    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.

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have grown both personally and professionally since starting my career at TEKsystems. The mentorship and coaching received from leadership, my director, and account manager is amazing. I have learned how to have tough conversations with anyone since this is a feedback (good or bad) friendly environment. Great opportunity for growth and excellent training. You arent going to be fired because you didn't hit a number for the week- quality>quantity.

    On the culture side- my office is amazing. I love coming to work because of the people I work with- I have made life long friends here. Dynamic and fun culture and competitive environment.

    Cons

    Comission structure and occassional long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation should compete with the Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter type companies so turnover isn't so high.

    Great people, too much process

    I have been working at TEKsystems

    Pros

    Great people to work with internally. Focus on the relationship between the account manager/recruiter, team mentality, commitment, and help people grow personally and professionally.

    Cons

    They haven't increased the base salary in 10 years. Created "sunset spread" to reduce the commission pay in hope to increase the # of placements for recruiters. Long hours. Over complicate the recruiting process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the base and pay your CSAs more.
