    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training program Some very nice people that work there Good pay if you are a top recruiter Ability to get promoted within 1-2 years Easy to get another recruiting job

    Cons

    Poor management The current senior leader has had almost the entire office (50 people) quit or get fired in 2012. Granted, there were some bad employees, and there still are several bad AM's that do anything they can to save face. It's just bad business. Long hours-- M-F from 7:30-6:30 and don't be late or you'll get fired Entitled Account Managers that think they rule the world Preferred treatment for men Forget using your vacation and personal time-- they won't let you You will have to work from home when you are sick, or they may accuse you of not being sick and make you come in "Optional" happy hours until 10 PM Fearing for your job on a daily basis because coworkers throw you under the bus

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the current management entirely and transplant a good person to run the business.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are two different types of reviews on here. 1: if you have worked as a contractor put to work by Aerotek (or were trying to get put to work by Aerotek). 2: if you worked AT Aerotek, most likely as a Recruiter or (if you got promoted) an Account Manager. This feedback is as a Recruiter who worked at Aerotek. If you are a recent college grad and want to make friends, this is a great place to work if you like to drink and hang out with your coworkers.

    Cons

    This was by far the worst job I've ever had. They only hire recent college grads who love to play sports and want to advance quickly. Therefore, you have a culture of people with very little diversity in the types of personalities that work there. Everyone would go to lunch together and happy hours together. Sure, this sounds fun when you're 21 (and don't have a spouse or significant other), but if you have someone you want to go home to, its pointed out who doesn't participate. And very frequently coworkers would show up hungover which was totally acceptable. If you aren't a drinker, you probably won't fit in. Hours are long. You must be at your desk by 7:30am or you will be called out on it - by "kids" with like 6 months of work experience no less. Minimum you must be there until 5:30pm. Most people don't want to be the first to leave, so they don't leave until about 6pm at the earliest. The culture doesn't hesitate to give you feedback in front of everyone at group meetings on a daily basis. This can be positive - but in the office I worked at - was mostly negative criticism. Again, its usually in front of everyone. You work in teams...but can have your candidates easily stolen away from other Aerotek offices, or by your own team members. There are "rules" against this, but they aren't followed very closely. Because young grads are the only ones hired, you get management that isn't experienced. They are typically very young (late 20's) who have no other baseline but the Aerotek juice. They don't always understand what is good or bad management behavior because they haven't seen any other management styles in an office environment.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with more experience.
