    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great training, great entry level opportunity to get into recruiting and sales. If you are successful you will make more here than about anywhere else. Performing Recruiters are making $55k-$75k. Great Recruiters are making $100k+. Every large office has salespeople making $200k-$400k. Culture is 100% committed and generally cool type-A's you would want to have a beer with. The skills, drive, and sense of urgency you learn at Aerotek serve you well anywhere you may go later.

    Cons

    If you are just looking for a low-commitment 8-5 job while posting on social media about where you are partying that night...you will not like Aerotek. Success requires an all in approach both in work ethic and active support of the culture. That is not for everyone. There are Political Science grads 3 years out of college making $200k+, but there is a price to be paid. All the tough work comes first. If you are not up for the level of work and commitment, Aerotek is not for you. If you are, none of this is really a "con"

    As far a real cons go, the benefits are only OK, and finding work/life balance is pretty difficult.

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. The people are great (clients, co-workers, contractors)
    2. The opportunity for advancement
    3. Competitive but fun

    Cons

    1. Hours-Balancing family life and Aerotek doesn't exist
    2. "Flavor of the month" activity drivers
    3. Rich get richer. poor get poorer

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting now and recruiting when Aerotek started is very different. Selling Aerotek services in a 2 mile radius vs having the whole state of MN is different. Competition out in the field is fierce and there are 3-5 competitors at most of our clients.

    Advice:
    Change commission structure so that recruiters and sales managers see more of the commission earlier on.

    Pros

    The corporate culture is based on the Team Rule, basically saying that you owe it to your teammates to provide feedback letting them know how they impact you. This can provide the basis for tremendous personal and professional growth. There is also the opportunity to progress into managerial and leadership roles very early in your career here. If you like to travel, drink a lot (build relationships), have a frat boy/sorority girl/collegiate athlete/professional athlete background and have little to no industry experience you could be very successful here. It is not uncommon for people to spend 10+ years in a Director level or higher and have deferred comp in excess of $1M.

    Cons

    The workforce is generally young and energetic. If you are older than 35, unless you are applying to a legal/HR/Compliance role, don't expect to get an interview. And if by chance you do get a job, don't expect to advance your career much. The leadership team operates very much like a fraternity. They will dangle advancement opportunities in front of you and give you vague feedback in an effort to break you down/change who you are. Don't be fooled, they post opportunities simply to protect themselves from discrimination/HR issues even though they already know who will be getting these positions. Further evidence of this is that despite their focus on Diversity and Inclusion, the only Diverse leadership is in either the Legal, HR or the D&I departments (ironically the exact departments that would be responsible for defending the company from a discrimination claim). All this while we thump our chest about the job not being a "40 hour/week" job. So the atmosphere can feel an awful lot like you're working your tail off in return for a lot of false hope.

    Advice to Management

    Ownership needs to look at who is leading the company. The CEO has appointed all of his buddies to SVP positions while the CFO has done the same with his Directors. You won't fix the culture by keeping the same-old-style of leader at the helm of the ship. Additionally, the company continues to create leadership opportunities thinking that this will lead to growth. Once again, we don't need more leaders, we need better ones.
