    I worked at TekWorks, Inc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Payroll checks do not bounce, at certain times of the year they do have plenty of work.

    Cons

    Does not promote from within, will go out to other companies and hire other talent away, while ignoring current employees. Internal processes are not easily navigated. Mid-level management has no idea how to simplify processes, handle employees or learn from mistakes. President is a tinker not an executive. Plenty of talented, bright individuals, but that does not translate in the ability to 'work smarter.'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone who knows how to run a mid-size company.

    Learned how a company should not be run, and how not to treat employees

    I worked at TekWorks, Inc

    Pros

    Constant work available during "on season"

    Cons

    Incompetent management, blatant nepotism, fraternization, dishonesty with customers, backstabbing encouraged by management.
    Employees were encouraged to lie to customers when mistakes were made by designers, orders not placed on time because someone "forgot." In one instance the customer was made to pay extra to cover parking for technician working on their building. I was told the company would buy us a monthly parking permit, but this did not happen. Tekworks pocketed the money and technicians still had to pay out of pocket to park downtown every day. This is only one minor example.
    They have a very high turnover rate from senior management all the way down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the incompetent people and be more loyal to employees

    It has been a great place to learn and grow. The AV team is a growing monster in the industry and will soon be the standard

    Long hours, and alot is expected of its employees, only the best in the field have been accepted lately. High expectations for quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is pretty cool, very flexible and easy to work with. The high expectations for quality is a good goal.
