"Incredibly weak leadership, VERY political, personality driven environment. How/who gets promoted is mysterious and based on connections, rather than capability or skill set. If you do not enjoy a&&-kissing, probably not a good choice for you. Company has an extremely disposable attitude toward employees - downsizings are frequent and brutal. Higher level - VP, etc positions are sweet, if you can get them but very hard to do, if you are not a subject of the crown."

"I worked for Aerotek Inc. until 2002 and have loved every minute of it. A great company that takes care of their employees. I was compensated very well and would love nothing more than to return to their company."

"This is a good company if you have zero positions of experience in your CV. Gives the impression how work in big place looks like. Hard to become a perm worker, hard to get promotion, but if you achieve it remember - grade change does not mean better salary (it could be even worse). Impossible to have external training (constant budget cuts), impossible to travel - no one can go."
