    I have been working at TCG, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with some of the best people who are intelligent and care about the product. Very family friendly, competitive salaries, and great benefits/perks.

    Cons

    None that aren't inherent with government contracting -- contracts can get lost/changed, but management goes above and beyond to find room on other contracts for employees, instead of letting them go. Which is great -- talent is hard to find and easier to retain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Thanks for your feedback. You’re right — our TCGers are very intelligent and invested in their projects. The recruitment team works really hard to bring outstanding talent to TCG. It would be a shame... More

    Pros

    Work life balance. Great benefits. Flexible work hours. Great managers and team to work with.
    Benefits I like:
    TCG contributes 1000 dollars a month for sprees ( Top Golf, Bowling, Fishing) organized by employees . TCG has a nice vacation home in the mountains and is free ( just have to pay cleaning expenses) for employees.

    Cons

    I have nothing to say.

    I worked at TCG, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Not 1 I could think of

    Cons

    They didn't seem to actually practice what they preached. One of their core values was honesty but they delete bad reviews for their own glory despite them being true. Lack of maturity in workers. When the position feel through, the person who managed me actually asked me if I wanted to keep working despite my employment being removed. Poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Actually practice what you preach.

    TCG does not delete reviews. That power just doesn’t exist for us. On your behalf, we contacted Glassdoor’s support team. They tell us that Glassdoor assesses and screens reviews (independently of... More

    I have been working at TCG, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm very happy to be a part of TCG. I feel valued and know that all levels of management welcome my feedback on everything from the direction of the company, to what benefits are offered (there are many), to personal career development. The company mission focuses not only on success in business but on doing good in the world. Teleworking is strongly encouraged provided it meets the client's needs, which I appreciate both as a work/life balance benefit and for the reduced environmental impact of fewer employees commuting to the office every day. The company is serious about doing great work but the culture is fun and a little bit quirky.

    Cons

    TCG does primarily government contracting, so flexibility of working from home depends on the client.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    TCG, Inc. Response

    29 Oct 2018 – Marketing & Communications Specialist

    Yes, we are serious about doing good work -- for our clients, staff, our community, and the world around us :)
