Network Engineer (Former Employee), Falls Church, VA – September 30, 2013
Pros: good money, good benefits
Cons: toxic culture at the office, dishonest, manipulative owners
A typical day in the office consisted of fearing the management and waiting for the other shoe to to drop. The money is great, but I would not wish a job with this organization on my worst enemy. Co-workers and peers were great, but the two owners were the worst people met.
The owners were nice during the interview process. I was told that I was replacing – more... a person who left the country suddenly. Since my first day at work, I found the company culture toxic. Everyone walked around on egg shells all the time because of ill-tempered management. People were constantly "tested" by being setup to fail and be yelled at.
Everyone was treated like "the help" one of the owners would start a conversation and the suddenly turn around and walk away mid-sentence.
Do not take any job with this organization if you expect to be treated as a human being.
3 months after I started with this awful company, it was revealed that I was only hired as a temporary replacement for a gentleman who took an extended vacation. – less
accounting (Current Employee), Oldsmar, FL – August 27, 2014
we work long hours in accounting and we have to be very careful not to upset management or we will be ostracized from the group. They take us out once in a while to have fun but then we have to work a lot of hours to make up the work when we are back in the office. we are encouraged to not go to the all team meetings because it takes up too much time. – more... everything is very secretive and people that make too many waves by trying to do things differently end up leaving. a couple people were able to go to another part of the company but one ended up back in accounting and is now working longer hours for lower pay. if you are okay with being micromanaged you will like it here. I just do what I'm told and don't make waves. Management says they want to create a certain culture but we don't know what they're taking about. I like most of the other people here but some managers are rude but they won't change because they are friends with the ones in charge. – less
Marketing/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Wilkesboro, NC – August 20, 2014
Pros: good learning environment.
Cons: no benefits
Organization was a problem. The people were friendly and helpful, but lacked some organization skills. The job was a good learning curve but the potential to be pro active was not available. There was a very nice office environment with ease of parking and location was close to other businesses.
good company to work for. Everyone was treated like family
Customer Service Administrator (Former Employee), Houston, TX – April 11, 2014
Working at TSG Maher was a good experience. The owner treated everyone like family. We all got along and worked well together. Our clients even enjoyed working with us. We went out of our way to please each client. The job was not hard but was a lot of work. Due to downsizing was laid off.
Very productive workplace, with a ping pong table and nice recreational lunch/break room to wind down.
Customer Service Representative/Lead Assistant (Former Employee), Jericho, NY – July 11, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: very difficult to advance within
Great company consistently allowing opportunity, but also has a high turnover rate. Typical days would consist of a high volume of inbound calls. After a few months I was able to gain the ability to get off the phones to be an assistant to other leads and supervisors. Gained my first opportunity to lead and train other employees as well as new members – more... of the TSG team. Handled supervisor calls and other management type scenarios prior to sending up to the appropriate department/manager. – less
Survey Specialist II (Government Contractor) (Current Employee), San Bernardino, CA – January 28, 2013
Lay offs every year, and poor management structure. It is decent if you are looking for a stepping stone into another company or boost in your career and resume. Fired all of our management and now we are having trouble working as a team and completing the tasks at hand. ):
Great place to work but no room to move up the through the company at this time

Operations coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NY – August 21, 2012
I been working with this company since thy opened and I've learned a lot. I am grateful for everything this company and taught me and wish to Continue to work hard for other companies just like this one.
Senior Test Technician (Current Employee), Lapeer, MI – April 23, 2012
Pros: great supervisors, and engineers
Cons: compensation for hard working technicians
I began working there with very little experience, and as the years went by, I've learned quite a lot and now I have been teaching newer technicians what i have learned.
The typical work day is busy with setups, teardowns and updating ongoing tests. The co-workers are very knowledgable in what they do, and helps having universal technicians that I – more... have taught, to help with the workload.
The hardest part of the job, is since they have limited technicians available that are universal, which is being knowledgable in all departments, it makes it difficult to keep up with the workload. – less
Receptionist (Current Employee), London, ENG – April 1, 2014
Pros: 1hour lunch break.
Cons: staying in work an extra hour or two due to night guards arriving to work late.
I currently work 9am-6pm Monday to Friday. In the mornings i have to sort out incoming post for each individual companies that work in the building, sort out staff milk. Inspect all the females toilets to make sure the cleaners are doing their job correctly. There's two reception desks in the building i currently work at. I work with a building manager – more... who also sits at one reception desk while i sit at the other, both reception desks need to be occcupied by a member of staff. I would say from 9am-2pm is the busy time where we receive lots of visitors during the day, when some companies have events going on. Myself and the building manager are always given notice by tennants in the building if their expecting important packages, and requesting us what they would like us to do when their packages arrives. From 2pm-6pm is when the reception can become quiet, where there are less visitors and staff finishing work for the day.
I wouldn't say there's ever been a hardest part of the job, because reception work is really easy, and i've been doing receptionist role for the past 4years. But once a fire alarm was set off while i was working, and i was the only person in charge of the building before the night guard arrived to work. I was left in charge to figure out what zone the fire alarm was set off, how to silent the alarm from ringing by using a instruction book and to make a call out to the maintenance company that works at the building. – less
Corporate Security Officer (Current Employee), London – February 22, 2014
In a typical day at work I arrive on site and recieve a briefing from the client about the events for the day and what needs to be implemented to ensure this runs smoothly, I.E. getting names of visitors and pre booking them into the system.
I have learned more in this role about the facilities management side of the job as well as honing my security – more... and customer service skills.
I have one co-worker who is very pleasant and helpful and this helps to create a very positive atmosphere for all staff, clients and visitors.
The hardest part of my job is managing the day to day needs of the reception team and co workers, however this is the most enjoyable part of my job because I am learning something new every day and expanding my knowledge of management skills. – less
Office Clerk (Former Employee), Letchworth – November 1, 2012
A typical day at work for me at TSG would be largely be spent filing and part of it would be spent assigning jobs on the computer system for the engineers. My co-workers were all pleasant, helpful and friendly.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Edinburgh – May 28, 2012
Pros: gift vouchers from management to show their appreciation.
Cons: office could be quiet.
I learned some new skills with TSG such as CRM, Sharepoint also scheduling of engineers appointment's paying attention to detail is very important when entering data. Using my own initiative was very satisfying as I worked alone most of the time. Management were always available should I have had any problem that I could not personally deal with. Staff – more... were a very happy team. – less
Assistente Administrativo (Current Employee), Nova Iguaçu, RJ – October 31, 2013
Pros: sim, alimentação junto ao salário
Aqui foi o meu primeiro emprego, estou a 3 anos, gosto muito do trabalho, só que eu já estou quase me formando e eu até agora não tive nenhum resultado de crescimento, pois a empresa não têm essa visão para com o funcionário, me dou bem com todos os colegas de trabalho. Meu encarregado se amarra na minha, me ajuda bastante, mais infelizmente o Diretor – more... da empresa não faz nada para motivar os funcionários. – less
