    Good place to work

    I have been working at TEKsystems

    Pros

    Very open and passionate culture. Very structured training and development program. This is a great place to work for if your career is just getting started.

    Cons

    Base salary is on the lower range for the same type of positions in the industry. Moving up can be very slow therefore employee turnover rate is high.

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have not contracted before working with TEK, but I really enjoyed the first experience. The Bloomington, IL office of TEK was superb and had a stellar relationship with a great, stable company. I would recommend working at that particular TEK office any day.

    Cons

    Bloomington, Illinois is not for everyone, but I was a small town Iowa boy, so no problems here. Bloomington was a "big city" to me.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work culture is great. Someone who wants to succeed and works hard at it will go far. Senior people are usually happy to spend time helping you out and mentoring you if you ask for it. Setting meetings outside the office provides variety for your work day.

    Cons

    It is a sales position with a lot of cold calling, even if it is not advertised as such. Being commission based, you can end up working a lot outside 8-5 business hours depending on who your manager is and how successful you want to be.

    Pros

    Weekly pay at a comfortable livable rate, better than the competition

    Cons

    Be truthful about the client with the employee, we are the ones who have to deal with the jerks every day. The client will always consider the contract employee as yesterday's meat loaf.
