    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    TekSystems has lot of contacts with clients all over the country and can offer you really good opportunities. They were there when I started my career.

    Cons

    In my case they have a 55% cut (they give me $35 when they get $75 from the client). On top of that I took my last day off and they did not pay me for that. I bet you all the positive ratings on glass door are fake. I have so many friends who hate TekSystems and want to leave TekSystems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more ethical

    Not a company for seasoned professionals

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They do a great job training recent college grads.

    Cons

    They are too set in their ways. No grey areas. They only no how to handle and operate issues in a standardized manner. Seasoned professional sales people don't need a clicker to count calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote seasoned staff who know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Regular paychecks, once a month lunch.

    Cons

    The account manager laughed when I talked about negotiating the pay rate to what I wanted which I found unprofessional. If you turn in the resignation, they don't seem to care to keep you. Not much growth. They just care about the pay cheque and keeping the client happy. If you are unhappy at your job, they just expect you to do the job and ignore the rest instead of helping you find another that would keep you happy.

    Pros

    You get to eat for free.

    Cons

    They try to do plenty of happy hours to make up for the horrible pay and benefits.The company is based on the employee who is liked the most. With that being said if your not with an account manager who cares about your success. You will never promote. High attrition within the company. Unsteady pay meaning you can be six figures after 3 years and in one day you can drop back to the initial pay 30k. Micromanage is an understatement. Office full of gossip. You dont promote unless someone go and tells the DBO how great you are. Meaning you can have a better track record and someone whose numbers isnt half as good as you will promote because of them speaking up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None they know that this is a pyramid scheme.

    Pros

    The family atmosphere is amazing. There is no work culture like it. Everyone is understanding and works together in a team collaboration. There is competition but it is friendly competition. The money that can be made here is totally up to how much work you put in and what you do with your time.The opportunities are limitless with this company they are always creating new positions!

    Cons

    It is a true roller coaster ride. As long as you celebrate the WINS and push through adversity you can handle this great opportunity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push us to the next level. Don't let us be complacent. There is always another level we can achieve.

    Pros

    Paycheck - when it was done correctly!. This may be a good "staffing agency" to work for when terms are less than a year.

    Cons

    Teksystems is not interested in careeer growth. Their main focus is billing the clients and profiting from your hard work. For contract terms greater than a year I would suggest not accepting the assignment. Be sure to get your contract-to-perm in writing! Actually make sure you get everything in writing which includes overtime, benefits, and salary increases....
