    I worked at First Tek, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you spend money they can do any favors

    Cons

    They are very manipulating and conns you constantly. They talk nicely and softly. That is their bait. They always try to conn you. Read all the agreements carefully and reviewed with experienced person. Then you understand depth of and where they are throwing you. No matter of your condition they want money and revenue from you and they are very stubborn and adamant to loose their penny. It is always you will be on loosing end by working with them. Always write what the these guys are promising on verbal and then compare that with what is written in agreements coming from HR. You see lot of difference which will put the favorable situation and put you in unfavorable situation. Always ask for policies before signing up anything. Always scrutinize maximum their clauses and see how they will apply in different situations. Don't go blindly by the sweet talk by recruiting manager or whoever in touch with you. Insist to talk with HR or who is above and ask them how this works in specific situation. It would be very different what you have been told initially.

    I worked at First Tek, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Bought out failing company and kept employees - deal would have feel through if anyone left during negotiations

    Cons

    If you are employee, not contractor.. as soon as the buyout deal is signed, they begin cutting your benefits. Benefits may be part of buyout deal, but as soon as they can, they will reneg on it. They may wait several months, but it will happen. They will get out of providing health insurance and 401k as soon as they can. Your 401k match will be gone as soon as they acquire you. Eventually they will roll you out of company 401k to a money market and tell you you’re on your own. If you resign, the day you leave is the day you lose health insurance. No waiting until the end of the month like other companies even though insurance is paid monthly. They will also not pay you accrued sick time or vacation time. They will say you didn’t provide enough notice, even if you give 3 weeks. Trying to get the Corp office to respond is like trying to talk with someone already dead. Beware- they are not nice like when they are courting companies to buy. It’s strictly to acquire as much money and companies as possible and brag about it. Would give negative star rating if could.
