I worked at Aquent full-time (More than 5 years)
Aquent has extremely good benefits and a great PTO plan. Their pay is competitive; nothing to complain about. Good co-workers.
The company has a major change of direction and priorities on a constant basis, which causes confusion internally and with their clients. It is clear that the owner has been trying to sell the company and wishes to "puff it up" to make the financials look better than they are. He has so far been unsuccessful in finding a buyer. Given his mindset, it doesn't look like he is going to stop chasing rabbits anytime soon.
Advice to Management
The owner needs to let his manager manage, and not simply implement the "flavor of the day." Short of that, the company will never grow beyond what it is right now.
