Field Support Engineer

"When Obor Digital was no longer allotted any contracting positions out here in Afghanistan, Telecommunicatoin Systems (TCS) decided to keep me out here and transition into their company. Obor Digital and TCS worked directly together out here for many years. TCS has been a great company to work for it is just time to move on due to my contract ending fairly soon. I would highly recommend anyone in the telecommunications field to look them up and submit a resume through them if they are job hunting."

"It was okay, but there isn't much vision or guidance coming from management, and when there is, it's either fire-fighting or poor judgement."

Systems Support Engineer
in Suwanee, GA

"I worked for Telecommunication Systems from October 2012 to October 2013 and overall the company seemed pretty well rounded. My co-workers all brought something unique to the table and support from the office in Suwanee was amazing. My direct supervisor who was actually located elsewhere was a very nice guy. However, it was often times difficult to communicate with him as I often didn't get sent emails I needed, and he didn't always respond to ones that I had sent."

QA Tester

"I have worked at TCS for about 3 years now. The technologies are enjoyable to learn and work with. The Seattle area company is usually pretty lenient when it comes to work times and schedules. The last few years the projects and schedules have come so fast that the environment boarders on chaos. Burn out is a possibility."
