    I worked at TEKsystems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Their recruiting process over promises. They ask for the stars and the moon from you. I have no Pro's for Teksystems, after working with many of their local offices.

    Cons

    They lie. Harsh? Yes. But you need to know this. Don't take their job opportunities seriously. Do NOT provide your references unless you're in the final stages of interviewing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire accountable and SME -focused recruiters. I've had to educate a number of their recruiters about the roles they represent.

    Pros

    You truly get an opportunity to make a significant income and work hard to directly influence the amount that you are able to make.

    Cons

    You truly have to be savvy / patient to navigate the culture. Not a place for the weak.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with showcasing good habits

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time

    Pros

    I guess the only pro is the fact they pay you on time.

    Cons

    Cons: Not sure where to start. I was told I couldn't start on a certain date which should not be a big deal, but these idiots didn't tell me until 3 days before I was scheduled to start. (should have been my first warning sign)
    - Very difficult to get any questions answered
    - You are treated as just another warm body
    - Would not recommend this place to my enemy!

    Advice to Management

    Hire better recruiters, account managers, and people in general.

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

    Pros

    The name of the company no longer matches the value they initially started with.

    Cons

    Hire non-talented recruiters, with no knowledge of the IT field nor do they have any concept of integrity. They are liars and I would never EVER consider employment through them. If you're a business owner and looking for talent, this is not the place to go.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your recruiters better.

    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.
