Flexible environment and great people to work with.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Prosthe most location and time flexible company I have ever experienced
real, nice people to work with
autonomy

ConsThe culture changed after layoffs in 2009 and felt like some people lost their spirit. I do think Vitamin T is changing that, but not for all staff.

CEO is a bit on the unpredictable side and can be very mean to people. Also, they have a hard time bringing in and trusting senior people from outside the company. I think this is holding Aquent back currently from new ideas and perspective that can help with growth.

Advice to Senior Managementgo back to basics, let people make some decisions and know that staffing is the core business. Seems acquisitions and start-ups haven't been so great. So go back to basics and focus on the core temp business. Sales is weaker than competitors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
