I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Once you have established yourself as an asset to any customer, TEKsystems will try to keep you employed with future assignments

Cons

They didn't seem interested in finding a more suitable role to meet my qualifications while I was actively on assignment.

Advice to Management

It would be nice to have a career path for contractors rather than keep them at the same level and place within different companies.

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Prompt Weekly pay checks, Direct Deposit

    Cons

    Low salary, no vacation/holiday/sick days, Crappy benefits, you would think a company that has thousands of "employees" would be able to offer benefits at a good price, they wanted $600 a month to cover me and my Wife, 60% coverage with a 25k max out of pocket. I can get better benefits on the open market for less. The only reason they are a "highly rated company" by there employees is because they get survey results from there 500 or so in house staff employees, survey the thousands of contractors that have the misfortune work for them, the results would be far different. There recruiters low ball you on salary, you really have to be in demand for them to budge on salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't have to be this way, you could offer decent salary and benefits and still make a profit. Instead of low balling salaries and benefits. I know for a Fact that one contract you charging the client $50 a hour for PC technicians, and you were paying as low as $16 a hour. That's almost slave labor. I worked with government staffing agencies and they make you look like a sleazy used car salesmen in a cheap suit in comparison.
