    I have been working at Telecom Brokerage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love being part of a company that keeps growing and promoting people. In my 15 years in the workforce, I have never been at an established company that still has consistent growth year over year, and opportunities for people to work their way up. I also really like that despite all of the benefits the company offers, they continue to find new programs to offer to their employees to keep things new and up to date with current trends.

    Cons

    There are always opportunities for improvement, but I think the company is moving in the right direction and takes feedback to work on areas that may need help.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide transparency to employees, it goes a long way.

    Pros

    TBI is a great company to work for. The office has a great environment and culture. It really feels more like being a part of a family rather than just being an employee going to work each day.

    Cons

    Have not come across any.

    Pros

    -Strong mentorship available from executive team
    -Promotion and career pathing from within
    -Great company culture
    -Excellent benefits and 401K matching
    -Convenient location with access to airport, highway, and CTA blue line

    At TBI, if you are willing to put in the work and gain the knowledge for a particular role, there is nothing stopping you from career pathing yourself or with the help of a mentor into any position in any department.

    Cons

    -work from home policy could be improved

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path you have set for yourself

    Pros

    Great culture where I can interact with most teams within the company.
    TBI has been challenging yet rewarding.
    No project is the same, you won't be bored.
    Healthy balance between life/work.
    Some traveling for events.
    Leadership is always accommodating in times where you need to work remote.
    PTO has been very good.
    Good compensation, with plenty of rewards including Presidents Club
    Leadership pushing to constantly improve themselves and the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Health insurance has to fall here. But realistically this would happen in most companies for me

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. Continue to push to better communication, better the culture, and overall just keep helping to make this a great place to work.

    Pros

    Room to grow and learn. Opportunity for advancement. Great leadership that's transparent about the direction the company is headed. The company has met and exceed expectations in year one.

    Cons

    The company is scaling fast. With rapid changes come growing pains. This may be disruptive for those seeking a repeatable routine. You have to be prepared to take ownership and not wait for instruction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the all company town-hall style meetings. Great for team building e.g. the movie theater, but also helps everyone to feel like we've got a stake in the over all health of the company.
