Pros

Cowokers are typically all A type, similar personalities. The long hours are almost bearable when you are surrounded by an office full of your friends

Cons

TekSystems is successful because they prey on new grads (who do not know any better), and offer them the world. They work you 55 hours a week minimum, and hound you if you come in later than 7:30 am or leave before 6pm. There are weekend "optional" hours, but they aren't optional if you want to keep your job.

When I finally had enough of the abuse (a year and a half later), and attempted to put my two weeks in, they were very unprofessional and beat me down about my lack of commitment to the company and cause (who knows what the "cause" is).

I left in late 2013, along with about half of my office - Teksystems has sued a multitude of my previous co-workers for their "non-compete" clauses, and made it VERY hard for local recruiters to get a job with anyone but them. I strongly recommend not accepting a job with TEK as a recruiter or sales person.

Advice to Management

Stop suing your past employees, and forcing people to work weekends.

    Pros

    The recruiters maintain good contact with consultants and reward them free lunches every so often. They do have a good client base.

    Cons

    Lack of training. Need to conduct workshops and offer training to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your current policy of interacting closely with consultants. Conduct workshops and upgrade people's skills so that you can market them easily.


  2. They work to get you working, in tech.

    Pros

    I had great experiences with TEKsytems. They were very professionally staffed, well trained and communicated quickly and effectively to any and all needs I would have while on a job site. My recruiter was always on top of her game. They did a very good job at getting me working in my desired fields within Wireless technology and implementation. They also pushed to get me the monetary requirements I desired.

    Cons

    Only problem I encountered was being placed with a group of four guys for a project, and one was a 'bad apple'. His behavior and attitude had us all dismissed within the first two days. It was an embarrassing experience, myself and two others were working hard and doing our jobs, yet we were let go. (TEKSystems did do a decent job of making sure that wouldn't happen again. They found me more work quickly).

    Advice to Management

    When picking people for jobs, remember a knucklehead is always a knucklehead and a performer is always a performer.
