      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.

      Work/life balance not ideal, but you will gain knowledge to take to your next role

      Pros

      Work hard/Play hard culture- they celebrate successes and milestones, feedback-rich environment (you are expected to give & receive feedback from peers and supervisors), uncapped commission based on number of placements + weekly hours contractors worked, you meet some really great people

      Cons

      Work schedule- you will work 50 hours/week MINIMUM (7:30a-5:30pm), you will essentially be on-call 24/7 and need to be available after hours for contractor questions, you never know when you'll have to stay late to fill positions, the burnout is REAL- high turnover in the "pit" of recruiters, if contractors don't work for whatever reason, you don't get paid that commission

      Great experience, great people, can make a lot of money but very rare

      Cons

      It's a never ending rat race, its like you're running as fast as you can everyday but you're on a treadmill going nowhere and they constantly try to hype you up and "motivate you" so you you don't realize it.
