see employees are treated as if they are working in a third world country. No one had the authority to order a box of paper clips without approval from one of the two owners. Forget negotiating an employment contract. Approval to do so will take another 6 weeks. I read the review about bait and switch with rates. Exactly my experience. Mine was dropped dramatically between my first phone screen and my start date at the client. They will look you in the eye and tell you they are not making any profit on you while the client shows you proof they are billing them nearly double the rate they are giving you. They repeatedly bandaid project bids together with consultants who happen to be desparate enough to contract with them, fail miserably and then rinse and repeat. They do not have any regard for, or respect for, employment law and treat US workers as if they are working in a sweat factory. They dismissed a woman who was 4 months pregnant instead of attempting to find her another client engagement. Zero notice before releasing her just days after she had informed them she was expecting. I hear they have had several suits brought against them for similar wrong doings against employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking everyone you employ for an idiot. We all know exactly how you are using us and the profit you squeeze out of us. Your arrogance for thinking you can operate like a sweat shop and not have repercussions for wronging employees is delusional.

    I worked at Aequor Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pros what so ever about this company.

    Cons

    Salary is probably worse in the region
    Commissions are so low you can't make much above base
    Disrespectful Exec. Team they argue and curse openly
    Rude Exec they speak their native language in the presence of others
    Severely micro-managed CEO & President meet weekly with all staff
    they treat their employees like garbage...can you believe they were open for business during Superstorm/Hurricane Sandy? and also this past winter when we had a big snow storm, they expected us to go into the office no matter what.....very greedy and very selfish

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an education on managing a staffing agency in the US. Manage your managers and let them manage their staff. Get an education about solutions sales. Learn to empower your staff not belittle them. Stop trying to manage from fear and intimidation.

    I worked at Aequor Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Got to work with Aequor for 4 plus years. Had a great, exciting time during my tenure. The job was a little stressful because of innovative ideas and technologies that Aequor was working on during our project. The offshore team was great as they really added a lot of value and prided themselves on quality of their deliverables.

    Cons

    Not many to think of but benefits could be enhanced even though the company had competitive benefits compared to some of the companies of their size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing the team and continue to be innovative. Don't create too many layers between Senior Mgmt and employees to stay nimble and competitive
