    I have been working at Aquent as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working as a contractor allows designers to experience different working environments and sharpen their talent and overall skill set. From in-house design departments to advertising agencies to small design studios – all have different work flows and require different design and production skills.
    Working with a temp agency allows designers to work for an employer without long term commitment to see if it is a good fit for long term employment.

    Cons

    Contractors must be adaptable, ready to hit the ground running and learn on the fly.

    Pros

    The recruiters will work as actively as you like. They are very responsive and the recruiters listen well to client's wants and what they are not interested in. Aquent provides support throughout the contract, and workers can contact them at any time with any needs.

    Cons

    Health insurance could be far better; no match to 401(k)
