    I have been working at TranSystems part-time (more than 10 years)


    Civil/Structural Engineers will do well at TranSystems as that is the core experience of the upper management and doing Department of Transportation work is something the company knows how to sell, price, design and manage. The company is financially sound and employee owned.


    Other design disciplines are at a distinct disadvantage as vertical (architectural projects), that involve sheltering people, are not paid for as DOT work is and runs afoul of the business model. The under staffing in this project type has resulted in burnout in design staff, design quality issues and loss of reputation in the Federal Government market sector. There is an overburden of stock owned by the founding members that are all coming to retirement age now and in the near future. Sales are dependent on Client Managers that have "protected" clients and if the CM cannot service all their listed clients, opportunities for sales are lost. Architectural design projects are sold by relationships not by slick brochures sent from a central office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not bother to acquire any more firms that design Architectural projects. You don't know what to do with them. 8 out of 9 firms bought by TS have been run into the ground.
