Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – August 2, 2018
The culture is that of false compliments and poor management designed to cover up poor training and leadership skills. The training is more of waiting for mistakes and penalizing instead of actual teaching.
Manager of Operations Support (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – July 30, 2018
It is a good career starter to get your feet wet. They really ease you into the corporate world. After becoming a Senior Business Operations Associate in the West Coast, there really isn't anywhere else to move up. All the jobs are at the Baltimore office and they are not willing to move them to Tempe anytime soon.
Sr Content Manager for a Major Healthcare Company (Former Employee) – DFW, TX – July 25, 2018
This was one of the best places I have worked at. What I really like about Teksystems is there is ongoing training and encouragement from the managers and team leaders. They really invest time in advancing your career. I worked remotely and that was a plus as well. I was promoted a year after I started my job. Typical work day included morning meeting and then work throughout the day on the project. There were also afternoon meetings. We used SCRUM methodology, which as a content person, I was not familiar with but was given the necessary training. The best part of the job was working from home and the flexible work schedule.
Help Desk Technician (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – July 2, 2018
Be careful about trusting what they say about how much they are going to pay you, what is the most they can pay you and what you'll make if your hired by the company your contracting for. I worked with other people who were contracted by TekSystems and even though we were in the same job and hired around the same time, we were paid several dollars different even though TekSystems tried to deny that they could make the pay even.
PC WORKSTATION TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Waukegan, IL – June 26, 2018
TEKsystems is able to find you work very swiftly but they've got an unusual culture within their business. No two reps are the same in how they talk, approach, negotiate, etc. etc. So if you happen to get a stingy rep that refuses to give you a higher pay, that's probably it. Whereas, sometimes you'll get lucky and find more flexible representatives that are willing to pay you what you're worth.
The company itself is fine and they're pretty good at find places to employ their workers at. The benefits would probably be ok but I don't personally make enough to afford them.
I've learned a lot of I.t. skills working at one of the companies TEKsystems got me a job at. My value is exponentially higher than what I walked in with.
I.t. work varies for what you sign up for. TEKsystems will typically be the company that manages your paychecks and that's about it.
Good starting point for getting into Information technology
No raises, 50/50 chance on getting a flexible rep, low starting pay rates
I was contracted to the T-Mobile NOC. Great place, Great people. very relaxed and they guaranteed 40 hours. Hard to get a raise or move up. Its a great entry level job to get in the industry but no much else.
Contractor (United Technologies, Corp., Farmington (Current Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – June 25, 2018
If you have a partner or spouse and can afford to be a contractor with no paid time off or decent benefits then this is a position for you. I would not recommend for the simple fact that the cost of medical and dental insurance is extremely high and you end up paying a large portion of your paycheck just to cover benefits. They do not offer any paid time off and expect you to fulfill your contract with no time of.
Global Delivery Director (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – June 20, 2018
TEKsystems has a great history and reputation for finding top talent to help clients. TEKsystems is in the process of attempting to transition into a more services based model. There is still a heavy focus on staffing and that tends to cloud the perspectives needed to make the full transition.
Typical technician position based on pay by call. Travel and work by day and home at night. Contract work which is good if its a long project. I have no complaints based on the business model and the fact that it was contract work. I was hoping it may turn into a permanent job but that is always a gamble with contract work.
