    I have been working at TKC Global full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was only there for almost a year and it wasn't bad. The people were friendly and not really micromanaged.

    Cons

    The department I worked in was not organized. Too many changes too fast.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and listen to the people on the front line.

    No contact or support from HQ other than account manager. Feel that you are just an income stream.

    I worked at TKC Global as a contractor (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 Management

    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.

    Teamwork. Employees support each other and have good friendship to support client. Also, management is really support and help employee members aware contract status and changes.

    Need to really flexible and dynamic to support client which some time took time to get received support or find documentation.

    I have been working at TKC Global as a contractor (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.


  10. "Great for experience on your resume"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA

    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 Management

    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.
