    Pros

    Fantastische inwerkperiode, goed gestructureerd L&D departement, veel mogelijkheden om te groeien in je carrière en je salaris, teams zijn toegewijd en heel ondersteunend voor elkaar, verkoopsdoelstellingen zijn haalbaar. Je wordt verwacht hard en lang te werken, maar dat loont als je begaan bent met je job. Geweldige plaats om je verkoopsfundamenten op te bouwen rond elke discipline (account management, recruitment en business development). Dit is een verkoopsjob, dus er wordt van je verwacht jezelf tot je limieten te duwen. Dat is waar je voor getekend hebt. Als je daar niet klaar voor bent, ga er dan niet voor.

    Excellent induction period, well structured L&D department, many opportunities to grow your career and salary, teams are committed and very supportive to each other, sales targets are within reach. You are expected to work hard and long hours, but it pays of if you commit. Great place to build your sales foundation over every discipline (account managent, recruitment and business development) This is a sales job, so pushing yourself to the max is what is expected and what you sign up for. If you are not up for this, then don't go for it.

    Cons

    HR departement is vatbaar voor druk van het management, geheimen zullen niet bewaard blijven. Nadat Allegis Aston Carter verwierf, verdwenen veel van de waarden en methodologieën die het bedrijf geweldig maakten. Lokaal management is onderontwikkeld. Ze verwerven deze positie vanwege bereikte verkoopsdoelstellingen, hun engagement en werkethiek, maar niet vanwege hun capaciteiten qua leiderschap, management of het sociale aspect.

    HR department is receptive to pressure from management, secrets will not be kept. After Allegis acquired Aston Carter many of the values and work methodologies which made the company great disappeared. Local management is underdeveloped. They acquire these position due to sales targets being met, their commitment and work ethic, but not because of their social, management or leadership capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Probeer de Aston Carter waarden te behouden!

    Try to maintain Aston Carter's values!

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

    Pros

    Aston Carter is the accounting and finance division of Aerotek. Aerotek is a HUGE and well known Recruiting firm and the Aston Carter division has been around for around 3 years now. Whats great about that is you get a start up feel with a huge company supporting you. Its really the best of both worlds.

    In the position you recruit on accounting and finance positions. Once you perfect recruiting you are put into different classes to help you move into a Account Manager position. The cool part is it doesn't matter how long you have been with the company. If you are producing you will get promoted within a year over the person who has been recruiting for two. If you like to work hard and see a fast return its a great entry level position!

    Cons

    Down side it is a lot of hours. But luckily the culture really makes up for it. The people here are what makes working a little bit of longer hours worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what youre doing. I have never seen a director that cares and wants to see his people succeed more than Tyler Ellis.
