    I have been working at Tescom

    Pros

    Central London based
    Salary package looked good on paper
    High staff turnover - makes it interesting to meet new employees :)

    Corporate management - on a different planet
    They lied to me about the role
    They lied to customers - to cover up their incompetence
    No teamwork between management and staff
    High Staff Turnover (surprise surprise)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the 21st century - and be honest with staff and customers

    Hire strong med level management staff that are good managers that can motivate the team and not "work task trackers"

    Former Employee - Software Tester in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Tescom

    Pros

    Can't find even a single reason.
    The only reason I worked there was I was getting paid and that too - at half the market rate.

    And in order to survive it better to have something rather than nothing.

    Cons

    - You will be treated like dogs.
    - No training provided.
    - No help or information provided.
    - They can terminate you at any point without giving any notice and reason (Look into your contract).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better change your attitude.

  8. Great company to work for if only there are some strategic investment and direction

    I worked at Tescom

    Pros

    There are some great people working in Tescom (some have moved on) from which you can learn a lot of things. As it is a consultancy it offers you the opportunity to work in multiple client sides and multiple industries. If you were to work on a management level you will also have the opportunity to meet annually your counterparts from the various countries that Tescom has offices in. This exchange of experiences is invaluable. The client base consisted of some big names and provides every consultant with a worth while experience. The salaries are descent if you have the experience.

    Cons

    Senior management should look more into long term investment. The only investment they are looking at is the one with an immediate return. When you are working on-site with clients you are generally "out-of-sight-and-out-of-mind". There has been no carreer progression and there is certainly no knowledge retainment (eventhough some of the tools are available for that). There is no communication and what there is drips with corporate correctness gone mad, which then turns into mis-communication. The Top management seems to meddle (not steer) the local management to such a degree that it feels more like an interference than a help. There are a lot of ad-hoc managment decisions that make the company look like it does not have a direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about strategic direction and investment
    Look after your greatest assets (your consultants) and not think "oh we pay them their salary, that should be enough".
    Improve local communication and get it free from corporate interference.
