Pros

Since they hire a lot of people right out of college, it's a great place to learn a lot and to start your career. It is also a lot of fun for someone young and I met a lot of great people.

Cons

The management style is over the top micromanagement. You have to work long hours and it almost seems like you could never do enough. Way too many unneccessary processes.

Advice to Management

Eliminate some of the processes and let people do their jobs. I understand why the micromanagement, I think it's necessary for the type of company that it is.

    Pros

    Good on-boarding and training program, good bonuses and commission structure, benefits are offered but expensive, most people in the company are young and money hungry which can promote healthy competition among recruiters and account managers.

    Cons

    You are expected to have a "servant mentality" (their words, not mine) to the company, your clients and consultants. You are expected to work overtime every day (your on salary, so no extra pay) and they constantly remind you that you should be working nights and weekends from home. So, basically no work or life balance.

    The company's retention rate is poor across the board and if you are a successful recruiter your only option is to become an account manager and start over again and you actually take a pay cut just to be promoted. Their company culture is a joke, senior management expects too much and rewards recruiters with too little.

    Your job is essentially to source and find the top technical professionals in the world and get them to do a job for as little as possible, which TEK charges double that rate to the company to hire that person - so the only person that wins is TEK. It's a very profitable business model, but not one you can stand by if you actually have morales.

    Advice to Management

    Offer greater compensation to recruiters and consultants.

    Pros

    Company values it's employees and offers a great benefits package and offered a great hourly rate as opposed to some companies that hire car salesmen who try to argue down your compensation..
    Recruiters keep in contact with employees well after hire date ensuring employees are happy and appreciated.
    Monthly group offsite meetings at local bars, frequently taken out for lunch on the company dime.

    Cons

    Some of the employees did not work out and were devalued and disregarded.
    Payroll team seemed lazy and unmotivated, had to do a lot of leg work as it took them three months to bother picking up a phone, following through with clients, or communicate clearly.
