    Pros

    Company offers courses to retrain or learn new skills. Some health benefits. Large company that can offer employment across projects.

    Cons

    No overtime work. Lowballed offers during recruiting/hiring. Quasi-legal hiring practices in terms of 'non-compete' clauses in previous contracts. Poor handling of lay-offs, contract termination, and requesting time off.

    Inept management teams that have no specific knowledge of the tasks they are managing. Too many managers: who is the point of contact? who is responsible for what? who is permanent and who is temporary?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue! Maybe familiarize yourself with what we do before offering advice on how to do it better. Corporate speak during meetings is totally unconstructive and a waste of time. Also, learn how to lay people off respectfully, this was entirely botched twice in the last week.

    Pros

    Good on-boarding and training program, good bonuses and commission structure, benefits are offered but expensive, most people in the company are young and money hungry which can promote healthy competition among recruiters and account managers.

    Cons

    You are expected to have a "servant mentality" (their words, not mine) to the company, your clients and consultants. You are expected to work overtime every day (your on salary, so no extra pay) and they constantly remind you that you should be working nights and weekends from home. So, basically no work or life balance.

    The company's retention rate is poor across the board and if you are a successful recruiter your only option is to become an account manager and start over again and you actually take a pay cut just to be promoted. Their company culture is a joke, senior management expects too much and rewards recruiters with too little.

    Your job is essentially to source and find the top technical professionals in the world and get them to do a job for as little as possible, which TEK charges double that rate to the company to hire that person - so the only person that wins is TEK. It's a very profitable business model, but not one you can stand by if you actually have morales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer greater compensation to recruiters and consultants.
