    I have been working at Aerotek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Aerotek is a great place for someone who is still relatively early in your career. You get to learn a lot about how business is done. There is a lot of young people, so it is definitely a fun atmosphere and you get closer with your coworkers than you would at most other jobs. As far as compensation goes, if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone and develop continually, you can make a whole lot of money

    Cons

    Hours can be a bit long, as you work in a production based environment. Also, if you aren't doing very well, you won't make a whole lot outside of your base pay. Benefits are expensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more money in internal beneftis

    I worked at Aerotek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get some great training here that you can use in your recruiting future. It is an established brand so there are always jobs to work on. Account Managers are typically supportive. There are many social events and you make some lifetime friendships.

    Cons

    The way they treat their recruiters is very extreme. As a fresh college grad, they can be very harsh and Red Zone meetings are so intense with threats that they could lose a million dollar account if you, as a new recruiter, don't fill a position in time. I also might add that it is AVERAGE for both employees and account managers to faint and/or have seizures during these stand up meetings due to the stress/pressure. If you don't have a great and tenured account manager, you may struggle because they "assign" you to their reqs as top priority so if those reqs end up falling through, it makes it near impossible to grow. Ask almost anyone else who as worked there and they will probably agree that the pay is very low, no work life balance, and it is a revolving door when it comes to recruiters.

    Pros

    Very good place to work right out of college
    Hard work is actually rewarded here, if you work hard you will succeed. Aerotek provides you with a template, if you follow it and if you can handle working hard, this is a good place to work.
    This is a great place for competitive people to work

    Cons

    Very long hours, sometimes monotonous work. If you do not fit the culture you will not last long with the company. Working in the wrong division can hurt your income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire the right people, make internal hiring harder process. When considering people for promotion, promote the best player, not the player that has been there longer.
