A senior I.T project manager shared this in a review, "As a consultant I tolerated teco but I have never felt more like the hired help. They would never invite us to company meetings but always expected us to be a team player. The last kick was they didn't want to approve my vacation because other might be over worked while I was gone. No doubt management is in for themselves and no one else. I even uncovered wrongful billing to them and was told to just leave it alone it would look bad if they brought it to light."

They will hire a temporary class after you and they get to get off work before you. You have to report to zero chaos . They lie and say your doctors appointments or any other important appointments are approved and they're actually not . They show favoritism, a lot of drama , and everyone talking mess about each other. The ladies in zero chaos show favoritism. Just horrible I could go on and on . I wouldn't recommend this comapny at all.NothingEverything"
