    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

    Most of the recruiters will really try to find a fit for your skill set instead of just over selling you to get you in. They will have you do an adaptive skill test which is not easy but ensures that you have the skills to do the job. They move quickly in the process.

    Cons

    Sometimes you talk to several recruiters about the same position.

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor

    Pros

    Good support from the recruiters. One of the few contract houses that provides benefits. Not the greatest benefits but definitely better than nothing.

    Cons

    Management doesn't value the employees enough. Responses to annual surveys ignore or gloss over the main concerns of employees and focus on minor stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are your primary asset and they are not a captive audience.

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

    Pros

    Better clients, better pay. Recruiters are friendly and professional, not sketchy sales types you see at other places. All the gigs they sent me on were at good, solid (i.e. not sketchy) companies.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints about this company. They've been professional and responsive with me for as long as I've been working with them. But even though it's great that they offer any benefits at all -- basic health insurance, personal days -- given the nature of the job, I wish there was one more personal day in the calendar.

    Pros

    Great people, they do everything they can to get you in the door for interviews with companies and facilitate getting you hired.

    Cons

    Normal Job hunting company, pay is less than you would recieve if you were hired outright.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep sharing your positive attitudes, you guys and gals are great to work with.
