    I have been working at First Tek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, reasonable benefits. Great staff in the Portland office. They talk to me regularly. They take me for lunch, great Christmas party end of the year.

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office is in Portland downtown. It costs to park and get to office. It will be great if the office is located out of downtown.

    I have been working at First Tek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I think that the pay is reasonable, there is a fair amount of development and training, and management is pretty understanding about different things that come up in life. I found them to have generally sound connections in the field and their business strategy to seem smart and make me comfortable being a part of the organization.

    Cons

    Pay isn't too remarkable however really not that bad in this economy. Like everyone in the world I obviously would hope for more but I would rate the salary as moderate all things considered. More worrying is unsure opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow clear path for employees to grow, take the guesswork out of it. I have also heard this may be in the cards for the future but expanding into defense and public work would be a great boon to the organization. As much strife as exists in washington there is still money to be made on defense contracts and the like.

    Pros

    Very competetive pay and benefits. It was easy to get started. I was looking for contracting opportunity in St louis and they contacted me and placed me at one of their client. Recruiter was honest and helped me with every step.

    They dont have a huge presance in Mid west.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
