Great place to work. Salespeople very respectful of clients and contractors.
Consultant Positions (Former Employee) –  Southfield, MI17 September 2013
Placed in several different positions temporary in nature. A typical day at work involved answering phones and emails regarding telecom issues regarding either billing or technical.

I learned a great deal about Telecom by working in several different industries. For example: Retail, Automotive, Medical, and Telephone Service Providers.

My co-workers were always nice and professional. Management was caring and treated all contractors with respect.

The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how Telecom works in other business settings. The hardest part was driving from Genesee county to Oakland county each day.
Pros
Vacation and sick pay
Cons
work not permanent

Say good bye to your personal life
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) –  AB13 December 2017
No work life balance, terrible management. They take people who are decent in sales and put them into director level positions, with little to no training on personnel management or leadership and expect them to positively impact your career. Most people who have been with the company for more than 2 yrs are so indoctrinated they expect you to give up all other aspirations for your life and career and just live the Tek Model. The company is designed to take people fresh out of school who have no life experience and shape them into thoughtless sales people so the company can make more money. no outside the box thinking, high pressure sales tactics to under cut consultants, and when they use you up they will spit you out and hire the next generation

Good place to learn
Lead Software Developer (Current Employee) –  MontrĂ©al, QC15 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.
Pros
great learning experience
Cons
yearly salary increase are mediocres
