    I worked at Aquent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There really are no pros in this company.

    Cons

    It helped me stay employed at Disney longer

    Advice to Management

    They really need to focus on finding EVERYONE work. I realize that since I was entry-mid level they did not care to find me any placement. I moved and contacted an Aquent rep in my area and they never responded back to me.

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

    Pros

    Compared to other contractors at my work location where 3 others are from other agencies, Aquent seems the best. Their health care pkg is better than what most companies offer to full-time employees. Low cost health care plan w/ a major health care provider, HSA, Commuter SA etc.
    And they pay to their contractors weekly.

    Cons

    Other agency people get paid on company holidays (Christmas, July 4th, Thanksgiving etc.). But Aquent doesn't. If you are assigned to a work place w/ Christmas and New Years week shut down, for example, you don't get paid for 1 to 1.5 weeks. Financially tough holiday season...At least, they should pay to long-term contractors when Aquent offices are closed for holidays because we work for them 40 hrs a week too.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nicer if they offer 401K matching.
