    Pros

    Culture, goal oriented. Colleagues make or break the job. Get to meet a lot of people and make a difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    Recruiting is hard generally. Long hours, definite favorites. Recruiting is difficult in a small city. Work life balance is hard to achieve.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. Your colleagues are committed and invested in your success as you are with theirs. They offer support outside work as well to all employees

    Cons

    If they could provide a more substantial and affordable health plan and increase the 401K contribution to an industry standard that would help a great deal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the local market leaders before making sweeping changes to the field offices.

    Pros

    Great company, looks out for you as an employee.

    Cons

    NO con against Tek specifically but the fact the work I had was contract and didn't end up becoming permanent was a drag.

    Pros

    Best in class recruiting. So vast in the company's reach
    Changes lives daily. Amazing colleagues. One of the most prestigious large firms to work at. Difficult to get hired here as TEKsystems has very demanding standards...top of the line

    Cons

    Frankly it's just a stressful job. Sr Account Managers, Lead Recruiters, Delivery Recruiting Sales Managers, and Director of Business Opps on average start at Minimum total compensationaround 120,000 annually so it's worth it

    Advice to Management

    You need to literally clean house of the lazy DBOs and Account Managers and out of touch self obsessed lifer recruiters they aren't helping attract and retain millennials only some are

    Pros

    The staff are very competent and in tune with what their customers want and what kind of jobs that they are offering.

    Cons

    They mislead a colleague as to whether they were going to offer sponsorship (said they would and then didn't at the last moment; not enough time for him to recover).

    Advice to Management

    Do not push people to decide whether to take a position quickly. Career choices are important and should not be rushed.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In my market covering southern Ohio and send of Kentucky or other markets in West Virginia we had a great team. Yes, you work hard. Yes, the job is hard. But when my 30th birthday hadn't even arrived and I made more money than my mom, dad, and sister combined, all of whom work full time by the way, I realized the long hours and stress were worth it. I feel a lot of the folks who don't make it in the staffing or agency recruiting realm get really salty about it. If you're good, you'll fall in love with TEKsystems and it will provide you with amazing opportunities. If you simply don't have the work ethic, smarts, and people skills, you'll sink like an anker. Just don't take it personally if you don't make it. I would highly recommend this job to ANYONE lucky enough to get an offer here. It changes your life by teaching you invaluable skills in business. Two years at TEKsystems offer more practical business experience than any C-level MBA would, no joke! Great people! Values driven! Cares about the consultant and contractor population very very sincerely and authentically. Hard working colleagues. Incredibly lucrative for top performers!

    Cons

    I do not know of a job that pays all of its top performers over six figures even those that started a couple years ago. With that said, I have no con. For me, working is about making money and making a difference. You get both at TEKsystems.

    Advice to Management

    I get nervous when I felt Jay and the RVPs were out of touch in attracting and retaining millennials for internal hire roles. Better Healthcare and Benefits. Young folks care about time off I guess more than money so I suppose you should change things.

    - Very rewarding to those diligent enough to put in the time necessary to see success.

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been with TEK for 9 years, would highly recommend to college grads to get their foot in the door and develop a strong work ethic.
    Good Culture
    Great people to work with makes a miserable industry better

    Cons

    Office Director's are reading from a script given to them by senior leadership.
    Not much creative thinking anymore.
    I feel like all of the good Office Directors have been driven out of the company by senior leadership for being free-thinkers.
    Senior leadership is clunky and old school thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Catch up with the times, it's not 1985

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gave me my first shot at managing.
    Received quality people to run the help desk.
    Tried to train when it came to managing - tough to do this though.

    Cons

    Started very low in my salary.
    No support from above - had to rely on myself - which may have been better in the long term.
    No work life balance - but this was my decision - and our account was chaos

    Advice to Management

    It was really tough to figure out our end goals for the year - need better communication. I give them credit - they knew that and were working to resolve.
