Pros

The staff at Teksystems and FirstGroup were very friendly and supportive.

Cons

A con for Teksystems is that the pay is a little low for Help Desk contractors. A con for FirstGroup America would be too many staff changes to the IT Department. There is no job security for IT employees due to constant outsourcing of IT related functions.

Advice to Management

Advice ot Teksystems would be to pay your contractors a little more to beat out the competition. Advice to FirstGroup Management would be to have more IT related team building activities because there is a strong devide between IT Staff and IT Management.

    Pros

    You are able to make connections with people at the companies that you do contract work with. Potential for being hired on full time is ify.

    Cons

    Low wages, no benefits for contract workers and the tasked to be completed are very repeative so be prepared to get board.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stay here too long and hope that you get hired on to the company that you are doing full time work for.

    Pros

    - Easy entry into IT for someone needing a starting point
    - Access to tons of online training courses with Skill Point
    - Decent selection of online tools (HR, pay, time submission, career tools, etc)

    Cons

    - Minimal guidance and communication from management.
    - From my experience, this is really "just a job" with minimal opportunities to advance.
    - Benefits are practically non existent. Acceptance of any type of benefit results in a substantial pay cut and renegotiation of your contract. (for example, you will get paid a couple bucks less an hour if you opt for vacation days)
    - Expected to work holidays without any kind of compensation

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees more to help with job placement and career growth. Find a way to incorporate benefits without minimizing employee's pay.
