    Pros

    The people that work for Aerotek are amazing and what brought me in everyday. There is an energetic environment that keeps you wanting to come back for more and be the best. It was a young environment as well with a lot of like-minded people who were competitive and hungry for learning and work. I knew I could go into my managers office whenever I had a question and it would be answered right away with enthusiasm and stories from experience. It was also awesome knowing that everyone came from the same place because they promote from within.

    Cons

    In the internship program you only get to really see one side of the job which was sourcing and phone calls and not much face-to-face interaction.

    Pros

    Decent company to work for, Better than average jobs compared to other staffing services I've used. Above average pay for temp jobs.

    Cons

    They have an extended "Temp" period to fulfill for some employers before you get hired on. Look closely at their medical benefits before you accept them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire recruiters that have actually "WORKED" for a living, instead of these "BOOK SMART" kids that don't know a screwdriver from a broom handle.

    Pros

    Great people, Great training, ability to impact your earnings, great systems, great opportunity for career advancement and great processes.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other companies, company culture is a little unprofessional. Limited career potential if not in sales. Potential for success is highly tied to account manager. POLITICS

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your best recruiting talent better or you will continue to lose them to the comp.

    must be available to your contractors and clients almost 24/7; long work hours;

    Could pay more attention to the reason for attrition rather than side with the managers.

    Pros

    Tons of development and a great working atmosphere. You are given a great opportunity if willing to work hard for it.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of downside. Yes, you put in a lot of hours but this should expected with any commission based job that has the upside that Aerotek has.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly management does a great job. They encourage advancement, they create a competitive work environment and they put a ton of time into development.

    Pros

    Great training and a deep look inside of a lot of large corporations from a recruiting and HR standpoint. Aerotek also pushes you very hard to get the most out of you.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover and internal corporate politics play a large part in who gets promoted. If you work for the right managers your opportunity to be promoted rises tenfold.

    Advice to Management

    Take the politics out of the office. Performance should have a larger part in who is given opportunity rather than who likes who.

    Pros

    Aerotek cares about the employees. Family is important In the company culture. Completely up front during the hiring process. Several offices nationwide. Direct deposit is available and preferred.

    Cons

    Little to no room for salary negotiations. Difficult to change contracts, even for better opportunity they advertise. Lousy health insurance for the cost. Network of 'partners' increased amount of junk mail from insurance companies and financial services shortly after hire.

    Advice to Management

    simplify the process of change. Improve the health insurance... $5000 deductible is horrible for $80 a week. Bus pass subsidy would be a great perk.
