    Pros

    The people who work here are just incredible. They are people who really care about you and your success. We are competitive but not to the detriment of others. There's also a ton of opportunity for growth not just within our company but also within one of our other Operating Companies.

    Cons

    When you are consistently the leading company in your industry it's really difficult to stay there year after year. Therefore work/life balance is often non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the feedback from employees at all levels. We are a "promote from within" organization and therefore most of the people at the top haven't been in recruiting or account management jobs for many years.

    Pros

    Lots of jobs, weekly and prompt pay.

    Cons

    Low wages, value the client to the absolute detriment of the contractor, they won't even talk to you about other opportunities when you are on an ongoing project. Terrible benefits, no sick time or vacation. poor support and training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest just a little bit in your employees. Learn the definition of Morale.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked directly with were awesome! They were very supportive on a VERY difficult contract. They have monthly happy hours and when I had problems were very apologetic. The company is trying to go from being a staffing firm to a permanent technical company.

    Cons

    Worst benefits ever for a full time permanent employee! Below average pay. I'm sure the company is making money off employees from the health insurance and other benefits because they are so expensive. For every claim, I had to show proof of prior insurance for the last 1 1/2 years.
    I was laid off - called at 9 pm and told not to report to work the next day. Was given no reason for the lay off but told it was not for cause. When I applied for unemployment, Teksystems challenged the claim saying I was laid off for cause. I challenged Teksystems, the unemployment commission person said Teksystems regularly challenges unemployment claims and that they provided no further information so I got the unemployment. Hope I never work for them again!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason Teksystems cannot find and keep qualified personnel. The pay and benefits are too crummy!

    Pros

    The front line management are great. Very available, and receptive. The salary would be good if they paid for holidays, any time off or benefits. Project is great.

    Cons

    Teksystems initial salary offer does not include ANY days off, or benefits. They don't tell you this when they make an offer. I found out after the fact when I was signing the contract - after I had turned down other companies. No holidays, sick leave, vacation or benefits - all are paid for by employee separately. The benefits they offer are very expensive, and the bottom rung.

    All of us here can't wait for Teksystems to lose the contract - but according to the confidentiality agreement, we can't work for ANY company at this agency for 6 months after we leave Teksystems - even if they lay off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am repeatedly by Teksystems asked to refer people to your company and I can't. The crummy benefits, bait and switch contract and the confidentiality agreement is just wrong.
