I worked at TEKsystems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Invests heavily in training new employees, great place to learn the craft of recruiting, great place to make professional friends and contacts. You can make mid-high 6 figure total comp.

Cons

Greedy corporate leadership, year over year revenues and profits hit all time highs yet they continue to shrink incentives and compensation. They are run from Baltimore and local Directors typically are puppets. They require you to sell from their "portfolio" of services and lack creativity in crafting or delivering solutions. Typically this is what the client wants, something that is different than every other staffing/ services company out there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop squeezing your hard working and loyal employees, stop running the company like an 'ol boys club. The Western regional VP is out of touch, rude and arrogant, he is the urban dictionary definition of a "frat boy".

    Better than your average body shop

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

    Pros

    More than the usual collection of employee benefits for a company like this, entry into large organizations, no overtime constraints. My contacts there were responsive to my needs.

    Cons

    High billing overhead - client also viewed them as being expensive. Poor healthcare insurance options (but not unusual in a body shop like this), morale of Tek System's own employees could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve healthcare insurance options. You pass along costs in any event, so why not provide more comprehensive policies?
