    Pros

    The people at Teksystems will take care of you, and you have no problems with getting paid or benefits. And they are honest.

    Cons

    Sometimes dealing with the state, they did not follow up as needed, and you can find yourself without a contract for periods of time. And they will not offer any type of compensation to make up for your time lost.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of contracts and upcoming deadlines. Never leave an employee without work for weeks at a time, and if you do, at least offer them minimum wage while they wait to have contract paperwork completed and signed

    Pros

    Great culture, filled with people that care not only about your professional growth, but your personal as well. The company offerings have also matured.

    Cons

    In the Bay Area, the turnover is not surpisingly high. Challenge is retaining people that are so highly sought after by "sexy" companies. Management sometimes to quick to promote inexperienced people.

    Pros

    Prompt feedback after the interview, they have deep industry and decision makers' relationships, typically is a preferred vendor at a client site.

    Cons

    More frequent feedback and check ins needed, did not check on me about my loss of a Business Analyst resource, how this impacted me as the PM. Can be slow to resolve contract issues, which happened to my BA.
