    I worked at TEKMARK Global Solutions as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing really... it is same as any other consulting firms or may be below average.

    Cons

    Pushed me too hard (various people in company were after me for 2-3 days calling me every hour) to take up a project while I had another decent offer in hand. Surprisingly, those guys who were continuously calling me, vanished all of a sudden and could not be contacted after I was hired. They promised me this project is different than other projects and would be long term, at least 3 years or so. But despite of good performance at client place, my project ended in a year. Now I am left alone neglected right from when they hired me.
    My assigned client representative won't even pick up the phone. Won't even respond to my calls.
    They are not at all supportive and you will be on your own once hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, transparent and support your employees. They work for you and in turn you get paid by their work.

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere, Good management team to handle all kinds of situations, Helpful employees who are eager to teach you how to be apart of the company.

    Cons

    It is hard to do the twelve hour shifts on day to day basis and the work can be sometimes erratic in terms of difficulty, you would never know when work comes your way.

    Really disappointing experience

    I have been working at TEKMARK Global Solutions

    Pros

    Provide h1b visa sponsorship

    Cons

    1. Really slow in the process.
    I sent more than five emails in last three weeks checking about my contract status, they either don't reply or say they need to ask their manager. Now, since my assignment is about to start in next month, they started my process finally, and started to ask background material which takes time to collect from my previous employer.. They could let me know to prepare these things long back but they didn't.

    2. Not well organized communication.
    Instead of talking to one point of contact, I have been talked to 5+ agents/managers from Tekmark. Some time, I need to send duplicated documents to couple of them, because they all asked for it. I would really like to talk to one person, and that person could give me a laundry list of things they will need, and give me a reasonable deadline to submit them.

    3. Generally, I am in the black box.
    There are couple of times, I asked my point of contact (so called) of what's the next step in the process, he said he doesn't know. As a company provides professional contracting solution, I don't think "I don't know" is a acceptable answer.

    Never again!

    I worked at TEKMARK Global Solutions as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Got me working after a layoff. The pay wasn't bad at the time, but my recruiter overpromised and under delivered.

    Cons

    Contracting only works if you don't care about raises or benefits. My recruiter rarely checked up on me, and was never available if I had any questions. He once offered to get me a salary increase, but never followed through.

    My employee status changed at the beginning of the year once, and I suddenly lost my PTO benefits. My recruiter told me not to worry about it, and Tekmark charged me back for the PTO when I left the company. Fortunately, I saved all my timesheets and fought it.

    They would not give me a reference when I was trying to get another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at your contractors as nothing more than commission pay for the recruiters. Follow up with them if they have questions, and check in on them from time to time.

    I worked at TEKMARK Global Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pros: If you work hard they show some appreciation; but never too much, which is disappointing. Can work remotely at time if weather is bad. Solid training for new employees in most areas.

    Cons

    Cons: Private and family owned - they get away with a lot in terms of negative employee interactions, if they had a real HR management could be better coached. CEOs family members are all employed there, regardless of skill. Weak PTO package
