    I have been working at Aquent full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    True work/life balance, incredibly friendly and supportive colleagues, great benefits, leadership with integrity.

    Cons

    The one con could be a pro depending on how you like to work... things change quickly at Aquent. If you enjoy working in a dynamic environment, quickly iterating through ideas and course correcting on the fly, you'll love it it here!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Aquent full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love that our SalCons have identical benefits to our internal staff, specifically the choice of 3 healthcare plans, 401k match, gym reimbursement and tuition reimbursement. I really believe that the way you treat your employees tells a lot about if you care about their work. Aquent cares very much for their talent. I love that I get to bounce sometimes crazy ideas off of my Aquent and VitaminT coworkers and we can collaborate to make a solution for each talent, customer, team, the list goes on. Most recently, I was able to accept a dual role by being a part of the Account Teams and the Shared Services teams. This is important to me because I can stay connected to the front lines and the sales organization of our business while reaching to our back office teams and driving efficiencies, best practices, etc. It is the best of both worlds for me.

    Cons

    No downsides that I can think of at the moment.

    I worked at Aquent full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All tools and resources, training and mentorship is provided for you to succeed. Great base pay, plus commission for sales roles. Team atmosphere. I worked on the Vitamin T side... leadership is amazing. You must perform and earn your keep. I unfortunately, caught on to things too late but was given ample time to get ramped up, they were extremely patient. Truly care about their employees.great work life balance.

    Cons

    WeWork space was terrible but they were working on fixing that prior to COVID19.
