    Pros

    Consultants eligible for benefits after working only a few hours
    Can get you inside some great companies
    Pays consultants promptly every two weeks, even if the client hasn't paid

    Cons

    Most agents don't know what they're doing
    Agents generally don't take the time to get to know your skills or background
    If there's a problem between you and client, Aquent sides with client; they'll pretty much throw the consultant to the wolves
    Seems to be very little business development -- they don't sell consultants' skills, just wait on available positions to open up
    High turnover among agents/recruiters -- I worked with six in less than a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some experienced HR people or others. I worked with a couple of 20-something recruiters who seemed to blindly put me up for whatever job came open, regardless of whether I had the skills. Frustrating for both me and the employer. I had one agent who was more experienced, and she was wonderful -- but she was frustrated with the company and left after just a couple of months.

    Flexibility, because you are a contractor.

    Cons

    You are a contractor, and treated as such.
