I love working at TekSystems! Have had previous experiences that were heartless and awful, it's refreshing to work with the San Jose Tek Systems office who really work from their business heart to match consultants with contracts.
Lead Software Developer (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 15 October 2017
Disclaimer: I work in the Montreal office. The Montreal office is a development shop, as opposed to the rest of TEKsystems where the company is rather a recruitment firm.
Typical day at work: One agile team per project (Project Manager, Business Analyst, Architect, Team Lead, Developers & QAs)
What to learn: * The very knowledgeable lead architect is always striving to better ourselves by spending an hour per week on discussing many technical topics. * Formations are given to learn about the different phases of an Agile project (inception, sizing, story writing, etc.)
Workplace culture: People are helping each other out, as much as they can - which is awesome!
All in all, a very good company to work for (again, specific to the Montreal office), however.... The downside: the salary increase does not compete enough with what the market has to offer, and thus TEKsystems has a hard time keeping the good players in.
