    I worked at Technekes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work. There are no other positives to this job.

    Cons

    Terrible work environment. Treats hourly employee's like trash. No benefits offered.

    Advice to Management

    Stop depending on employee's with a degree to assist your company. You are greatly underestimating real work experience versus a kid right out of college.

    Pros

    The job itself was easy and the longer you did it the easier it got.

    Cons

    Horrible treatment to all hourly employees. If not in a salary position or in the HQ office you were subhuman.

    Advice to Management

    Stop killing endangered animals and putting them up in your office.

    Pros

    Great team. Great environment. Great clients. In a nutshell, for me, the teamwork, the culture and the day-to-day make Technekes a fun, good place to work.

    Cons

    Some of the flatness of the organization can make it appear that career paths are unclear.

    Pros

    Fun place to work....laid back....you can even bring your dogs to work. Owners are concerned for the well being of their employees.

    Cons

    More communications between managers & team leads.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with whats going on with new projects & not just assume all is well.

    Pros

    Traveling for the customer meetings was a lot of fun
    Customers themselves were great people to work with

    Cons

    Know that this is a telemarketing company! It was not sold like that to me. A few calls a day to customers is not the same as a minimum of 25 calls to prospective customers
    Negative and critical upper level management
    Shoddy benefits/retirement with no match

    I have been working at Technekes full-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed getting to speak to clients and customers all over the US about the products that they had purchased and applied. Thoroughly enjoyed marketing efforts between channel partners, but I think that most of that was brought on by said Manufacturers not technekes. Great Learning experience, resume builder.

    Cons

    I cannot speak for the Charlotte Office, But as for the Morrisville Office is concerned- This place is utter chaos. "Management" really could care less about "MIC" employees. As someone who majored in college in Management, I find it quite embarrasing for Techenkes that they are completely unfamilar with what the term "management" even is, or none the less how to function in said managment based and marketing thrived environment. I felt like most of the time the "team leaders" of the MIC looked down to the fellow employees and and were very condescending when teaching employees. There is no sense of organization for this business, in fact one team leader ran around the office with his head cut off the majority of the time- only getting work done a slight minority of the time and neglecting any relevant issues to MIC employees.

    Advice to Management

    Advice for Management- MIC employees make this place thrive, and they need to be better appreciated, and MIC Team Leaders should be better monitored by management, because they are unorganized and unprofessional.

    Pros

    Technekes has vision, is successful, works hard to serve their clients.

    Cons

    At times life at Technekes gets very busy.
    To get your work done you must be good at prioritizing, be detail oriented, and driven to serve your client/accomplish your work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stress positive feedback, reward for hard work!

    I have been working at Technekes full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are the absolute best thing about Technekes. At all levels we have smart people that are helping to deliver huge value to our customers. These customers are constantly wowed by the service and tools we deliver which makes me proud to come to work for over eight years now. We're often challenged by our customers to make magic happen and the team always comes together to deliver. We work hard and have fun doing it.

    Community involvement is a pretty big part of the culture. There are a number of big and small charities that everybody at the company gets involved in. The company encourages people to get involved and this has turned out to have some great results and impact on our local communities.

    Cons

    This is a place to learn, grow and build a career - if you are looking to just get by or "punch the clock" this is probably not a good fit. The pace is high energy and high quality is an expectation. That's not a con but can feel intense to those not used to working in that environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on great people and quality.
