    Pros

    Good benefits, somewhat competitive pay, team like atmosphere, management is willing to work with you on scheduling your hours. Great place to learn customer service skills and excel. Great core values within the company.

    Cons

    Have to be able to multitask at a high level. In order to be promoted you more then likely need to be in the "clique". Some people promoted to supervisors just to fill a spot rather then their capabilities leaving you in a position of knowing more then your boss. Tend to put more work on your plate then time allows you but your still blamed if your not in your goals. Expected to be at every single work event which is almost weekly. Very young company, older people(30's and up) are quite rare there. Really depends on the Assistant Controller you have on your team on the type of experience you'll have there. Too many meaningless meetings that take up your time. My advice is to speak your mind on any major issues you have but stay out of the inter office drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives should be more "in the know" of the major issues within the BOA role. Extremely high turnover rate because of certain managers making the job miserable. People often leave because pay is too low compared to the competitors and having assistant controllers that are either not involved enough with what's going on within the teams or not appreciating people that are actually in their goals every quarter. You only receive any real recognition if your favored by your AC for reasons that have nothing to do with your actual work. My supervisor(BOS) did almost nothing at all except socialize and if you needed answers to questions you were treated very rudely and made to feel as if you were bothering them. Also people get more recognition for bringing in past due/old balances rather then keeping your accounts running well and operating correctly to begin with.

    Pros

    Aerotek invests so much into the development of employees who want to be challenged, and who want to improve. There is never a dull moment because of the competitive culture and industry that we are in. We are a family in this office who motivate and support one another on a constant basis. This is hard work, but it is extremely fulfilling and provides the opportunity to have a major impact on the lives of people around you. I'm extremely thankful to be a part of this team!

    Cons

    If you are looking to get rich quick, it won't happen overnight here. After serious hard work and dedication, you will go far in this place and have uncapped income potential...yes, another pro.

    I have been working at Aerotek as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part, good coworkers, and when you have hours, they are usually 36-40 per week.

    Cons

    The contract has a set length limit, after which, a mandatory 8-week break follows. Even when that 8 weeks is up, a contract renewal is not guaranteed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having more staff reviews, as well as taking peer reviews, would ensure a more comfortable work experience.

    Pros

    Aerotek is an excellent place to learn great business skills and create a successful and lucrative career. The culture is great and the environment is very "work hard, play hard". You get what you put in with Aerotek and there is a lot of opportunity to grow and succeed.

    Cons

    This is not a place to coast, must be dedicated in order to be successful. Also, the hours are 50+ a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see more recognition of accomplishments.

    Pros

    Benefits of working at Aerotek is the harder you work the for you get out of it. The compensation is very generous and people genuinely care about your career and development.

    Cons

    A con is that we do not sell a product that can be guaranteed so sometimes unidentified factors can get in the way of a clients satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes we get caught up in constantly developing so we could highlight some of the things we are doing well more often.
