    Pros

    "Best reasons" to work at the company are sadly limited. Focus is on sales only. Extreme pressure to perform with little recognition given for job well done.

    This company employs some wonderful talent. Benefits are decent. Exciting projects are available to work on.

    Cons

    Company has very old mindset. There is a palpable arrogance at the corporate level which refuses to understand the structure in place, and how it isn't working for so many. As someone else wrote: When people leave in droves, pay attention.

    It goes without saying that more than most are stressed and very unhappy in this company. Morale is at an all-time low, with corporate management serving dictates that translate as "bad behavior" by the employees. Condescending attitudes and lack of appreciation are what drive this workplace, and there is clearly no boundary between work and personal time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sadly, unless corporate management can see how they are clearly wasting the talent of so many all in lieu of the almighty dollar, a sad awakening will befall this firm. Time to wake up and smell the unhappiness, people. Your ignorance will not serve you in moving this corporation forward.

    Pros

    TranSystems has some of the best and most competent people to work with. Many are hardworking, smart and energetic that want to be part of something special. This company has the potential for tremendous growth.

    Cons

    The culture that executive management has allowed to exist drives good people out. Unfortunately a few bad apples have made TranSystems a negative place. Communication from executive leadership is limited to a bi-weekly newsletter there is no attempt to get to know the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The good news is that with one or two changes in personnel TranSystems can get back on track to the record growth they've seen in past years. The bad news is the person who can act refuses to even acknowledge there is a problem.
