    Pros

    If you work hard you'll earn money
    Amazing coworkers who are friendly and just very good people
    They train you and give you a chance to be successful

    Cons

    No work life balance, unless your work is your life which is the case for many people... but they may realize they don't want that anymore sooner or later! There are lots of other companies that allow for better balance. If you want to have your own life and separate it from work, this is not the place for you. Or, you can join for the opportunities and not be as happy as you could be somewhere else with similar compensation. I didn't foresee this when I joined. They are working on increasing diversity... I hope they realize this is a part of it... some people do not want to party all the time and spend every day with coworkers... even if they're best friends. Everyone had a life before TEKsystems and people they need to make time for.

    Advice to Management

    TEK is an awesome company with even more awesome people but the long hours worked are already exhausting... don't encourage recruiters to abandon their personal lives and spend every waking moment on TEK and their TEK family, then those recruiters scold the ones who don't want to do that. We can have fun, care about eachother and still have time for our own personal selves after work and on the weekends... People leave because there is just no balance whatsoever... it gets exhausting after a few months or a year or 2 even with good compensation. Even when you enjoy the happy hours and become close friends with coworkers. Not sustainable. The good base salary doesn't solve the problem.
