    Pros

    Good people. They work as a team to place you when your contract is up. The account managers are very supportive. Meets with you frequently and provides good feedback.

    Cons

    I do not understand why they do not have good benefits, They seem to be weak in making permanent placements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation is below market. Improve on getting better benefits package.

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

    Pros

    Non. Considering how they treat people they contract, I can't find any.

    Cons

    They don't have your back. They will take the word over the client to keep their accounts. You are expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well first, don't misrepresent the contract. Second, get rid of recruiters that have no idea what they are signing the person up with. And have the back of your consultants! After all, the consultants work for you, so by bad mouthing them, you are actually bad mouthing yourself!

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

    Pros

    Fine for someone trying to get their foot in the door but the pay is no better for experienced help Tek Systems is more interested in padding their pockets than they are in placing quality help.

    Cons

    Low pay and little chance of a perm position unless you have worked with them for 3 years or more and with the poor pay scale that's tough to do, I have seen many temp workers go more than 7 years at the same work location before getting even a slim chance for permanent hire. The environment creates a poor attitude among the temps low pay combined with inexperienced makes for very difficult working conditions at the client sites as the clients have little confidence in temp workers who are often seen as competition by full time workers who are afraid of being replaced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your clients a favor and pay your temp workers a fair wage stop taking advantage of both clients and temp workers

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

    Pros

    TekSystems did great at finding me a good job, and they were in constant contact with me DURING the contractor position. Weekly pay was GREAT

    Cons

    When my position was eliminated with the company I was at, they dropped me like a fly!! I haven't heard anything from them, not even a helping hand at finding another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After ones position has ended, help them find another position. Don't leave people out in the cold!
