    Pros

    This is a company that is a good place to start once you are finished college, company is very willing to give people a chance.

    Cons

    Opportunities that are always talked about by management aren't always there. You can get stuck in an entry level job for quite some time depending on your luck with the accounts you receive.

    Great. I don't think any staffing firm puts as much effort into maintaining its' culture of performance.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time

    Pros

    The training for new hires is outstanding. No company puts a greater emphasis on constantly emphasizing it's core values, culture of performance and holding each other accountable. The opportunity to earn high commissions is a little over-inflated, but it is possible to do really well if you put in the work.

    Cons

    You can only have minimal expectations for work-life balance. Top performers are given a little latitude, but if you're not doing exceptionally well, don't expect to be allowed to miss many of the 8 AM morning meetings, or leave early (4:30, 5:00PM?) for any reason (kids, family obligations, etc.).

    Great company that is focused on their internal employees just as much as their clients.

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    TEKsystems is a privately held company that is built around strong core values, has great people and is very goal oriented. TEKsystems has helped me grow not only as a professional but as a person and this is due to the people internally I work with and how committed everyone is to see each other become better.

    Cons

    Base pay might be lower than some of our competitors but the commission and bonus potential far exceeds what the competition can offer.

    Pros

    TEK does a great job on-boarding their new hires. They do a great job training you from IT to negotiations, they leave nothing to guess work. Your direct boss is your mentor and friend..it feels like a family. Compensation is great, definitely somewhere to plant roots and invest in a career.

    Cons

    The hardest part is the hours you invest. This isn't an 8-5 job.

    Great Experience as as Independent Contractor Through Bloomington, IL Office

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    It has been a while since I signed up with Tek Systems but I recall they were a good company to work through for a contract position with BellSouth Telecommunications (now part of AT&T). I strictly used them as an approved contractor administrator to work as an independent contractor. They primarily handled my payroll administration. They were very flexible and it was a mutually beneficial relationship given my status.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything. I was an independent contractor and not an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great services that you provided when I was working through you as an independent contractor.
