    I worked at TekWorks, Inc full-time

    Pros

    Their EMPLOYEES do excellent work.

    Cons

    Management lies about the type of work that they're hiring you for. Protect leads don't answer their phones. There are constant delays from the management when it comes to getting supplies to finish the job.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your physical requirements for the job descriptions and make sure your guys doing the actual work are supplied properly and on time.

    Pros

    Company wants to be the best in the business, cabling looks like artwork, not a mess. Possibilities of lateraling over to other departments, AV, Security, Fiber...competitive pay and they seem to care about their employees. They have Managers working here that started out as tech's. Office is very cool, good Teamwork... must be doing well, heard they're looking to buy a new building...recently bought one up in the LA area.

    Cons

    While they do offer some training, would like to see more. They don't keep lazy people around long (thankfully....not a con).

    I worked at TekWorks, Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Payroll checks do not bounce, at certain times of the year they do have plenty of work.

    Cons

    Does not promote from within, will go out to other companies and hire other talent away, while ignoring current employees. Internal processes are not easily navigated. Mid-level management has no idea how to simplify processes, handle employees or learn from mistakes. President is a tinker not an executive. Plenty of talented, bright individuals, but that does not translate in the ability to 'work smarter.'

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone who knows how to run a mid-size company.

    Great place to work. Hard working people easy to get along with. People that really care about the company. Upper managment is always looking for ways to improve TekWorks and is always reinvesting in the company towards it's success.

    Cons

    Difficult sometimes in the off season, Potential layoffs but no different then anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    More team building events.

    Pros

    Constant work available during "on season"

    Cons

    Incompetent management, blatant nepotism, fraternization, dishonesty with customers, backstabbing encouraged by management.
    Employees were encouraged to lie to customers when mistakes were made by designers, orders not placed on time because someone "forgot." In one instance the customer was made to pay extra to cover parking for technician working on their building. I was told the company would buy us a monthly parking permit, but this did not happen. Tekworks pocketed the money and technicians still had to pay out of pocket to park downtown every day. This is only one minor example.
    They have a very high turnover rate from senior management all the way down.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the incompetent people and be more loyal to employees
