    I worked at TransCore full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Had a visionary for our department leader who understood sales were needed to grow the business.

    Cons

    Immediate profit caused downsizing for the short term. Long term the group closed this portion of the business.

    I worked at TransCore full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for TransCore for a couple years and it was an overall great experience. The managers were dedicated and helpful. I actually enjoyed going to work every day! My sales quotas were realistic and the work environment was comfortable. The company provided good "warm leads".

    Cons

    Mediocre pay and no real opportunity for advancement. While I worked there I consistently exceeded sales quotas, but was never offered a higher level sales position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer opportunity for advancement and pay better.

    I worked at TransCore full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employees were easy to work with and are will to assist when needed.

    Cons

    Management had attitude and was so fast to yell at you when you ask a question or if a customer asked to speak with them. They had no patience at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training your managers they need to be more of a people person instead of a do nothing type of person. Who rather sit around and complain and talk about every customer.

    I worked at TransCore full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people were very easy to work with. I found that being a supervisor was easier than I first considered and managing a staff of 10+ proved to be very satisfying.

    Cons

    Working with some of the Clients can be tough. Also, the computer equipment should be upgraded. Most of all, the hourly wage should be a lot higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more into your support staff and stop being cheap! Seek to promote from within.

    I worked at TransCore full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay was ok as it was via an agency. one hour lunch.

    Cons

    Extremely dis-organized. Management do not know what they are doing and the employees get fired for it. High turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to do a re-shuffle or get rid of some managers as they are bad for these government contracts. It slows down productivity if workers are not trained properly. when workers are trained properly, then they can be productive and feel more confident.
