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

    Pros

    TEKsystems is an amazing place to learn and grow. The opportunities with TEK are endless. It’s an exciting, fast paced environment with no two days ever being the same. Great base pay, benefits and unlimited earning potential with commissions, bonuses, etc.
     The San Diego Director, Brian is by far the best leader I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. Solid team with a fun, collaborative spirit.
    Highly recommend working here!!!!

    Cons

    I don’t have any cons.

    Pros

    Great company to grow your career. If there are notnopprounities available where you see opportunities, they will make one. Excellent leadership. Everyone is very helpful and want you to be successful. Youthful culture. Highly professional environment in comparison to other staffing agencies since I have interviewed at others and/or I have friends that work at OT staffing agencies. Excellent training to establish a good foundation for sucess in your career. Great opportunity to make money. Gas, coffee, food (breakfast, lunch or dinner) alcohol, reimbursements as long as they are business related. Goal oriented.

    Cons

    The culture is a pro and con. When I did research for the company, the average age is 27 yrs old. Impressive for a billion dollar company right? But I realized the reason why it is such a young age is because they hire many people out of school since the attrition rate is nearly 40%. There is a lot of opportunity to make money but then again there are a lot of people that don’t make the money they refer to. Working in a people industry, you can do everything right and it won’t go the way you expected it to but that’s sales. They promote a work life balance but then again they only recognize the people who spend a lot of time and hours invested into the company. Core business hours are 8:00-5:30 but be prepared to work until 6,7, or even 8pm. The pay is good but it is debatable for the amount of effort and stress you deal with. They changed the pay structure so it is harder to achieve financial goals year after year consecutively. Everyone who is all into the company, TEKsystems refers it as “drinking the kool-aid” to where some people’s only lives revolve around TEK. They find people who are vulnerable in their interviews because ultimately they find the “sweet spot” that is a trigger point for you to drive you which can be good for some people and not for others.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very corporate culture - a good starter job.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of room to grow or innovate. Promises for promotions not kept, though higher level work was being done. My boss left and I absorbed all her responsibilities. Received great reviews and positive feedback from other managers as I did this work for almost 9 months, but was arbitrarily not allowed to take her office or title and the timeline for my promotion kept being pushed back. I moved on to a company that appreciated me more.

    Advice to Management

    I heard there is a new PR director so things may have changed.
