    The benefits are not the greatest and perks are few.

    Pros

    Good benefits for a consulting company and professionally run sales and administration departments.

    Cons

    Pay was lower compared to my background. This was due to competative nature of consulting position at the time and the restriction with company involved.

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I can find absolutely nothing positive to say about TekSystems.

    Cons

    They lie about giving you a raise so you'll stay on the project. They did nothing to stop nor prevent hostile work environments. At the end of the job, after I applied for unemployment, they lied to unemployment to try to prevent my getting unemployment benefits, and after ODJFS allowed my unemployment, they've since filed an appeal. They can't be bothered to communicate to prospective contractors, and during the project I worked with for them, even though I provided ample evidence of hostile work conditions (including the report of a Lead), they not only did nothing, but had the gall to lie to us about giving us raises if we'd remain, kept asking us to be patient while they worked it out, but did nothing, absolutely NOTHING to put a stop to it. Then, on top of all of that, they attempted to blacklist me with other recruiters, and gave poor references.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest firing 90% of your recruiters, project management team, etc. I also suggest you stop lying to your contractors to keep them on site, and be upfront, honest, and HONORABLE in your dealings with not only your employees/contractors, but the clients as well. On top of that, another suggestion would be to stop workplace harassment and hostile work environments instead of doing nothing which WILL lead to a lawsuit as soon as I get a lawyer.

    Pros

    Very actively looking for a matching position and seems have wide connection.

    Cons

    Try very hard to low ball the pay rate by finding out what is your most needed and try to use it to against you.
    Have no confidence that TekSystem will find next assignment to you without lapse.

    I have been working at TEKsystems

    Pros

    The Columbus office has a great staff of recruiters and they have been nothing but helpful. No gimmicks, everything I was promised in the negotiations was delivered. Some nice fringe benefits like discounts to Jos A Banks and Brooks Brothers

    Cons

    The benefits packages is completely at contractor cost, and it's not that great when you look at a major corporations insurance plan in comparison.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a better health insurance plan, the min-max plans are cheap for a reason, but long term contractors would prefer a real plan.
