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

Pros

--Great place to learn recruiting processes
--Commission on top of base pay
--Frequent company events
--Expense account
--Your next job will be a cake walk from the work ethic you develop at Aeroek

Cons

The pros listed above are heavily outweighed by the cons
--Zero work life balance, average hours are 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m; leave before 6:00 and you're nicknamed "part-timer"
--"Frat" environment, meaning going to the local bar with managers and co-workers is the "fast track" to getting promoted. "Come into work hungover? Good for you Sport-o!"
--Terrible base pay (approximately 30K) and commission only pays when you are over a top tier. It takes on average, 60 hours a week and 9 months - 1 year to reach this tier. By then Sr. Account Managers are pushing you into Sales so you can start all over at zero.
--Incredible amounts of internal gossip, back-stabbing, hooking-up, and sloppy recruiting (i.e. faking reference checks, which everyone turns a blind eye to).
--As a "Production" company, everything is numbers based. Recruiters are given an impossible To-Do list and the result is terrible customer service for contractors and candidates.
--High internal turn-over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

--Hold on to your employees (you hire GREAT people) by offering increased flexibility (perhaps the ability to work from home if needed), realistic goals (to increase your customer service), a decent work life balance (so your recruiters don't burn out and quit after one year), and do not continue your tolerance for dirty recruiting and internal gossip.
