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

    Pros

    Great management and training material; plenty of opportunity for advancement; competitive compensation and incentives; encouraging coworkers and management; team-oriented; several work events

    Cons

    Competitive environment internally; Long hours with a low work/life balance; day-to-day activities tend to lack autonomy; seemingly moderate attrition; must be able to stay balanced; Great culture, but one that is not for everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create other positions that are associated to the recruiting process

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

    Pros

    Good market wages, challenging work. Dental & vision plans decent.

    Cons

    No vacation, holidays, or other paid time off. No match on the 401K. Terrible health (medical) plan offerings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put together a fair benefits package on your long term contract employees, say 6 months continuous billing qualifies for paid holidays, and perhaps 1 week paid vacation after a year, 2 weeks after 2 years, etc. GET a decent health plan in place at a decent price before the Federal Government forces you to and the price tag doubles.

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

    Pros

    Well -run, Highly energetic Company. I learned a lot while working there. The people are good to work with.

    Cons

    Some favoritism toward younger employees. A lot of ticky-tacky rules that the younger employees like. I found them childish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring some more experienced people and listening to them. You don't always have the answers.

    Pros

    Screen employees to verify good fit. They don't put people in jobs just to get the contract. They want a good reputation.

    Cons

    Would like to see more females in the upper management at the company. Yearly raises aren't always given regardless of performance for the consultants...more based on performance of company overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Award the good consultants.

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

    Pros

    Challenging position working with a group of fellow professionals who were all prepared to accomplish the goals and job that brought them together.

    Cons

    Hard to judge from a single project, but there didn't seem to be very much TEKsystems management support when there was zero client IT support and even active resistance.

    I would hope this is atypical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer watch on how projects are going from a budgetary standpoint so that consultants can be informed of possible changes before they occur.

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

    Pros

    While you are employed as a Consultant with TEKsystems, your recruiter or business manager (generally) maintains monthly contact with the manager of the company where you work & with you, the consultant.

    During the Christmas holidays, your recruiter or business manager has a very nice "thank you for maintaining a good image of TEKsystems & performing well on the job. It is nice to know that TEKsystems actually knows you are more than a paycheck.

    Cons

    The process of getting a new assignment starts too late, before the previous job ends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a recruiter says they will have another office contact the consultant, follow-thru & make sure that happens.
