Company reviews
"Innovative placement agency for design related professionals. "
Former EmployeeGraphic Artist
Experience is totally related to the company in which you are placed. I had several terrible short term placements, two excellent longterm placements. The negative ones used you to do boring work, or not much of anything. The great ones would start you off with lower level tasks, but would move you into creative projects once they saw what you were capable of. Aquent itself was fine to work with, I received benefits. My experience with them ended several years ago.
