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

Pros

Once you have established yourself as an asset to any customer, TEKsystems will try to keep you employed with future assignments

Cons

They didn't seem interested in finding a more suitable role to meet my qualifications while I was actively on assignment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be nice to have a career path for contractors rather than keep them at the same level and place within different companies.

    Not for everyone. If you liked fraternities or sororities in college and you want that same atmosphere in your career, you'll have it in all levels at TEKsystems.

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time

    Pros

    1. TEKsystems will promise you the world... And you may or may not be successful... It's dependent on the following factors:
    The account that you recruit for, the skillset you recruit for, the market you are in, how your manager helps you, and how "smart" not "hard" you work

    Cons

    Long hours, micromanagement at the utmost level, 15 inputs you are tracked on weekly and certain inputs should have a higher emphasis over others, if you want to get ahead, suck up to the dbo and the other account managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your tenured employees that they know what they are doing and stop micromanaging everyone - it gets real old and it's driving top talent out of your company. Offer an equal commission structure for both AMs and recruiters. It takes two to tango and in today's market it's much easier to grab positions to work on than it is to find available consultants or consultants that are working full-time to be interested in contract work. Stop being so arrogant in the fact that we are the biggest and the best! Many times, it turns our clients off especially when we offer them top talent quickly and don't deliver on that talent. It makes us look like complete fools and our rep goes down the tubes.
