    Pros

    Global reach offing a wide range of services to the largest clients. The company supports it's contractors well and provides a reasonable range of benefits, including a robust online training and continuing education offering.

    Cons

    I was expecting periodic performance reviews which didn't materialize.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct periodic performance reviews in concert with the client employer as an important feedback mechanism toward insuring excellence in service delivery.

    Pros

    Great training of business accumen
    Strong company values around partnership and teamwork

    Cons

    Compensation is not commensorate with hours worked or time put in
    Internal career paths are limited in a very large organization

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the large network of operating companies to create better career paths for employees
    Analyze current market trends for the salaries paid and pay market rates to new college graduates, you are already pulling this data just apply it to internal employees
    Acknowledge that company cultures change and evolve and be open to evolving as a company more; just because the way the company had been run made some people successful doesn't not mean it is necessarily still the same way to make most people in the company successful

    Pros

    They find companies that are looking for temporary workers and bring you to them. Makes the job search much easier.

    Cons

    Most work is contract based so once the contract ends they have to find you a new position.

    Pros

    I spent more than a decade working at TEKsystems in a variety of different roles. The work is hard and the hours can be long. The opportunity is endless and the company is filled with wonderful people who believe in a single vision and abide by a set of core values. Nothing is given to you but there is no limit to what can be earned and how far you can go. If you have a desire to have your hard work pay off you will like it here.

    Cons

    Like any large company there are some folks in positions of authority who can be a challenge. This should not encourage new employees as they will not encounter executives in their daily work lives. That having been said it's the best company in IT service and staffing industry. I've recently left after 15+ years with a high regard for the company and no regrets about the time I spent there.

    Advice to Management

    Live your core values at every level, from the entry level to the very top.

    Pros

    Lots of training and exposure to recruiting. Really great first job out of college if you want to do sales. Great base pay plus commission.

    Cons

    Commission can drop very easily. Lots of high volume cold calling. Everyone there wants to get into sales and not recruiting careers. Really long hours. Expect to work 60 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a more diverse set of people. The only people I work with party downtown every weekend, drink, and go to sporting events. Not much variety in the people there.
