    I worked at Aerotek

    Pros

    Aerotek is the type of place for money hungry people. If you want to help people, do not go to work here. Be ready to go in the morning at around 7:45 for "RedZone". Aerotek will teach you how to lead generate, cold call, talk on the phone and interact with people you do not know. They haze you and push you everyday to become better. Honestly, this job is for those who might not be lawyers, doctors. the most educated bunch but for those can work hard. I had a great experience and made the mistake of leaving for higher education. Work at Aerotek right out of school for 2-3 years, transfer to the city you want to live in and then put in your two weeks when you get the job you really wanted and got through the awesome training. However, if you really work hard....there is no reason why you can't be promoted in 6 months to an Account Manager and work your butt off to get to Director of Business Operations

    Cons

    The commission structure here is not very fair. However, good things take time and you should make it your priority to get your spread as high as you can before you leave. One of the main and only negatives I have with the company is the politics in the office. Lots of posturing and sucking up go on in an Aerotek office. Combine that with a workforce that is average in intelligence and above average in motivation and that leads to some ridiculous habits. Rumors spread fast in an Aerotek office because everyone is in their 20s. Great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mean should justify the results. If a worker is mainly being compensated on compensation and producing. Let them take a half day with pay or come in at 10 without such a fuss. At Aerotek, taking people out to lunch's and building relationships is very important. NEWS FLASH: Everyone not in the office at 7:45 is planning a breakfast/coffee at 9 so they can sleep in. Just lax up on the micromanaging.

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Professional young and ambitious workers. Excellent opportunity for recent grads. Great pay, fosters a team oriented work environment. Fun place to work if you are young.

    Cons

    Inexperience shows no matter how much training, some skills are obtained over time. Some people tend to think that working 12 hr days means they are productive. Many of the new managers come up with great philosophies they read in books, but have trouble practicing what they preach. Should foster a better work/life balance for their workers, considering it promoted in training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the seasoned Management is excellent and genuine in wanting to help their team to succeed. Should pay attention more to make sure that they do not allow new managers or the producers to turn into tyrants. Some people put on a good face, for management, and get away with treating contractors badly and are very impersonal with anyone that they do not see on their level or within their circle.
