    Pros

    Fast hiring process, long assignment, available recruiter, acceptable compensation

    Cons

    Lack of Integrity in the local branch. Taxes, unemployment, and customer service were not handled with Integrity. I was surprised and disappointed, however, Integrity is a virtue missing from many of our lives.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage each other to be honest and walk in truth.

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

    Pros

    They are big on values and being passionate about the job and company. You make great friends in there and your team can become your family.as many hours you spend together your build great relationships. the position sets you up and teaches you many things about the industry and how to do your job or any job great. If you are willing to put in the time and have thick skin to give and recieve feedback all the time you can excel

    Cons

    you will work long hours, but it will get better with time once you start doing well. They push you into sales roles weather you want it or not (if you are good as a recruiter). they micromanage everything you do, with making sure you are hitting numbers that sometimes do not mean anything. it sometimes seems like they just want something to fix or argue about. they manage the time you get there, go to luch but not when you leave. it is a salaried role so if you thingk you will have flexiblity in your schedule you are wrong. they want you to be there and from luch at precise times but never push you to leave when 5 or 6PM comes along.

    Advice to Management

    compared to other staffing agencies the the compensation is not acceptable. with the crazy hours we have to put in to be sucessful, we should be compensated better.

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

    Pros

    Seems like a great first job out of college.

    Cons

    Easily work 12 hour days consistently. KPI's (Key performance indicators) are set too high causing all employees to work very late. Even when numbers are met, most stay around for 'face-time'. Very political and 'high school' esque environment. Your entrance into the company is as a recruiter and you report to an Account Manager. Not all AM's should be allowed to be someone's supervisor and boss as these AM's tend to make the recruiters do half of their job duties.

    Advice to Management

    I would not recommend this company to any entry level grad. Especially in Atlanta. Entry level candidates should have a work-life balance and not feel anxiety at work due to politics.

    Pros

    -Great training and a lot of good business experience -Competitive industry teaches you a lot about good business practices & strengthens negotiation & management skills -Good, fun work environment -Uncapped commission

    Cons

    -Not a good work/life balance company -Long hours -Low base salary & no raise opportunities without a promotion

    Advice to Management

    Raise base salaries to be more competitive. These salaries out of school are fine, but to retain people as they move forward with life there should be opportunity to increase the base without having to only hit "contest" or be promoted.

    Former Employee - Recruiter in Atlanta, GA

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Shows value of hard work. Teaches you time managment skills and how to stay organized. Throws you into the fire and gets you out of your comfort zone quickly. Opportunity to move into management roles if you do well.

    Cons

    NO work/life balance. 10 meetings a day eats up time and they expect you to put in 12-13 hour days. Micromanaged like you wouldn't believe. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    find a work/life balance

    Pros

    *Great place to start out of college - good learning experience *Great opportunity for career advancement for hard workers *Extensive contacts made and good place for growing network

    Cons

    * Churn and burn * Numbers, numbers, numbers * Managers are young, organic and do not necessarily show complete professionalism towards those they are managing

    Advice to Management

    I don't know anyone currently in Management ---- so don't feel like I am in a place where I can fairly comment on this.
