I worked at TEKsystems for two years, and for my first year and half it was heaven. I was on track to become a manager, and had really learned to love the culture and all of the people there.
My coworkers became more like a second family, and I thrived in the fast paced environment. The work was very detailed, and after over a year, as the most tenured person on my team I was the go to person for questions and odd situations, and I handled those situations on a day to day basis, in addition to my regular work load of vetting between 10-15 companies a week.
However, the environment changed after all of my leadership moved or were let go, and I found that under new leadership I was not being viewed as the valued member of the team I had been, and after a few months of struggle, it was time for me to leave TEK.
I learned so much about the corporate world, and would not trade that experience for anything, and if given the chance, I do wish it had gone differently, but after struggling for more than six months with new leaders being brought it, it became an environment i was not comfortable in, it became a place where perfection was not only expected, but demanded and where mistakes were scrutinized in an unfair capacity. The goals of the team changed, and the vision of this new team wasn't aligned with what i wanted. All in all I felt very given up on by my upper leadership team and I couldn't be in a place that didn't support or appreciate who I was.
The company is still a good company, and the people are really great, this is just my personal experience.
great experience, good bonus incentives, "fun" place to work
inconsistent leadership, unfullfiled core values and competencies, no real room for internal promotion into leadership positions.
