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

    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.

    Great Experience as as Independent Contractor Through Bloomington, IL Office

    Former Employee - Contract Project Manager in Birmingham, AL

    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.

    Pros

    You'll get a chance to open up yourself & everyone's on the floor will be on your way to help you out.

    Cons

    Target Oriented. They'll not force you to do so. But ultimately you'll start feeling the heat. Because when the group performs & if you won't, then it leads to a pressurized environment. If you perform accordingly, then you are good to be a part of such an organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No suggestions for managers. They just need to spend a little time with their employees about work.

    Pros

    Best culture I have ever seen within a work space. Their company wide module includes building relationships with other people within the company. Encourages growth no matter how it's done even if that means moving to another team.

    Cons

    hired as contract and date continues to be extended. Personal con is that you have to put on the New Work Business look for wardrobe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.
