    Former Employee - IT Systems Engineer in O'Fallon, IL

    I worked at TKC Global as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ability to telework when requested, time-off was almost always granted when requested. Most of the leadership cared about employees as individuals.

    Cons

    No real room for growth, glass ceiling came very quickly. Under-utilization abounds, having senior level engineers doing tasks that should be done by junior level engineers. Current CEO does not care about individual employees, only about the bottom line for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Healthcare was better before the giant merger into Akima, should try to return to pre-merger benefits. Currently, benefits are are the same for all Akima companies, and not all of them are in the same sector of work. Each company should be more directly involved with its own healthcare purchasing for employees, rather than the corporate conglomerate.

    I have been working at TKC Global as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I really like the attitude with the company that is pretty much "just get the job done." Nobody really looking over your shoulder. As long as the hiring contract holders are happy the company just keeps droping checks in the mail.

    Cons

    Never really see management as you contract at a location away from where the home office is located. When I first began I would see my Project Manager every week but as time went by. I only spoke with him through email or txt messageing.

    I have been working at TKC Global

    Pros

    Great manager. Very flexible schedule. Fair benefits.

    Cons

    Infrastructure is non existant. No rewards program. No training (CBT) programs. Performance objectives and reviews were held within two weeks of each and we not S.M.A.R.T. Lack of communication when the contract was ending for a transition plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build metrics and structure to actually let people know how to get promoted and move up. Most people don't want to stay at their current level (salary included!) forever. Get some free training and not just tuition reimbursement.
