Not The Same Company It Was When I Started in 2000
IT Contractor (Former Employee) – Alameda, CA – 28 December 2012
It was a great company full of wonderful opportunities, especially for an IT professional starting out in their career, but as the economy changed and the market out there became a "free-for-all" for employers, there were some folks in the company that seemed to forget that there was such a thing as the 13th Amendement out there and they treated me as if I was their personal property to do as they wished.
it was a good place to gain experience.
staffing professionals who treat you more like you are earning them a paycheck.
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.
