    I worked at TransCore full-time for less than a 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.

    Former Employee - Supervisor in Houston, TX

    I worked at TransCore full-time for less than a 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 for less than a 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.

    Former Employee - Engineering Director
    Former Employee - Engineering Director

    I worked at TransCore full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Freedom to do your job, make your own decisions. Work when you have to work, take time off when you need it, you decide. You get as much responsibility as you want and you can handle. If you are a high performer, the rewards will be there for you. This is a fairly flat organization giving middle managers/project managers direct accessibility to the top decision makers.

    Cons

    If you have a position of responsibility, your job never ends. If you like to work, this is great, if you want 8 to 5, forget about it. Lots of travel sometimes for extended periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things have changed since I first started working there. The atmosphere has begun to be more formal and regimented with less control given to middle managers. Also, there is more management. Reverse this trend, it takes away the things that made TransCore unique.

    Pros

    Freedom and flexibility to perform duties. Often able to make your own schedule as long as your work is completed.

    Corporate ownership demands that more work is done with less people. Benefits have declined in recent years.

    Incentive programs with measurable results would allow employees to feel like they can make a difference by working smart and be rewarded for their effort.
