    Pros

    Found a position quickly but had to take a decrease in pay because that was all they had available at that time

    Cons

    first 3 checks are snail mailed...who does that?????? Most companies have direct deposit ready the following week. They mail out checks on Thursdays at 3pm which means it probably sits in the box for the mailman until Friday and doesnt reach you until Monday. That is unacceptable and inconvenient. You can pick your check up but the office closes at 5.....when you get off..

    Pros

    I have been a practicing Electrical/Electronic and RF Systems Engineer for many years. I consider it as much an avocation as a vocational career as I have loved technology since childhood. As such I consider myself truly dedicated to all aspects of my disciplines.

    Cons

    Age. I am a senior citizen. But I don't consider this to be a downside but an advantage by virtue of the wisdom acquired

    Advice to Management

    My interests is not compensation but the enjoyment at being analytical. Your offer is satisfactory.

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn my fire! I have learned and developed much at this company. As with all employers: "this place is not for everyone" holds true. This is a very dynamic and fast-paced environment that offers great responsibility if you can handle it.

    Cons

    Despite constant roting of not being a micro-managed company or a "numbers (quota)-driven" company. "Numbers" do play a large role in your role no matter the position. The reason why this company has been successful has been the hiring of a less experienced demographic. Given the hiring, you can guess to the potential culture and at points can see the "Plug and Play" theory occurring.

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment. Good company to learn time management, cold calling, and prioritization

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. The hours are long and they expect a lot from their employees after hours

    Advice to Management

    Change the hours and allow flexible work schedules to more than people that have children.

    Pros

    Nothing, seems promising from the beginning but only gets worse.

    Cons

    Everything, too many to list and only brings up terrible memories.

    Advice to Management

    Close your doors, you are a disservice to the Treasure Valley

    Pros

    Great learning experience and training. The organization teaches you how to grow professionally. Salary plus commission. Team environment. Work hard play hard philosophy.

    Cons

    The company is full of micro managers. Aerotek is a revolving door and the smart people get out in a year. Other staffing firms pay better, offer higher commissions and opportunity for growth. The company is very customer focused but neglects their internal employees. Intimidation is a prime way to motivate recruiters, even if you are performing above standards. As a young college grad, I'm happy I did a year here and got out.

    Advice to Management

    Just because your spread was high as a recruiter does not make you a manager or a sales person. This isn't a high school sports team or popularity contest that you actually think it is. Management should be dedicated to leadership. While not all managers were bad, roughly 75% had the same terrible attitude. They hate their lives but live for money.


  9. Too much turnover to feel comfortable here

    Pros

    You learn to have a great work ethic at this company.

    Cons

    They tell you about a work life balance. But they expect you to work 12 hours a day and then work on the weekends to finish things you didn't during the week. As a new grad not what you expect. And they told me I would be in sales. Recruiting is not a sales job. Is also very hard to see success at a company when the turn over is so high. I've just hit my 1 year mark and there have been at least 30+ people who have quit/let go since I started.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest when you hire people. Also telling people that they need to work more but not give them any reward when they finish doesn't motivate your employees.

    Pros

    Aerotek, Inc. is very supportive of its employees and my recruiter spoke with me weekly and met with me monthly - usually at a company paid breakfast or lunch. Aerotek provides healthcare benefits and paid time off for its employees.

    Cons

    Can't think of any as Aerotek is the best contract employment company that I worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
