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

    Pros

    Strong company culture, transparent values and mission. A focus on giving and receiving feedback. Clear goals and incentives. Can be fun and lucrative if you are willing to work hard.

    Cons

    "Jock" mentality. It is a very testosterone driven workplace in an attempt to drive competition and success. It can be a little overwhelming. They also don't pay great, although I've heard the base salary has been raised since I left the company. You can make a lot of money but you have to be willing to work a hell of a lot. Your work/life balance definitely suffers.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time

    Pros

    Pros- Learn about the industry. Learn about yourself and your skills. Learn about what it takes to get to the company. They expense meals and mileage.

    Cons

    Cons- The moment a new manager took over, it was their way and nothing else. Upper management doesn't care about reaching out to the entry level candidates; they only care about bottom line. I was a top performer and they let me go from "job performance" when really the account manager just didn't like me because they were threatened by me. Then it became very ridiculous when it came to the end of my assignment. No communication from HR on what the next steps were and people who reached out to me had different reasons as to why I was let go. Shady. My account manager was a tyrant and stressed out all of the time. I had zero professional growth. Also they expect you to be there from 7:30 to 6:30. There is NO Work/life balance here. There is a reason why contractors are unhappy with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
