    I have been working at Teq full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) Phone Screen - pretty standard, past exp, resume, etc
    2) Project/Assignment - testing your ability to understand Teq's product
    3) Assignment- Demo your project

    The recruiter was very fast and efficient. Loved working with them throughout the process.

    Cons

    I'd love a more casual dress code

    Pros

    People tend to forget to write when they are happy on these anonymous reviews. There are always going to be things to be "unhappy" about wherever you are. I truly feel that TEQ is a good place to work. I enjoy coming to work and doing my job around a great team here.

    Cons

    There are too many people here with "Titles" (ones that abuse it) How many Executives, Managers, Directors could there be in a fairly small company.

    Advice to Management

    Let's go casual everyday!!!!!!
    Additional SICK PTO days would be great
    Get rid of the dead weight managers, we need mentors here not babysitters

    I worked at Teq full-time

    Pros

    People you work with (although most of sales has either quit or gotten fired in the last month)

    Good products to sell and support

    Good clientele

    Cons

    No direction and no growth
    They do not treat sales well and unfortunately, if you are in sales prepared to be treated like a child.
    Sales goals do NOT align with any other goals in the company.
    Factors uncontrollable by sales severly affects your compensation
    Micromanagement, micromanagement, micromanagement. I cannot stress that enough.

    Advice to Management

    Treat sales better.
    Stop pushing away or firing loyal and well performing sales reps.
    Boost morale and company culture

    Pros

    A paycheck, and they have music while you go to the bathroom. Decent bathrooms over all matter of fact.

    Cons

    Just wanted to write on here again and let all potential new hires know; all the positive reviews were forced upon employees by managers. We were bribed to write something positive with a free lunch and would be reprimanded if we did not write one. The president of Sales is one of the most arrogant selfish people I have ever met, he is just straight up rude. .....RUN

    In the spirit of transparency, you’re correct. There was a time when people were encouraged to write reviews by a former employee. However, that employee (which you mentioned in your review) was... More

    I have been working at Teq full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are great to work with and the customers who are in education are great to work with. Most of the products are cool to sell, they offer coffee throughout the week, and a snack cart in the afternoons.

    Cons

    The management team is not good at effectively doing their jobs. Mangement makes wise remarks to people across the room so everyone can hear it and it's really embarrassing. You can bring in a lot of money for the company and get paid almost nothing because the targets are very high. Also, the commission structure is poorly designed. You have to hit both a hardware number and/or a software number to make money. So you can essentially bring in a lot of money for the company, but if you don't hit a target you make no commission at ALL. Worse than that you make less than 1% in hardware even if you bring in a million dollars. They barely take care of the sales team when you do hit your numbers. They used to do BBQs and happy hours for the sales team, but not anymore. Now we are told we have to celebrate on our own time and the company isn't responsible for doing so. The worst part of the whole situation is they have meetings and in these meetings, management tells you if you don't like it then you should just quit.

    Advice to Management

    You need to improve the morale of the sales team. Noone wants to go to work at a place where they are embarrassed by management, not able to make a decent living and not celebrated for hitting their numbers. On top of that, you should really rethink your strategy of telling people if they don't like it then quit.

    Pros

    We have a strong offering of innovative products that have traction in many northeast school districts. Our online PD is great idea although it has been unsuccessful.

    Cons

    Employees are treated like cattle and CEO doesn’t put his foot down to stop this treatment by Department heads and supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Work on company retention instead of hiring and firing.

    Pros

    There is a great culture with an amazing group of people. The company rewards employees for their hard work. The snack cart, with Hot food Thursdays and Bagel Friday’s are the best. Lot’s of charity work, Football pools, sponsored company sporting events and March Madness make for a fun environment.

    Cons

    Would like to see some more PTO days
    Would like to see Casual Dress Code
