    Pros

    Smart, hardworking, energetic staff. For the most part really enjoyed my coworkers. Opportunity for advancement and income growth in a relatively short period.

    Cons

    Super high pressure atmosphere. All activity is tracked and it is all about hitting numbers. Accountability is not a bad thing but at times it can be overwhelming. Reality of the situation is that it is not for everyone and hard work doesn't always equal success.

    Good Entry Level Position

    Former Employee - Recruiter in New Brunswick, NJ

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

    Pros

    Possibility to make some good money.

    Cons

    Epitome of micromanagement. 2 stand up meetings a day in front of whole office. You would think selling jobs would be fun because people need to work, but no so much. It is a tough business when you are relying on other people that you have hired to show up to work everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a more relaxed atmosphere.

    Pros

    Great learning experience and perhaps making friends...

    Cons

    There are too many cons of this organization. Just to name a few: First, the pay is terrible, especially if you consider the amount of hours worked. They reel in niave recent grads for this reason. Two, most managers, while knowledgable in recruiting, do not understand the basics of managing a team. They use fear of losing your job to motivate you to get more people for jobs. They blame you if a person doesnt accept a low paying position offered by us and blame you if someone is a no call/no show for an interview with you. This company goes through employees left and right and they are in constant rotation. Management also tries to get you to believe there is nothing better than being a recruiter in their organization by belittling other organzation and corporate recruiting. its surprising the company currently has a 2.8 rating. Every person i have ever met that worked for this organization HATES it. If I can save one person the trouble of wastign their time here, I will. Please reconsider employment with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage and do not micromanage your recruiters. Dispite what you think, Aerotek is not the best place to be and recriuting is not Rocket Science.

    Signed,

    Thriving in a real organization.

    Pros

    Team support and training for professional development. Goal oriented company culture and team building. Opportunity to gain professional and life skills.

    Cons

    The commission structure for recruiters makes it difficult to make money because it favors the account managers. Also recruiters are assigned an account managers and industry and never change so they are forced to work on the same sales persons business's over and over regardless of how profitable the positions are or how easy they are to fill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the recruiters the most respect because they are the root of your business
