    Pros

    Good connections, one of the oldest recruiters and a "go-to" for many employers. What makes Portland Tek-Systems stand out is that they have great connections inside large employers.

    Cons

    Not really too many things to say bad. Like any recruiting company the recruiters need to be experts in everything or at least understand the technology. This is difficult so good employees get missed because of not having a key word (of some low-end tool) and vice versa.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really, just keep what your doing. Keep the relationships with great large employers. Make it easier to setup direct deposit.

    Pros

    The best thing about TEK is the people. Everyone gets along and we enjoy spending time with each other both inside and outside the office. The work is very rewarding and the compensation is excellent for performers. I have never worked for a company where there is so much respect for leadership.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the business, it can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    It was a great first job out of college, lots of good experience (if you are into sales) and a friendly work environment. Be prepared to work hard but you also have lots of fun.

    Cons

    It was a great first job out of college to gain some experience. I was single at the time and it was enjoyable hanging out with my similar aged co-workers after work and on weekends although I felt like it was "mandatory" sometimes to go to happy hours or have dinner etc. That kind of got old. It's definately performance based (I was a sales/mgnt recruiter) but if you can perform you can do well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some recent college grads but not 100% of new hires shoudl be recent grads. There is benefit in hiriing people with more maturity and experience.

    Pros

    Good people in both contractor organization and global services organization. Broad client base and aggressively market you once assignments end.

    Management consultant for years and conformable recommending TEK. You get paid when you bill; health insurance could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Improve insurance offering

    Pros

    They do offer benefits but it is expensive. Contracts sometimes leads to full time work. Sometimes they will pay overtime.

    Cons

    This was Contract work so work in temporary. Vacation, Holidays and sick days are not paid for by employer. You can be let go at anytime by the employer.

    Pros

    Really great opportunity for recent college graduates looking to get into a sales organization. It truly is a work hard play hard environment.

    Cons

    70 hour work weeks make it hard to enjoy time to yourself. If you are okay with not seeing loved ones or having a life outside of work this is the place for you. The hours burn you out very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the work life balance

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, a lot of opportunity. The company invests in your long term goals if you stay loyal. I wouldn't consider leaving because of the opportunity that has been given to me.

    Cons

    Moving to a more matrixed environment which sometimes can cause confusion and overlap.
