    I worked at Aerotek full-time for more than a year

    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.

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

    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.

    I worked at Aerotek as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Immediate placement. I was employed by Aerotek almost steadily for 4 years. The first position didn't last long, then I had about 2 months of unemployment. The last placement I had with them lasted about 3 years. I have since moved, but if I needed an employment agency, I would choose Aerotek.

    Cons

    As with all employment agencies, there can be periods of not working.

    Pros

    Easy way to get a job, they're very understanding with anything that happens, and they work with you to help you and their client.

    Cons

    You're a temp employee. The usual- uncertainty with jobs, sometimes you get a crap job, etcetera
