    I have been working at TekLink International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at TekLink for 3 months and am having a positive experience. The people are great to work with and very helpful from your peers all the way to the CEO. The company provides great flexibility and although everyone is busy, encourages work life balance. I have seen this flexibility with first hand with team members.

    We just moved to a new office location in Warrenville, IL and it is bigger and better!

    Cons

    Have not experienced a downside at TekLink International. I hope I never do :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and with the new addition of the standard processes and protocols being put in place it's going to be that much better!

    Pros

    Can't think of many but if I have to write then US (Citizen) hires are much better to work with than the other contract hires.
    Please note most reviews on Glassdoor are from TLI India Employees. TLI India has much better policies compared to TLI US. But they lack overall vision and strategy information.

    Cons

    Looks good on paper but in reality the management violates multiple parts of the initial offer letter. They also try to make you sign the offer letter and NDA without giving you enough time. Make sure to read everything and add clarifying clauses where ever you need them. They avoid writing clarifying clauses in the offer letter and maintain ambiguity to use to their advantage so get everything no matter how big or small in writing. Insist on changing contract and NDA language. Contact a lawyer if you have to before signing anything. The management tries to strong arm employees into accepting changes specially if you are a fresher with an indenturement clause in the offer letter

    Family owned business so a lot of employees are "family members" or "pseudo-family members" making for limited growth opportunities also "family members" have a sense of entitlement and lack common curtsy when others do not agree with their style of working

    Most project leads/managers are core technology people who have been with the company long enough but they lack basic management skills, knowledge and aptitude making for unhealthy and unorganized team and project delivery environment

    Since over 70% employees are Indians and most of them are on H1B there is a clear divide between H1B holders and US Citizens. Making for a very politically raged environment
    The HR makes a very minimal effort to connect with people and understand their issues and problem. Most of the time it’s their way or the highway.

    The trend is shifting from a consulting firm to a contracting firm. TLI management is trying to grow the business by shifting costs onto the employees which they fail to mention during the interview process.

    Do not trust the HR or even the top management’s word. It actually means nothing. On multiple occasion they do a complete 180 from what they said in the past, in some cases on things they give in writing as well. Also avoid talking with the HR. Reach out to the top brass directly. The HR is not worth your time and are highly incorrigible. Most top consultants have recently quit due to their opaque practices and policies.

    Advice to Management

    Change US HR personnel
    Be more transparent

    I have been working at TekLink International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ekLink is a great company to work for because
    - It is a small company, simple org structure
    - Fairly transparent, if there are issues one can approach senior management very easily
    - Personal growth prospects are high as company is growing
    - Has everything for a consulting company without the iron-fist / politics of managers as in large consulting companies

    Cons

    Family owned or relatives but usually the don't interfere between oneself and job content
    Sometimes a bit possessive on intellectual assets as this is typical for growth

    Advice to Management

    Way to go TekLink team... Keep the employees at the core of growth as you usually do, help the employees build enhance skills especially for lateral ones... Thanks!

    Great workplace environment and very diverse employees. Also, a helpful mentorship program and an in-depth training process. Obvious expertise in the field of SAP.

    I worked at TekLink International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company initially looked good on papers with niche BW knowledge base. But after working few years, found its only very few people are worth (about 5-6).

    Cons

    Give wrong information to employees, not keeping commitment, lower salaries, mostly employees like any other consulting company, Complete family driven business. no freedom to speak. Never work with them in future. Most of employees are today from Indian consulting companies like TCS,Infosys India.

    Advice to Management

    Get externals.
