    Pros

    They employ the best training program targeted specifically at inexperienced new graduates. Difficult to get hired, it's fairly competitive, but they offer the best expertise and training program in the country. They are very sales oriented so if you're interested in Sales, they will give you the tools and the opportunity you need to succeed. The company is very organized, management is helpful and they have all the best tools at their disposal (training, software etc) They also drill very good work ethic and organization skills into you.

    Cons

    The hours are long! The expectation is that you spend atleast 10 hours a day at work. They monitor your performance carefully and the goals they set are not achievable in a 40 hour work week.

    Pros

    - Learn a lot about industry trends and skills
    - Strong desire to develop talent
    - Pushes your comfort zone

    Cons

    - Hours are long....way to long
    - The commission is nice, but other agencies pay out more
    - It is a what have you done for me lately environment. They don't care about the work you did that helped them a few months ago. Don't hit your target now? Your job is in jeopardy.
    - Young people managing young people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more. There is a reason there is a high turnover rate there. You work people way to hard.

    Pros

    If you are a dedicated individual, there is much money to be made at a very young age, and very quickly. That being said, this is only accomplished by a few people.

    Cons

    Aerotek tries to make the culture feel like a business but it isn't really a traditional business. Many people are brought in with no experience at all, and the work is not very interesting. Sometimes, being assigned to a certain division can 'trap' you as some divisions make much more revenue than others.

    Pros

    Great training and development.
    Young, fun, vibrant environment.

    Cons

    If you are looking to be a professional recruiter you will be at Aerotek for 2 years or less. There is no room for recruiter development, only sales people are compensated well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a recruiting agency, great job at developing recruiters but you need to figure out how to retain people who want to recruit vs go into sales.

    It is a demanding environment that will progress people in a professional career or weed them out.

    Pros

    Good jobs are available and a lot are temp to hire

    Cons

    Most are temp to hire, but possible to move up to permanent according to the company's expectations, but since it is a temp service, must pay for benefits.

    Pros

    I have the fortune of being a part of this dynamic team and culture. Having been with the company for well over 10 years I have experienced exponential growth as an individual and have participated in growing the company on many levels. If you are enterprising, have a positive attitude, strong wrok ethic and can give/take feedback this is the place for you.

    Cons

    I really have very few. It is tough to see people leave who have not taken advantage of the opportunity provided for them. Our 401K is not a strength at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The recruiter I worked with seemed to care about finding me a position that fit me. The company paid me a decent starting wage and I did get paid for holidays.

    Cons

    I did have some problems finding out what the company's policies were regarding holiday pay and if I got paid for my lunch breaks but other then that I was happy with the company.

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great people, a young group. You learn a lot about sales.

    Cons

    Very strict with making numbers, call, spread, and over all Under a lot of stress to procure numbers, calls, commission, every person learns their own way. If you are not the cut-out for Aerotek they will drop you, but you do walk away with a lot of knowledge.
