    Pros

    Young workforce, weekly paycheck, onboarding/training, fun working environment

    Cons

    Long hours with low pay. Recruiters have low bases with the opportunity to make commission. HR staff is underpaid in comparison to the industry. Have to drink the kool aid to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate salaries & responsibilities for all of the positions. Hire managers that have the ability to lead and to make the right decisions even when it's not the popular one.

    Pros

    Good way to get some experience as a new grad. Free food and expensed lunches. You work some cool companies its a good way to build rapport with key people and get a job at those companies.

    Cons

    Where to start, there is just so many negatives that one can talk about Aerotek San Francisco! For 1 it is a "feedback rich" environment AKA you can say whatever you to someone and criticize in derogatory way but its all part of career development. Some of the most tenured recruiters are the worst, partly because that normally means that they failed at being an account manager because no one in their right mind stays at the company as a pure recruiter for more than 18 months.

    Aerotek San Francisco does not foster out of the box thinking and relies on recruiting practices from the 1980s. We live in a tech world and having hard copy resumes will not sustain itself much longer. Also its bad for the environment. At innovative companies, Aerotek's best practices would be seen as a waste of time. If there is an ATS in place why is there the need to talk about candidates moving through the funnel each morning at 7:45AM with every team in the office??? That is a waste of 40 minutes each morning, time that can be spent on recruiting.

    You will work long hours, mostly 11 hour days and your account manager will be upset if you try and leave at 5. The last meeting of the day is at 5:30....but you start work at 7:30...how is that sustainable??? It's not that's why.

    Advice to Management

    Really, just close down operations. That would do everyone a service

    Fair pay and placement was fast.

    Cons

    They don't care if they ruin your life.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the people you put into the accounts are more then just your paycheck, they are humans with families.

    Pros

    you can make a lot of money very quickly if you are in with the right people

    Cons

    -no professional development. If all you care about is making money, this is fine. However, you won't go further than account manager or ARM. They will tell you that you can move into other management roles, but the reality is that there are so few spots for so many internal candidates that the likelihood is slim.
    -Ethical behavior is only presented to prospective hires and clients. There is a lot that goes on behind closed doors that would make any sane person sick. They get things done through intimidation and secrets. They will flatter you so that you will be on their team, and then force you to keep your mouth shut if you want to advance professionally. Managers frequently make fun of the recruiters in front of the whole office, and progress is attempted through shaming of employees. Managers are given free reign and no accountability to their superiors, so as a result, recruiters are treated as minions to stay until all hours of the night to make their account managers commission, holding onto the promise that one day they can get there too.
    -Top level management does not seem to care about the treatment or behavior of their lower level managers. I have seen serious discriminations overlooked, harassments swept under the rug, and threats made. These have been reported, and overlooked. There is absolutely no accountability or decent behavior standards.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the payscale so that recruiters are not earning half of the commission for three times the work. Empower the triangles to be partners rather than dictatorships. Seriously reconsider the realistic work-life balance that exists. Do not tolerate any discrimination, harassment or threats simply because the offender is a high performer.

    Pros

    They get you experience you need to obtain according to your degrees and interest right out of college! They treat you respectfully and response quickly to your every need.

    Cons

    It's mainly third-party contract work that pays hourly, and no 401K plan. They do offer some insurance benefits which is better than nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Check in more frequently with employees at different sites.
