Diverse culture with many foreign employees and collaboration across many countries. Local management cares but hands are tied by management in Sweden.
Employees are treated as commodities, not people. Quick to layoff people if a project ends and they are on the bench.
Good benefit like health insurance
They send people randomly to customer site all over the place, so you cannot plan your life.
Advice to Management
you need a good management people.
Some people are fantastic to work with, others really need to learn some human interaction skills and let go of their ego's.
Pay is well below market. Management (generally speaking) is completely and utterly clueless. Their mentality is a "resources" and "bench" mentality. Even those on a salary are treated as an hourly resource and you are only as good as the current project you are assigned to. If you have no project, they will panic and it won't be long before you are let go (yes, even those on a full-time salaried position). Their approach to landing deals is bizarre. They will turn down a deal (regardless if strategically it would be a big win for the company portfolio) simply because it isn't enough money (even if the revenue is what the market rate is for that type of project). Teleca has an overinflated sense of self-worth that is not deserved and quite frankly, the work coming out of the India and Russian offices is sub-par at best and typically has to be redone before presenting to a client (which is where the profit margins are lost). The delivery organization is beyond broken due to poor leadership. They simply don't have a good grasp on how to run a business in the US.
Advice to Management
Your business model is broken and unsustainable in todays economy. You can only burn your customers and employees so many times before you have nothing left to burn. Stop being so short-sighted and conservative about everything and learn to take some managed risks in order to grow the business. Your biggest and realistically, your only assets, are your employees. They are what you sell because without them, you have nothing to offer a client. Talent is your asset and you are quite frankly burning your bridges in every town you do business. Your reputation is not good at all and you simply cannot continue to operate in this fashion without irreparable damage to your company and brand.
