    TBI Rehires Four Employees: Why I Came Back to TBI

    TBI, named one of Chicago's best places to work by Crain's Chicago Business in 2018, is not only a great company to work for; it's a great company to come back to. In the past year, four different employees who had previously left TBI to pursue other opportunities have made the decision to return, not just for the career opportunities, but for the environment and people as well.

  • We're excited to announce that our Director of Post Sales, Bryan Reynolds, has been named one of Chicago's Notable LGBTQ Executives by Crain's Chicago Business alongside many other top Chicago execs. Congratulations, Bryan!

Telecom Brokerage – Why Work For Us?


undefinedTBI entered the Master Agency business back in 1991 with a simple premise: To always remember that our partners are our customers.                                                         

We have worked with our partners as technology has evolved at an unprecedented pace. From a singular focus on providing the very best telecommunications services and contracts available, to offering a host of managed products and services delivered straight from the cloud.

We have striven always to deliver the type of white-glove service rarely found in the industry. To take the time to learn our partners’ businesses. To deal fairly and forthrightly. To provide genuine counsel instead of just quotes.

That’s why, time and again, our partners tell me that the TBI team is the most knowledgeable and most responsive group of professionals they have ever done business with.

If you are an existing partner, my sincere thanks. Your trust in us has fueled the consistent growth we’ve experienced over the past two-and-a-half decades. Growth for which we’re profoundly grateful. Please know we will never forget that we work for you.

If you are a prospective partner just exploring the distribution landscape, we hope you’ll provide us an opportunity to tell you a little bit more about our company – and, more importantly, how we can work with you to bring your business a greater level of success.

We serve our partners well so that they can serve their customers well.

That’s why we’re in business. That’s what makes us TBI.

    I have been working at Telecom Brokerage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love being part of a company that keeps growing and promoting people. In my 15 years in the workforce, I have never been at an established company that still has consistent growth year over year, and opportunities for people to work their way up. I also really like that despite all of the benefits the company offers, they continue to find new programs to offer to their employees to keep things new and up to date with current trends.

    Cons

    There are always opportunities for improvement, but I think the company is moving in the right direction and takes feedback to work on areas that may need help.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide transparency to employees, it goes a long way.

    Interview

    TBI's interview process was professional and timely in their response and decision making process. Each person I encountered was well informed and answered each question I had. I would definitely recommend this company to others looking for not only employment but a place where they know your name!
