    Pros

    Recruiters are by your side every step of the process from interviews to payroll.

    I have been working at TEKsystems as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Responsive recruiter. They are attentive to their consultants.

    Cons

    For the contracts I was on with their Global Services division the pay was dreadful. Well below any industry standard. Led to high attrition, poor hiring decisions and managers who would lie about there being opportunity and more pay and better jobs to keep people in their seats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your consultants at least to industry standards, stop lying, be honest about the reality of the work.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My recruiter, delivery lead, and coordinator were all GREAT! They were honest with me upfront about my short term contract and the small percentage of contractors who actually get converted to full-time employees. I was lucky and did get converted and am very pleased! I am grateful to TEKsystems and all they did for me!

    Cons

    Receiving PTO as a contractor is rare and a wonderful benefit that TEKsystems offers, however the health insurance offered has room for improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communications open.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Fine for someone trying to get their foot in the door but the pay is no better for experienced help Tek Systems is more interested in padding their pockets than they are in placing quality help.

    Cons

    Low pay and little chance of a perm position unless you have worked with them for 3 years or more and with the poor pay scale that's tough to do, I have seen many temp workers go more than 7 years at the same work location before getting even a slim chance for permanent hire. The environment creates a poor attitude among the temps low pay combined with inexperienced makes for very difficult working conditions at the client sites as the clients have little confidence in temp workers who are often seen as competition by full time workers who are afraid of being replaced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your clients a favor and pay your temp workers a fair wage stop taking advantage of both clients and temp workers

    The company offers you an opportunity to work in the technological work-force with little to no experience.

    It's contract work and the pay is sub-par

    Current Contractor - Business Systems Analyst in Fort Worth, TX

    I have been working at TEKsystems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for TEK on and off for more than eight years. They have good connections with most of the leading IT companies, skilled advice on interviews, careful consideration of your strengths and weaknesses, and most of all they consider you THEIR employee, not a cog to be thrown to the client. Good exposure to new technologies and training resources are high quality.

    Cons

    The benefits package is weak, but since most contracting companies don't even offer one... it does include full health, dental, vision, and a 401k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the slackers. 90% of the negative reviews are because your recruiters don't cut people who can't perform. Trying to help people unwilling to help themselves has cost you a few contracts in the past.
