    I worked at Aquent as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    In balance, none but objectively they do have clients and can be a source of work.

    Cons

    They treat people like garbage, their supervisors can either be nice or demeaning and uncommunicative. A friend had a terrible experience where they fired him and left him in the lurch after hiring him away from a good, long-time job without an explanation or notice except that he was 'pushy'...the company he was working for was extremely disorganized. Then they treated him like a criminal and didn't allow him to say goodbye to co-workers...Instead they should have done their job and actually communicate with him about the situation, what he or the company was unhappy about and if necessary, give him a little time to leave with dignity..
    If you do end up working for them,get away from them as quickly as possible...that's my advice. And certainly don't trust them or their representatives to be in any way on your side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your contractors and employees with the same dignity, respect and kindness that you would like to be treated with. Don't have supervisors who can't be at least somewhat communicative and transmit feedback...especially since you don't want your contractors discussing things in person with their non-Aquent supervisors. And if you must fire someone, don't treat them like criminals unless they are criminals...rudeness and tearing down other people's self esteem simply because you're in a hurry and can't' be bothered to communicate isn't a good business policy.
