    I worked at Akvelon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An Akvelon recruiter contacted me last year and helped me on my job search. She was professional, very good at matching me up with appropriate positions and she offered fair compensation. As a result, I got a contract job through Akvelon and everything worked out great. Akvelon is very upfront about compensation, pay, benefits, etc. Their benefits are comparable to other contracting firms. I never had a problem with any of the staff and they treated me very well. If you are a contract software engineer, I would recommend going through Akvelon because they are a good agency.

    Cons

    The time reporting software is clunky. It takes about 5 minutes per week to report your time. This is a minor annoyance.

    Advice to Management

    None - Keep up the good work. I really like working with your recruiters.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Akvelon.

    Interview

    They tried to make it casual but with that seemed unprofessional and I know interviewing becomes repetitive but definitely felt like cattle. Also don't advertise competitive benefits when they're not. They offered job in person and I emailed to follow up then they retracted. Overall the interview experience opened the potential culture there - not thrilled unimpressed try to examin the professional demeanor they have towards their clients
