    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor (more than an 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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The recruiters maintain good contact with consultants and reward them free lunches every so often. They do have a good client base.

    Cons

    Lack of training. Need to conduct workshops and offer training to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up your current policy of interacting closely with consultants. Conduct workshops and upgrade people's skills so that you can market them easily.

    Former Employee - Implementation Field Engineer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had great experiences with TEKsytems. They were very professionally staffed, well trained and communicated quickly and effectively to any and all needs I would have while on a job site. My recruiter was always on top of her game. They did a very good job at getting me working in my desired fields within Wireless technology and implementation. They also pushed to get me the monetary requirements I desired.

    Cons

    Only problem I encountered was being placed with a group of four guys for a project, and one was a 'bad apple'. His behavior and attitude had us all dismissed within the first two days. It was an embarrassing experience, myself and two others were working hard and doing our jobs, yet we were let go. (TEKSystems did do a decent job of making sure that wouldn't happen again. They found me more work quickly).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When picking people for jobs, remember a knucklehead is always a knucklehead and a performer is always a performer.
