A new learning experience
Secretary/Office Manager (Former Employee), Beaverton, MIApril 15, 2015
Pros: Great pay, great experience
Cons: Dangerous, lots of travel
Though it's considered one of the most dangerous careers out there, it offers a big learning experience and stability. But you need to be determined to work in this field. You must be willing to travel and be gone for weeks at a time. The pay is great, but must be willing to be open.

Manager, Technical Training (Technology) (Current Employee), Seattle, WAApril 7, 2015
Pros: Interesting and technology rich projects, great people, company doing great!
Cons: Never ending urgent projects, life/work balance not in balance.
If you are dedicated to really contributing to the work you are doing, your promotion opportunities are limitless.

There are many teams doing great work. If you happen to fall into a team not doing great work, you can always move to another team.

InfoCision (Former Employee), Austintown, OHOctober 14, 2014
Pros: made money fast
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
Show up for work 15 minutes prior to clocking in. Learned everything about Verizon Wireless, from the hot spot to limiting lines. Management was on point, alway there with any questions that needed answered. My co workers were very easy to work with, made a few friends as well. The hardest part of the job was getting the customers to trust me with changing plans, which is understandable.

Integrated Logistical Support Coordinator (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJune 17, 2014
This is a great place to work for any one with technical experiance although business is slow know because of the return of Military units from oversees which is TCS's primary business. Hours are flexible and we leave early on many days. You can also leave early for emergencies and use lunch hours to make up time. Not a good place for minorities as there are a lot of racist remarks about minorities. I have witnessed firsthand.
