    I have been working at TEKsystems as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great feedback and lots of outreach from management. They really treated me as a valued asset and gave me legit feedback on positions. I was never 'ghosted' unlike about every other firm I worked with.

    Cons

    The contractor benefits are the worst I have ever been offered. I ended up getting better benefits myself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Provide feedback.

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

    Pros

    They did find me a position fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Minimal paid time off, benefits very expensive. I worked nights and the recruiter I worked with was very inflexible about scheduling meetings, she also was immature and non responsive to emails and voicemails.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. Better benefits and paid time off are a standard.

    I have been working at TEKsystems (More than a year)

    Pros

    TEKsystems takes outstanding care of their contractors. All recruiter have that I have worked with (5) took the time to work with me, touching bases every two weeks or less, and looking for the next contract for me.

    Cons

    None that I have experienced in the last 2.5 years. They have a great business model for taking care of their customers and contractors. Benefits package is a little light...

    Advice to Management

    None, the recruiters that I work with are always at their best.

    I worked at TEKsystems as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    TEK was my go-to contracting company. They worked very hard within their infrastructure to get me placed and always had multiple opportunities. Compensation was fair to good.

    Cons

    As a contractor, the benefits available to me were very limited - something that ultimately drove me to find a position as an employee.

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

    Pros

    Quick turn a rounds on positions they need filled immediately. They follow up with you and keep you up to date on the status of the position.

    Cons

    No benefits! No medical or otherwise. They will also not backup or support the consultant if it means standing up to a company's management. They really only care about making money. They are staff augmentation and that is it.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the consultant. Provide benefits and keep good consultants longer.Focus on how to improve the consultant's on the job training and work life. Listen to what the consultant has to say and follow up. Just don't pretend to care.

    I have been working at TEKsystems as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My client manager has done her best to represent me well and support me.

    Cons

    It's a staffing and placement firm, so it will always have a superficial feel to it as you will not really feel as though you belong, just that you are the commodity that they are selling.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be too wed to the large corporations in the regions as they work together to drive down rates. Go after the mid sized accounts that you can get better rates and establish longer term relationships with.

    Pros

    Very friendly Account manager and recruiter. Weekly pay, Easy timesheet submission, great client depth

    Cons

    It is contracting so there is never a guarantee that when you roll off a project you won't have any down, unemployed time.

    Pros

    Always seem to have work available. Recruiters are really nice and are very personable. Very good communication between recruiters/management and staff.

    Cons

    Not really a consulting company, more like a staff augmentation company. Not thing really bad to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    look into creating a project team to become a real project based consulting firm. You have the talent across your current clients.
