    Invest more out of your employees and you will get more from them.

    TEC Career Solutions tells you what you want to hear

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Fort Smith, AR
    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Fort Smith, AR

    I worked at TEC as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The office atmosphere was professional and pleasant.

    Cons

    The staff will tell you whatever you want to hear so that you will take the position they need to fill. I was led to believe that my compensation would go up considerably after five weeks on the job; however, that was not the case. The compensation only goes up after you finish the approximate twelve week contract with TEC. When I noted my disappointment in the hiring person's deceptiveness, I was told that I must have understood wrong and nothing was done about the matter. They may have been able to timely fill a temporary position, but they lost a very good customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When good customers (workers) have the highest test scores you have seen in over two years, double check and follow up on their complaints. If they score so highly on your tests, they are probably not idiots and may be pointing out costly flaws in your system.

    Pros

    Installing GPS units is fun.

    Cons

    They tell you what it pays, then changes it when it is time to pay. A lower amount.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have insurance and don't use it because of the deductible. Crazy.

    A good place to start, but unless you're complacent, not a company you want to work a life-time at...

    I have been working at TEC

    Pros

    Good People. management is open to input from associates. I feel like i am a respected member of the team here...

    Cons

    There just doesn't seem to be enough room to grow and move up to where i want to go in my career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think for the most part the managers are doing a good job. Sometimes i feel like there should be more in house promotions, rather than hiring from the outside...

    I have been working at TEC

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company
    Good pay and benefits
    Young company (most employees are 25-35 years old)
    interesting work
    great opportunities for someone looking to transition from the militayr to the private sector due to a large number of DoD projects

    Cons

    Company is an ESOP corporation yet is still managed like a sole proprietorship by the CEO
    No real job security (company is always having layoffs or "restructuring their workforce")
    Good old boy network is alive and well here.
    Company is currently under investigation by the Federal Government for discriminatory employment practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and go play golf because that is about all you do now anyway!

    I worked at TEC

    Pros

    growing company
    work life balance can usually be managed
    coworkers are good people
    some interesting projects
    opportunity for travel in some positions

    Cons

    Cronyism
    Nepotism
    Below market pay
    lack of diversity
    Often behind the curve in technology because TEC management thinks it is a waste of money to replace anything that still works...even if there is something that works much better.
    No corporate credit cards at TEC, employees are expected to charge business expenses sometimes totalling tens of thousands of dollars on personal credit cards...then wait for TEC to get around to sending a reimbursement check.
    No company cell phones at TEC, employees are expected to use their personal cell phones for business calls and and foot the bill themselves.
    Historically too high reliance on public sector (mostly Department of Defense) work
    Some really incompetant management decisions (underbidding contracts)
    Employees live in constant fear of getting the axe in one of their MANY corporate downsizings.
    Few people survive long enough to become vested in this company unless they are one of the good ole boys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys built a solid company but it is time to retire and let someone else take it into the 21st century.
