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

    Pros

    With a contract position you have a chance to experience autonomy, experience with new or different systems, and a chance to work with some great people.

    Cons

    Contract positions do come to an end and there is always a delay between assignments. If you can afford to be out of work for up to six months at a time between jobs then this can be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    None.

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

    Pros

    Have a good process and seem to be very capable in following that process. Have a lot of very professional staff and you can see why they have grown so well. I never had a problem getting paid nor any problem with their daily processes, and my interactions with their staff were both courteous and welcoming (if a little artificial).

    Cons

    Anything off-process seems to stump them and require a Herculean effort on their part to address.

    Advice to Management

    Not much - you have a winning structure that will suit 95% of clients and 95% of contractors just fine.

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

    Pros

    Access to in house training for multiple disciplines. Access to health benefits (purchase) even on contract.

    Cons

    Now that I'm ready for a new position, the follow up from the recruiting team is less than stellar. Calls are not returned.

    Advice to Management

    Back up your claims to be the best with contractors. Build a business plan for your recruiters which includes 2 x week follow up for everyone with whom they are working.

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

    Pros

    The Account Managers are very involved and are always very professional and courteous. They take an interest in how you're doing in the position. The pay is okay (but it's weekly, which is nice), and they offer and encourage skills improvement opportunities.

    Cons

    The benefits package is severely lacking/non-existent. As a contractor, they offer health coverage, but it's basically them coordinating a private health policy and allowing premiums to be deducted from your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    There should be some sort of bonus/reward program, even for contractors, if they get good feedback from employers. Currently, there's not even any type of annual review process. Also, there are several other consulting firms in the area that offer benefits to their contractors. TEKsystems is falling behind the times, and you'll start losing good contracts to other companies if you don't get on board with offering better benefits.
