    Pros

    TEK has a great culture! It's a work hard, play hard environment and the company does do things to keep you happy! They have an annual "contest" for those that hit their goals with a good bonus structure and incentive trip to Cancun annually. They will hire those with little/no experience with the right attitude and competitive background. The President understands the roles within the company because he started in the same roles that a new hire would do. The company is growing and there are a lot of opportunities in new products and services.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard to shut off work and go home. Selling Staffing is a difficult product. TEK's product is people, and people can change their mind. In order to be successful, you have to be able to deal with highs and lows of the job. The benefits they offer are expensive (high premiums and deductibles). There are a lot of changes in the compensation structure which are usually not for the better. There is a big push for "sacrifice" for the greater good mentality and a lot of changes creating a very silo'd organization and dissections of territories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constant push for activity and micro-management is exhausting.

    Pros

    Everyone is professional at TEKsystems. They only hire the best. Working as a contractor is an excellent way to gain experience.

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to expect professionalism and excellence from all employees.

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

    Pros

    My recruiter, delivery lead, and coordinator were all GREAT! They were honest with me upfront about my short term contract and the small percentage of contractors who actually get converted to full-time employees. I was lucky and did get converted and am very pleased! I am grateful to TEKsystems and all they did for me!

    Cons

    Receiving PTO as a contractor is rare and a wonderful benefit that TEKsystems offers, however the health insurance offered has room for improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communications open.

    Pros

    TekSystems (Independence Ohio) seems to have a direct relationship with certain companies which make it easier to get hired. I initially used another recruiting company to try to get a position at a Financial company in Downtown Cleveland. I did not get a call back from that Recruiting company. I then went Through Mike D. at TekSystems of Independence Ohio and he got me an interview very quickly at the same Downtown Company, and I was offered the position about a week later, also at a higher hourly rate than I had expected. TekSystems has one of their reps introduce you to the hiring manager on the day of your interview. They also have the rep meet you in the lobby on your first day on the job to introduce you to your immediate report. Follow up and communication throughout the process is great also.

    Cons

    None...keep up the good work

    Pros

    Most of the recruiters will really try to find a fit for your skill set instead of just over selling you to get you in. They will have you do an adaptive skill test which is not easy but ensures that you have the skills to do the job. They move quickly in the process.

    Cons

    Sometimes you talk to several recruiters about the same position.

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

    Pros

    Better clients, better pay. Recruiters are friendly and professional, not sketchy sales types you see at other places. All the gigs they sent me on were at good, solid (i.e. not sketchy) companies.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints about this company. They've been professional and responsive with me for as long as I've been working with them. But even though it's great that they offer any benefits at all -- basic health insurance, personal days -- given the nature of the job, I wish there was one more personal day in the calendar.

    Pros

    The people I work with in the office and in the field are the best thing. I meet some amazing people that make IT move to business forward and fortunate enough to help. My company is great and we truly strive to serve others in everything. We of course make a profit, but they require us to do it the right way. We are not allowed to cut corners or drop our quality process with our clients and consultants. The hours can be long, but the rewards are great and you are putting the hours in with great people that make the time go by. Compensation is good but it has to be earned.

    Cons

    Some of what we do becomes overwhelming with busy work. We seem to have quite a bit of redundant task and busy work that keep us from doing what is important at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not forget that most clients buy because of the AM and we need to spend more time with them instead of in the office doing busy work. There needs to be more towards our retirement and especially benefits. Especially our consultant benefits need to be improved more than anything.

    Pros

    Everyone was very helpful and nice and wanted each other to succeed. I enjoyed meeting every single one of them. Management was friendly as well.

    Cons

    Small office space for such an important company a lot going on in one room with really no privacy. Long hours but are worth it.
