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

    Pros

    - Excellent professional development
    - Can make a lot of money
    - Can become a manager in 2 years
    - Work with some large name clients

    Cons

    - Long Hours! You work from 7:30am - 6pm. Leaving before 6pm is frowned upon.
    - Some of the younger Account Managers and Recruiter Leads act like high schoolers and have no idea how to manage recruiters. They set their own staff up for failure

    Advice to Management

    Train some of your younger Account Managers and Recruiter Leads to actually be good leaders. Some have no clue how to lead and completely shut themselves off.
    Some Recruiter Leads love to gossip. Instead of helping out new recruiters, they talk badly about them behind their backs of how they are just going to fail. Of course they're going to fail if you have no faith in them and cannot train them properly to do their jobs right.

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

    Pros

    The pay rate is decent and you can have some great leaders that you work with.

    Cons

    There can be a lack of work/life balance and a power struggle when it comes to authority. Higher level management can throw their title around and forget that it is the people that work under them that allow them to be great and hit their goals. Also depending on the division and office you are in will greatly determine your success in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you started from and don't do anything you do not want done to you.
