It is a privately held company and a fun place to work and make money if you don't mind long hours.

Pros

The potential for making money is available. The average starting base is $30k but you can negotiate a higher salary with previous experience. From personal experience and other co-workers $35k-$45k is salary you could negotiate but only for 1 year then you go to a $30k base. And you don't get your commission until you exceed your negotiated base pay of X. Make sure they explain how the "Guaranteed Commission" works and factors into your commission.

Cons

Long hours you first year to build your network and then long hours after that year to maintain your commission. The health benefits are horrible.

Advice to Management

Good leadership, everyone in a leadership position has been a recruiter and understands the frustrations. Everyone starts at the bottom and works their way up.

    Pros

    TEKsystems truely cares about people, their careers, and lives. Operations within TEKsystems is a lot like a hard working family. The sales and recruiters work toward common goals and believe in the value they add to technical professionals and it's customers.

    Cons

    Any time you work with people as a product you have to deal with the human element. Recruiters in general are given a bad stigma because of the fact that there are bad recruiters out there. TEKsystems is an ethical company that believes in the true concept of adding value. Some candidates have been burnt in the past and this lack of trust in the industry leads to self motivated miscommunication between sales and technical professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire the best people with good work ethic and strong social/competitive drive.

    Pros

    Paid every week. Bonuses and profit sharing checks. The on boarding process was great for the first two weeks, which sucks you into their "Core Values".

    Cons

    After you have bought into the con of their "Core Values", you think that you have actually stumbled onto a great company, but your just not paid enough. However, sometimes if the atmosphere is good and there are other benefits, you over look the low pay. Unfortunately, you become a robot. It's somewhat like being in basic training for the military. You are now no longer to think for yourself. If you disagree with upper management, be prepared to find your job posted online. I know of people who have gone to HR because of the unfair treatment and, HR ignored their complaints and concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Because the corporate office is a small office, there needs to be a third party involved with complaints and concerns, because if an employee has disagreed with management, they are reprimanded or encouraged to quit. There needs to be a neutral party making HR decisions because they are very biased, and look out for their "friends" instead of handling the issues at hand or trying to prevent a lawsuit.
