    Pros

    You can learn a lot more here than you can at a large firm early on. Use this opportunity to grow a skill set and network.

    Cons

    There isn't much of a culture, leadership does not listen to feedback, pay is low compared to market, and there are a lot of people that drag down the quality of work. Also, just as an FYI, HR asks new hires to submit favorable reviews on glassdoor to raise the rankings.

    Advice to Management

    Just because it has worked in the past, doesn't mean it always will.

    I worked at TekLink International full-time

    Pros

    The position of associate is what you make it! Amazing opportunity to learn about the business of tech consulting and expand your technical knowledge base on leading tech in the market place. Depending on the culture of your practicing team, employees get the chance to work with very intelligent, hard working individuals that will aid in attaining your personal goals . Teklink has very a social atmosphere that is supported by management in an expanding budget for social events. This company exemplifies corporate social responsibility by sponsoring amazing programs for the underprivileged in India however, US based programs can use some work. Always got paid on time.

    Cons

    This company is built off of questionable Human Resource programs that are not consistent with it's great employees. Examples of this include requiring a dreadful intelligence exam to interview that which most every candidate fails but is hired regardless, a tricky employment contract that states generalities that are meant to mislead candidates in regards to benefits and compensation, unlawful non-compete clauses, and performance as it is not measured on an individual basis but rather every associate will receive equal increases regardless of performance. If the candidate can get over these instances they will have a very successful career with Teklink.

    Advice to Management

    Create a transparent culture that facilitates teamwork and development. The need to protect assets is common and understandable in the technology business, that said, be honest and upfront with candidates, employees, and clients and work to create a culture that supports its assets instead of allowing them to feel as if they are getting ripped off. This will decrease turnover and create a positive working environment,

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

    Pros

    Hires from good schools and with good experience but then finds difficult to retain them. Operates in an industry which is in high demand but then doesn't invest in training employees.

    Cons

    Very unethical business practices. Pretentious about being transparent and equal opportunity employer. Do not treat employees fairly, nickel and dimes on expenses, bonuses/commissions and raises. Expects employees to pay out of pocket for expenses in lieu of opportunity to attend conferences and training and seminars..

    Advice to Management

    You are operating in the US so adapt to the environment. Employees are your assets so treat them well and do not discriminate based on visa status, ethnicity etc.

    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 (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!
