    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary, good office culture and work- life balance. Company core values are good and I feel employee friendly.

    Cons

    Have an image of HR consultancy which hurts core technical employees some times. Don't see much of recreation programs for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus needed on improving employee skills by arranging more training, etc.

    Fantastic employer....abysmally poor benefits

    I have been working at TEKsystems as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been with TEKsystems as a business analyst for 13 months placed with KY's Commonwealth Office of Technology. The Louisville, KY, office is staffed with professionals who are pleasant and helpful. They do care for their contractors and have an extremely favorable reputation with the state.

    If you can deal with the 'Cons' listed below, TEKsystems is the best firm to get you placed with the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Most of their people have been with the state for years.

    NOTE: concerning my rating for "Compensation & Benefits": the neutral score is based on benefits...not compensation.

    Cons

    The benefits...the benefits...the benefits. Nothing is standard: if you want paid holidays or PTO, you have to come down in salary. Their health insurance is the issue for me. I need good coverage that doesn't cost 1/4th of my monthly gross salary.

    I will be leaving them next month; not because I want to, but I lose my health insurance coverage from an previous employer at the end of August.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strongly urge you to re-think your benefit package. In today's world of health insurance law, you MUST do better to keep good people.

    I have been working at TEKsystems part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A positive work environment where I was surrounded by people who loved what they were doing. An ethical and people oriented company with an amazing support system

    Cons

    You will work long, hard hours to move up in the company. It takes a lot of commitment and determination but if you stick with it you'll be gold.

    Very pleasant recruiters.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The recruiters I worked with were very pleasant and professional. I never felt pressured to take an interview that I didn't want to take. They would give reasons why I should, but I never felt bullied, like with some other recruiting agencies.

    Cons

    Some of the account reps weren't as thorough as some of the others. One in particular kept telling me how busy she was. I didn't need to hear her issues, I needed to find a job.

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Once you have established yourself as an asset to any customer, TEKsystems will try to keep you employed with future assignments

    Cons

    They didn't seem interested in finding a more suitable role to meet my qualifications while I was actively on assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a career path for contractors rather than keep them at the same level and place within different companies.

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor

    Pros

    Good support from the recruiters. One of the few contract houses that provides benefits. Not the greatest benefits but definitely better than nothing.

    Cons

    Management doesn't value the employees enough. Responses to annual surveys ignore or gloss over the main concerns of employees and focus on minor stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are your primary asset and they are not a captive audience.

    Normal Job hunting company, pay is less than you would recieve if you were hired outright.
