I worked at Aquent as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Aquent hired me to work on a web content migration project. This got my foot in the door with them, but also with web services in general. It paid far better than previous temp gigs, and the work was substantive.

Cons

There were gaps between gigs. Of recent, they have not been as accessible or responsive. I have updated my online profile several times and my agent never approved it. Also, the job selection they've been posting on their site hasn't been great.

Advice to Management

I don't have any because I have no interaction with upper management.

    I worked at Aquent as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably friendly and efficient, they contacted me and got me a couple solid contracts.

    Cons

    Somewhat limited clientele. Also, when they were Sakson and Taylor they threatened to sue me for breach of contract because I didn't work the full length of a contract with them. No issues with that sort of nonsense since they went to Aquent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep expanding the network in the northwest.

    I have been working at Aquent full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Recruiters and resource managers are generally nice. Environment is good at the position they placed me in and in general it seems like they care about my well being.

    Cons

    They take a large cut of your money like most staffing agencies do.
    Benefits are only ok.
    No vacation time.
    No bonuses for hours worked.
    No sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees sick days and vacation so they can continue making you free money.
