My job at HP was great but has nothing to do with Aquents abilities.
Microsoft Logo Certification Test Engineer at HP (Former Employee), Houston, Tx.January 30, 2015
Cons: you'll never hear from them again once you're hired.
Once your recruiter places you into a position you'll never see or hear from him again. You have to ask for raises yourself or better positions because Aquent will not do it for you. All Aquent wants is to reap the money they receive from placing you in a position. You are just a number to them.

Very smart and innovative company
Large Accounts Operations Manager (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 22, 2015
The leaders within Aquent are very smart and strategic at leveraging their employees' strengths; giving them opportunities to use them and challenge them with projects that make them feel fulfilled and impact the company overall.

Aquent has great internal initiatives to acknowledge hard work and innovation. They want to make sure the culture is a place that is enjoyable for everyone.

Aquent provided excellent support through a very difficult assignment.
Communications Consultant (Former Employee), Portland, ORJanuary 19, 2015
Pros: access to great advice from my contract agent
Cons: a truly confusing leadership structure on the client side that thwarted excellent results, but we managed!
Aquent as a staffing agency was terrific. The client situation was the most challenging I've seen, but for me it was an excellent learning environment that I wouldn't have missed.

My co-workers were outstanding, but the reduction-in-force that I walked into after day six was very tough.

There was never a typical day, but it was so satisfying to continue to push through and make things happen amid chaos. I felt like I provided some stability and I truly helped through the changes.

terrible place to work
Operations Coordinator/Receptionist (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJanuary 13, 2015
This place has a horrible culture. The management has unfair expectations and plays favorites with certain employees and if you're not in the "cool club" then your job is definitely not secure.

Good company, but I'm looking for steady employment.
Freelance Web/Graphic Design (Current Employee), Philadelphia PAJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: work when i want
Cons: most positions are temporary
This is a good company but most of the work I do is piece work as a Freelancer. All the work is temporary and I'm looking for steady work. Although old, please note that I have an Associate Degree as a Medical Assistant.

Great People, Uncertain Strategy
Project Manager (Current Employee), Boston, MANovember 5, 2014
Pros: managers trust their employees, great vacation plan, solid benefits.
Cons: upper management strategy changes more than it could/should.
I started as a temporary contractor, and ended up at the company 2 years and counting.

The employees are smart and talented, but are sometimes hampered by frequent changes in direction (without clear data backing these decisions).

Small Company
Large Accounts Operations Manager (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 17, 2014
Aquent thinks it is a large company but they have a small company mentality. I just did not enjoy the working environment I was in.

Productive and Fun Working Placement
Web Data Analyst at Microsoft (Contract) (Former Employee), Bellevue, WAFebruary 18, 2014
Aquent gave me the great opportunity to work for a technical company, such as Microsoft, as a Web Data Analyst. This job helped me in improving my communication skills with my team, being more familiar with Microsoft Outlook and working constantly on the DRI platform that I used to do my work. One enjoyable part of the job is we had a ping pong table to play around and share laughers. This helped in resting my mind and bonding more with my coworkers. A challenging par of the job was attending our judgment meetings to discuss and decided on finalizing queries.
