    I worked at Aerotek full-time

    Pros

    Great people and atmosphere. Everyone is happy to show up at work daily. Great experience to collaborate with a professional team. You are not just a number.

    Cons

    Starting compensation is not the all around highest but there is opportunity to make more of you are willing to stick it out.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't change a thing about management. Everyone is there to support and grow not only the business but also you as an individual.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No clocking in or out
    Free lunch if leftovers from training
    Pay is ok
    Promote from within, but only if you are a "favorite" they don't care about any previous experience.

    Cons

    The Tempe location is completely ran by recent college grads, who have no other professional experience. That is fine if you are in the same boat, but if you have experience in corporate America, it can be difficult to work for them. They have no clue how the real world works..as they have only worked at Aerotek and are full of the "Kool Aid"

    LOTS of overtime expected, and you will get talked to if you do not stay late on a weekly basis. Lots of bar hopping as "team building", so if you have a family or don't like to go out, this is not the place for you.

    Clients do not like the billing practices, and the expectations require you to nag them multiple times every week.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced people as upper management ..stop promoting the "bros" because you like them.

    Pros

    You were paid weekly and able to leave work early the day before holidays, sometimes.

    Cons

    Upper management ONLY lets you get promoted if they want you to. You have to go through them to apply for any other position in the company. They over work you and under pay you. People who do not have a bachelors degree get paid $2,000 less than people who do walking through the door. It is literally like high school all over again. They treat you like children, even though you are adults

    Great company to work for! The culture at Aerotek is respected by all employees which makes it a great company.

    Pros

    Company has Fortune 500 size with friendly, neighborhood-esque culture. Company does an excellent job valuing diversity in both the internal hires as well as the externally staffed workforce.

    Cons

    Very outdated promotional scale, Position does not allow for freedom of operations, is much more reliant on cyclical processes, often times creating nonsensical work for employees. Mid level management positions need more supervision than entry level employees, as lack of serviceable accounts to managers breeds complacency.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on pushing growth from BOA role, do not let talent remain idle because Mid management idles.
