    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    TEK has a great culture! It's a work hard, play hard environment and the company does do things to keep you happy! They have an annual "contest" for those that hit their goals with a good bonus structure and incentive trip to Cancun annually. They will hire those with little/no experience with the right attitude and competitive background. The President understands the roles within the company because he started in the same roles that a new hire would do. The company is growing and there are a lot of opportunities in new products and services.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard to shut off work and go home. Selling Staffing is a difficult product. TEK's product is people, and people can change their mind. In order to be successful, you have to be able to deal with highs and lows of the job. The benefits they offer are expensive (high premiums and deductibles). There are a lot of changes in the compensation structure which are usually not for the better. There is a big push for "sacrifice" for the greater good mentality and a lot of changes creating a very silo'd organization and dissections of territories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constant push for activity and micro-management is exhausting.

    Fantastic employer....abysmally poor benefits

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

    Pros

    I've been with TEKsystems as a business analyst for 13 months placed with KY's Commonwealth Office of Technology. The Louisville, KY, office is staffed with professionals who are pleasant and helpful. They do care for their contractors and have an extremely favorable reputation with the state.

    If you can deal with the 'Cons' listed below, TEKsystems is the best firm to get you placed with the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Most of their people have been with the state for years.

    NOTE: concerning my rating for "Compensation & Benefits": the neutral score is based on benefits...not compensation.

    Cons

    The benefits...the benefits...the benefits. Nothing is standard: if you want paid holidays or PTO, you have to come down in salary. Their health insurance is the issue for me. I need good coverage that doesn't cost 1/4th of my monthly gross salary.

    I will be leaving them next month; not because I want to, but I lose my health insurance coverage from an previous employer at the end of August.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strongly urge you to re-think your benefit package. In today's world of health insurance law, you MUST do better to keep good people.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time for 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

    Decent salary, good office culture and work- life balance. Company core values are good and I feel employee friendly.

    Cons

    Have an image of HR consultancy which hurts core technical employees some times. Don't see much of recreation programs for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus needed on improving employee skills by arranging more training, etc.

    Pros

    Everyone is professional at TEKsystems. They only hire the best. Working as a contractor is an excellent way to gain experience.

    You should expect to provide your own health and dental insurance as well as your own IRA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to expect professionalism and excellence from all employees.

    They get you hired where others can't

    Pros

    TekSystems (Independence Ohio) seems to have a direct relationship with certain companies which make it easier to get hired. I initially used another recruiting company to try to get a position at a Financial company in Downtown Cleveland. I did not get a call back from that Recruiting company. I then went Through Mike D. at TekSystems of Independence Ohio and he got me an interview very quickly at the same Downtown Company, and I was offered the position about a week later, also at a higher hourly rate than I had expected. TekSystems has one of their reps introduce you to the hiring manager on the day of your interview. They also have the rep meet you in the lobby on your first day on the job to introduce you to your immediate report. Follow up and communication throughout the process is great also.

    Cons

    None...keep up the good work

    I have been working at TEKsystems part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A positive work environment where I was surrounded by people who loved what they were doing. An ethical and people oriented company with an amazing support system

    Cons

    You will work long, hard hours to move up in the company. It takes a lot of commitment and determination but if you stick with it you'll be gold.

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

    Pros

    The recruiters I worked with were very pleasant and professional. I never felt pressured to take an interview that I didn't want to take. They would give reasons why I should, but I never felt bullied, like with some other recruiting agencies.

    Cons

    Some of the account reps weren't as thorough as some of the others. One in particular kept telling me how busy she was. I didn't need to hear her issues, I needed to find a job.

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

    Pros

    Once you have established yourself as an asset to any customer, TEKsystems will try to keep you employed with future assignments

    Cons

    They didn't seem interested in finding a more suitable role to meet my qualifications while I was actively on assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a career path for contractors rather than keep them at the same level and place within different companies.
