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

    Pros

    Great owners of company, great CEO.

    Cons

    Family owned business, growth opportunities have some limitations, consulting firm is new and growing fast. Consultants are frequency place in roles to fit a company need and not your area of expertise. This causes stagnation in your career. Over promise staff but under deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Stand by your word and what you promise. Stop placing professionals, like doctors of analytics in Business analysis role. Create an environment of success for your team, trust your team and stop hiring friends of friends to manage your staff, they are not leaders.

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

    Pros

    It IS a full time job, with insurance and paid holiday/vacation which is not common in telecom.

    Cons

    Don't expect a bonus, a raise, or to take time off if there is no work. It isn't really a salary, they WILL dock you of you don't punch the clock at work for 40 hours even during a project freeze.

    But if you are heavily loaded you are expected to work as much time as needed with no Comp or OT. They follow Indian timekeeping standard, so take a book when there is a freeze.

    Three years, no raises and less than 2 weeks notice of group closing, no severance and some vacation pay was "surrendered" because I was not able to take it. Be aware you won't get anything they don't HAVE to give you, to the penny -- keep EVERYTHING you sign.

    Advice to Management

    Even a modest pay increase negotiated with your client each year will make happier employees.

    Pros

    If you're a fresher or out of a job, and possess skills in telecommunications engineering this might be a good place to start with. The environment might be better for their recruiters, legal, administrative assistants and other staff at the head office.

    Cons

    5 vacation days in a year, No 401(k) match, No yearly pay increments, No great benefits. Management isn't really interested in your growth. They are primarily a staffing company that doesn't take care of the working environment of the employees they staff for their clients. The management in general shows an attitude of arrogance and smugness towards the engineers they staff. Many of the engineers they staff are dependent on a work visa (H1-B) and look for Green Card sponsorship, and the company takes them for a ride, delaying these processes as much as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, and they'll take better care of your clients. Make an effort to interact more with not just your head office employees (recruiters, legal, admin staff), but also with the engineers you staff. Be genuinely interested in your employees who interact with your clients. Try improving the working conditions for them and inspire an environment of true leadership. Give them a path to grow career-wise to different roles. Don't be insecure about your employees leaving for your client. If you create a good environment with good benefits and inspire the employees (once again it's the ones that face your client and not just the ones within your main office), they will automatically work harder and do well overall and please your clients.

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

    Pros

    None.....Even the Benefits are sub par.....
    This is a totally UNBIASED, Fair and Honest feedback.....

    Cons

    SAMSUNG has WORLDLINK as its ONLY resources provider (Not sure if it is Legal in United States and they must have twisted the Law to make it barely legal i guess). This situation leveraged WORLDLINK to treat their employees/contractors as bad as they can. Therfore there is a huge dissatisfactin among employess and therefore lots of people come and go at WORLDLINK and practically donot care genuinely supporting SAMSUNG's customer ie VERIZON and therefore VERIZON is getting truly bad service. WHY Someone in SAMSUNG made a decision to have only one Company as its resources and not to have competition or multiple vendor for Excellence will always remain a Mystery.

    Why VERIZON (with all its outages and bad service etc) and knowingly supporting SAMSUNG to have WORLDLINK as its only source is a big question mark. SAMSUNG perhaps does not allow Competition (a foreign company and who knows what) but why VERIZON not seeing wrong with it which afterall impacting their services and customers, makes me wonder...Why, VERIZON not demanding for competition from SAMSUNG to get best of the best supporting their Network and not half harted burned employees of WORLDLINK who practically do not care because not that they are bad people but they were being mistreated by WORLDLINK big time and I have spoken and known lots of them excluding cheap H1B labor who walk and talk per WORLDLINK desire...

    So for those trying to get onboard, and if you have an option and you are not a cheap H1B labor then TRUST ME and stay away from WORLDLINK as far as you can. In any case Think several times and Think hard..

    Advice to Management

    Not sure if anyone advised the CEO that he is best suited to run Prison Camps etc ....you are in the wrong business

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

    Pros

    After 2.5 years at Worldlink, I STILL think about how lucky I am to be part of such an amazing company. Why is it amazing? I am constantly reminded that I'm working towards our mission. We are helping people everywhere find the jobs and companies that they love. That means we're helping people CHANGE THEIR LIFE! Oh...and the Holiday parties are always amazing.

    Cons

    I don't think any company can say that they are perfect, and we have all made our fair share of mistakes. I think WorldLink tries to learn quickly from their mistakes and pivot or change as needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing it back to our mission! It's what keeps us on path.
