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

    Pros

    There is a team of dedicated people looking out for you, and they have many top companies that they can set you up with. I have no complaints and I like the basic respect they have for their contractors.

    Cons

    It's contract work, When you are looking for full time employment it can be upsetting to have to change locations in less than a year.

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

    Pros

    They've been very proactive in working with me to find opportunities that fit my skill set and rate of pay. I've never had a payroll issue with them and am very appreciative that they pay weekly and on time.

    Cons

    The benefit package is too expensive and doesn't have a plan that pays for my needs. I get this through my spouse's work instead.

    Advice to Management

    You used to have contractor moral events. I was sad to see them go, but at least your account reps met regularly and I appreciated the free latte or breakfast or lunch. Don't give that up.

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

    Pros

    They got me a contract and tried to meet with me every month for a lunch meeting and a phone conference.

    Cons

    Their grandfather in health insurance is not only a joke, it should be illegal! When you confront them about the health insurance they claim that it's the same insurance across the board. However, no proof of such a statement and no parent would ever purchase such policy.

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great sales-driven culture. Leadership is involved in career development.

    Cons

    The role requires starting as a Recruiter and getting promoted to an Account Management role. It's common for AMs to fall into a recruiting bucket and end of recruiting close to 50% of the time. Being in the staffing services industry has many challenges that occupy the job and take the focus away from a business development/sales position.
