    I worked at TEKsystems full-time

    Pros

    Great people Everyone wants to succeed

    Cons

    Long hours, terrible pay Would often stay back and do work however management do not see this as 'trying hard enough' Only interested in producing results, and make you feel horrible if those results do not come even if it is not in your control Force you to come to work sick even though was bed ridden only because 'other people in the office were sick too'

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at TEKsystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent training from most consultants Vibrant culture, young and fun vibe with plenty of buzz in the office Good progression on offer if you work for it Low turnover compared to most agencies

    Cons

    Low pay vs industry Development is dependent on who you work under Long hours with no time in lieu —> American work culture which can clash with Aussie ideals and values Top heavy reward model - consultants make great money if they do well but candidate managers make peanuts

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing and don’t let the Americans corrupt the Australian business with policies which don’t fit. What works over there doesn’t always work here.

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good training programmes, probably a good place to start if you're not worried about salaries. Managers are good people .

    Cons

    Bottom of the market in salary, typical big agency comm scheme. Carrot is dangled via multiple promotion opportunities with corresponding salary jumps of minor value. KPI driven, no real long term opportunity for high performers, as they will cut your territory up by verticals, shift them whenever they want, then cut it down further into perm vs contract. If you want to be perpetually "hungry" it's fine. If you actually...

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall great team and company culture, lots of professional growth opportunity through mentorship

    Cons

    Especially since they only hire from within, if you're not prepared to work a lot and be in a cold-calling sales job (and make money) BEFORE all the better roles, hours, pay, don't do it
